Ready to Quit ECing a Toddler?

  • Posted on April 14, 2011 at 4:29 pm

Just a little note of encouragement if you feel like not doing EC with your toddler anymore…

Just the fact that he knows what a potty is for is giant steps ahead of if you’d never done anything with him. You’ve given him the opportunity to learn, you’ve responded to his needs rather than ignored them, whether or not you feel it’s “worked” or not.

(Also: I would also just like to add that if you don’t know that there are signs, or that babies have bladder awareness and control – then it’s not “ignoring” them if you aren’t ECing…ya know? Ignoring is a conscious act.)
