Has anyone here practiced EC? A month ago I worked on it for a week after reading up a bit at tribablbaby.com, and now I have the book "Diaper Free" by Ingrid Bauer that I'm trying to read when I have time. (Time? What's that?) The week I worked on it we were doing pretty well--I mostly ended up with DD peeing all over me, as that was the best way I could watch for her "cues" in order to make the cue sound. We successfully caught two pees in the bathroom sink by day two. After my days off work, though, I ended up working 6 days in a row, and didn't end up practicing when I was home.
We've gotten out of the habit of practicing, and I want to start again. I've even bought her a little BabyBjorn travel potty to hold her over . I had her sit on it for about 10 minutes one morning while daddy was taking his shower (we like to have her hang out in the bathroom while we shower anyway, usually in her bouncey chair, so the warm vapors can help her stuffy nose) and she peed twice, which was really exciting!
Anyways, I'm just seeing if anyone else here has played around/been successful with EC.
