    Talking EC success at first try...so pleased!

    Hi all,

    Perhaps this belongs in the woo-hoo room too!

    Our wonderful little boy is 11 days old now and we tried our first shot at EC today and it worked!!!

    I made this thread a while ago...

    ....if you need to get up to speed.

    In hall honesty, we could have tried it a few days ago as he started to get into some kind of pattern with his poops that I could read but for the 1st week of his life it was so random I thought it really wasn't worth trying then.

    I'd just fed him and he was a little fussy and squirmy and twisting around a bit so I thought I'd try- I held him over the basin with his onesie rolled up and nothing on the bottom and made little grunty noises and within 2-3 seconds he wee-ed and then a few seconds later did a poop! He seemed so relaxed about it and like he knew what to do...I was so pleased!

    I then popped a fresh nappy on him and he settled straight down for a snooze.



    Any of you with little ones or little ones on the way who want to give it a shot, I say go for it...perhaps it was a little fluke for us but it just made so much sense to me and I think it'll be what we do when we can in the future.

    Just wanted to share the news!!

    Well I think it was actually a success and not a fluke! We're at 3 'deposits' from 5 attempts! It takes a little more effort on my part but I think he's more comfortable and that's what counts.

    Ha! Change your ticker already! I nearly flipped when I read you still had a bun in the oven ready to go AND a newborn!

    And good stuff with the EC! I wonder how it would go with a 6 month old???Hmm. DH would freak out!
