The EC is going very, very well. Approximately, every 2-3 hours, often when Anjali stirs, we will take her to pee/poop in her little Baby Bjorn potty and she does. She has not pooped in her diaper for over 2 days. She has wet her diaper, although she has had a bunch of dry ones, but she will not poop in her diaper if we give her the opportunity to use her potty. She must hold it and wait until we take her to go. WOW! This is unbelievable to us, and we are very excited that she can communicate this need to us and that we respond. We will say however that once you start down this path, it is very difficult to ignore the fact that you know she needs to go. When she tells us at night, for example, we cannot just ignore it and get more sleep. Since her mama is up at night for the frequent feedings, her papa is usually the one up to take her to go. That way we can try to share the responsibilities and it isn't too much for one person.. We are still working on learning the peeing cues, but I suspect that this will be easier when she doesn't pee as much.
