Hi mamas-<br>
my dd is 11.5 months old and I am beginning to think about "potty training". Is it too late to start EC? I had no idea you could start this so early! What exactly does EC'ing entail? Any info/advice would be appreciated...I will be googling away <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
TIA

Check out the book 'Early start potty training'-- my library had it. A good guide to early pl/late-start EC (depending on your perspective). I don't know why it's not referenced more often, really. Let's see...<a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FEarly-Start-Potty-Training-Linda-Sonna%2Fdp%2F007145800X%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1205463365%26sr%3D8-1" target="_blank">Amazon</a><br>
HTH!

I'm also a late starter, my dd is 13 months and I just started the other day. I learned about EC by borrowing a book from the library entitled "The Diaper Free Baby" by Christine Gross-Loh. That led me to the website diaperfreebaby.com. On the website, they had a link to this forum and that's how I'm here. Better late than...<br>
I'm glad I started.

There is a yahoo support group for late starters. It's called IPTLatestarters I think. We started PT EC at 10 months. My daughter was almost fully potty independent for a month when she was 16 months old. Then she totally reverted. She is mostly diaper free but I clean up a lot of pee. I ask her where pee pee goes and she tells me "On the floor!" and runs away laughing. She gets it, she just won't do it! She is 19 months old.

Glad there are others like me out there. I didn't learn about ec till my son was about 6 mo old, and I was under the impression it was something you had to start from birth. Now he's 14 months and we're starting to think about using the potty. I was hoping to use ec principles to help him. I came here looking for book reccommendations. I'll check out the one a pp mentioned. Thanks!

I was just looking to ask the same question about whether 11 months is too late to start. I've been able to get him on the potty at the right moment a few mornings lately to have less poopy diapers, but I didn't know if I'd be able to do anything else. Thanks for all the links and books, I'll have to check it out, I wanted to post so I could see if anyone adds anything else.
