Hello, again. I'm Andrea Olson with Go Diaper Free. Today, we're going to talk about easy catch number three. Why should you listen to me? Because I've trained over 10,000 parents worldwide how to do EC with their babies. Easy catch number three is poop, poop catches.
Okay, so let's talk about poop. This is an easy catch for most people. I say most because we have some stealth poopers out there. If you've got a stealth pooping baby, then this might not be the easiest catch for you. If they're stealth pooping, you can catch them in the middle of it and say, "Wait," and then move them to the potty and hopefully they'll finish there and then they'll get used to waiting and going. And when they start solids, they'll stop stealth pooping, usually. You really have to pay attention at that point 'cause they'll start hiding behind the furniture, needing some privacy.
All right. So, poop catches. If you're sitting there and you know your baby is pooping, you're just watching them and waiting for them to poop and then you're gonna change their diaper after they've pooped in it? I mean, I wouldn't do that. I would definitely notice that they're starting to poop and say, "Hey, wait." Babies understand language at very early ages. I would say that to a newborn. "Hey, wait." Take off their diaper, even if they've started, even if it looks like they've already done a whole poop, take them over to that potty, put them in position, sit them on the potty or whatever, and *grunt* is your signal or your cue to them that, "Hey, it's okay to go to the bathroom here," help them to relax and finish on the toilet where poop goes.
This establishes early on very good healthy habits, hygienic habits, for babies to know where the poop goes. This is just what you do in your household now. You're doing EC, you're catching the poop. But what I want to just really, really reiterate here is that this is an easy catch because you know when your baby's pooping, most of you do, 9 out of 10 of you do, and if you know when your baby's pooping, just catch the poops.
If all you ever do for EC up until the time you decide to wrap it up with them, maybe around 14, 18 months, if all you do for EC is catch the poops, you will have a less smelly house, less smelly dirty diaper duty, I mean who likes to clean up poopy diapers? I don't. Your baby will not have to sit in his waste or poop himself and will have his dignity intact by having that help with what he can't do yet himself until he can do it himself. It is just a great thing. Easy catch number three is probably my favorite.
