12:46 pm - EC
Before Inara was born I thought people were crazy to think that EC (Elimination Communication) could actually work. Elimination communication is a form of nurturing in which a caregiver uses timing, signals, cues, and intuition to help an infant address his or her elimination needs, partially or completely avoiding the use of diapers.
I thought that it would be an impossibly hard task. However, I've been doing it with Inara for about the past 3 weeks and now I've only had one poopy diaper since Sunday. THAT'S ONE POOPY DIAPER IN 4 DAYS FOR A 4.5 MONTH OLD BABY. This may not sound so amazing until you understand that Inara poops once or twice a day.
She understands when I take her to the toilet and I pay attention to her cues that she has to use the toilet (we're just doing this for pooping right now). It's not hard or time consuming and it seems so much nicer than ever sitting in your poop. I love it and she seems to think it's fun too!
