Our 19mo. has been doing really well with her EC'ing. She usually goes diaperless during our days while I'm home schooling. She and I both miss at times (I miss reading her cues or listening to my inner clock that alerts me to her duration of play without a potty break), but we both still enjoy EC'ing part-time.
I have been wanting to capture how we EC on video for those who are interested, but haven't been able to get that going yet. While browsing on YouTube though, I found another video done recently by another family of how they EC their 5 month old.
I think this video is very well done. Aside from the fact that it's crisp and clear and has a bit of special effects added to it, it shows you how a baby is cued to go to the bathroom. Since I have an older baby who is used to EC'ing, she cues me most of the time. This video will most likely help those Mamas with smaller babies or those looking to start EC.
The mother has her baby positioned just like an adult would be on the toilet. The baby's clothing and the mother's embrace prevent the baby from falling into the toilet. Some babies like this position. For us, my baby preferred to be held in my lap when she was that age. I'd sit side-ways on the toilet seat and she would go to the bathroom with her back to my stomach. We liked this position as it felt the most secure to us.
This video is particularly good for those of you interested in EC because they even show the package left by their baby! =) I've found it's only the EC Mamas that get so excited with their children's "packages". =) I know I'm always excited to see my baby use the toilet!
So without further ado, here is a wonderful find of an EC video. Thanks to the parents!
