Infant Potty Training
I don't know why I feel the need to do these things that go against the culture - it makes it so hard for me. Why can't I just go with the flow? But just as breastfeeding and babywearing felt so right, I feel compelled to try infant potty training.
I'd like to try the bare-bottomed approach while I'm at home and it's summer. But it's going to take some organization on my part. Like, do I put tiny little underwear on her? I know you can find some, I saw some on an EC website. But I don't know if I want to go as far as ordering some. It would be nice to have some split-bottom pants like in Asian countries. Really, I simply don't know how to clothe my baby for this. I've been combing the EC websites for tips, but they just don't get into the very specifics. I see a need for me to blog my EC experiences day by day.
I'm not going to stress about it though. I know the EC recommendation is to start from birth and no later than 6 months, but they say that their average age for fully-potty-trained is 2-years-old. Well, I started Kitten at 10 or 11 months and she was fully potty-trained at 2. So I don't know if it's really worth starting at birth, but I do want to start no later than when the baby can sit up.
I am excited too about babywearing again. I think I'm going to try a sling again, but a different one this time. I think I just had a bad time with the Sling-ezee because it was a bad fit. I'd like to try a Storchenwiege ring sling -
But I haven't decided yet. There are so many different types to choose from. I still have my trusty wrap too.
