What EC Looks Like Here…

I did EC for a short time with both R2 and R3 but didn’t stick with it. This time I did more reading and gave it a shot, and almost quit again until I realized that even though I tend to be an all or nothing person, it IS possible to do EC part time. I figure I’m not the only one like me so I wanted to share how EC is working for us to encourage others.

Honestly the only time I’m consistent is every time she wakes up. I put her on the potty first thing in the morning (she FILLS IT UP!) and after every nap. There are other times when I can tell she’s getting ready to poo that I put her on and am sometimes successful in catching but, really, I don’t know what her cue is, if she has one. I’m busy with 4 kids, getting ready to move, then we’ll be home schooling… so I’m not going to beat myself up about “not being in tune” with her. I know when she’s hungry, tired, etc and that’s enough! LOL

The way I see it, EC is a chance for her to be more aware of her body and be used to the potty when she’s ready to be done with diapers. :)


Even the big kids get are into it!
