My DS has been taking off his diapers recently and we've had two incidents this week where he's taken off his poopy diaper. After thinking about it for awhile, I realized that it's a sign that he might want to start EC. How do I get started? I'm going to get him a Baby Bjorn little potty soon, since it looks like the best kind. Is there anything else I should get/read/consider/do?

He's 10 months? Check out the later starters thread at the top of the forum.<br><br>
Off the top of my head I'd say:<br>
cue him when you know he's going<br>
set him on the potty when he wakes up dry from a nap, bedtime, or takes off a dry diaper*<br>
watch him for signals that he needs to eliminate<br><br><br>
Those are the 3 things you could do super easily.<br><br>
Oh, and just continue to be aware of him!<br><br>
*while you're waiting to get your BBLP, you could try holding him in front of you on the toilet. It's not nearly as good for a heavy, more independent, baby, but it's worth a shot.

In addition to pp's suggestions--you could just try putting him on the potty every time YOU go too, and just tell him, hey, I'm going potty, you want to try too? Or something...my dd likes that.
