Today I learned that when Alya is pooping, she will refuse to nurse and cry when I bring her near the breast, all while insisting on downing a bottle – followed by extreme calm and silence. This would be a helpful signal to get her on the potty if I could remember it for more than 5 minutes. We had 3 poop-outs today after several days of more breastmilk than usual. I missed all three. Fun!!
We did, however, catch 3 pees, and I feel more confident of using timing (when she wakes up, a few minutes after nursing, when she’s taken out of a carrier, etc.). I can get a pee maybe 20 – 30% of the time using these timing opportunities.
She’s making hungry noises – so I’m going to try this again.
