"Stinkin'" because it involves #2, lol.<br><br>
DS is 7.5 months now and doesn't signal (either for pees or for poos), so we've been plugging along on timing. Sometimes we go through a string of days where we'll have 3-4 catches a day, and sometimes we'll go through a string of 3-4 days where we don't catch anything. And that's fine. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
But anyway, today, it was "time" for him to go potty, so I went and got him and started taking off his dry diaper, and sat him on the BBLP. He did go #1 as expected (but silently this time, so I didn't realize it until after I took him off).<br><br>
But he also went #2 several times! The noise of it echoed into the potty, lol. He didn't signal at all, and I did get an opportunity to watch him several times. But, I also got the opportunity to cue several times as well. It was exciting and I bet he felt so much better after getting all that out, lol.<br><br>
Sadly, I did not get to re-use the diaper b/c when I laid him back down on the table, I noticed there was some "pudding" on his bottom, and a bit of it got on the diaper.<br><br>
Maybe it'll be a few weeks or months before we have another poo catch, but I sure am excited for the one right now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

hope you get more of those catches. We actually do much better with #2 and its great- keeps the baby and the diaper pail much cleaner!

Well, I had another couple of poop catches since then. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Not because he was signaling, b/c he still does not signal, but b/c he apparently is learning that I will taken him frequently enough that he can hold it for a pottytunity. And speaking of pottytunities, I actually pottied him twice today, in public (i.e. without our BBLP with its handy sheild), and had a catch both times... AND I DIDN'T EVEN MAKE A MESS! lol. This is a great accomplishment for me, lol.

That's awesome about the public pottying! You mentioned holding it, and I think kids who are EC'ed definitely learn to hold it and wait for pottytunities. Holding it is definitely my daughter's strong suit!<br><br>
My dd didn't signal at that age, either. She did when she was tiny, then it just stopped! Kind of like she stopped signalling for nursing, and I just knew when she needed to nurse. But I would have rather she kept signalling for the potty! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
