We have been ECing part time since birth, our situation has changed so that I can be a SAHM (B'H) and so we've taken EC to the next level with lots of naked time, diaperless time, ECing in public potties.<br><br>
DD is 9.5 months.<br><br>
We've had the BBLP since she was 5 months... we get most of her pees. She used to poop in her dipe and I would change her immediately. Now that I'm with her all the time and she's, well, naked, I have missed every single one of her poops. Our carpet has caught them all... but we're obviously not communicating.<br><br>
Any thoughts/experiences/feelings? After observing her for 9 months, we **** catch most of the pees by timing, not by cues.<br><br>
We live in a rental, our carpet can't take much more of this.

Sounds like naked time is stressing you out, so I would go back to diapers. What I've found for our family is that the more I really want to catch, the less I catch, and the more unhappy everyone is. It's pretty subtle, but I think it's worth backing off if you're feeling frustrated. If you are only bothered by the poops, have her wear tight pants or shorts--then you still know if she's wet, but aren't getting poop everywhere. Good luck!

Sometimes it just takes a little complaining! Maybe I should jump in and complain about our lack of poop catching too...
