    Well, the new baby, Leo, is just over 6 weeks. We had a rough start EC-wise because I was in a bad way for the first week. Then he wouldn't eat, and we all got 2 separate colds... He's started eating well just in the last week and a half, and EC is settling down (easier when you know he has to poop!). We periodically get to the bathroom before he soils his diaper, but usually he's peed a little bit and has saved most of the pee and poop for the bathroom. These days we miss about 1 real poop (of 5-6) each day (I don't count wet farts).

    We are using a cloth diaper service and have been getting 45 diapers each week. Last week we had 12 left clean, so that means we use only 33 diapers... Pretty good if you ask me!

    As for Ivy, I think she's ready to toilet train, but I don't have time with feeding Leo constantly and taking him to the bathroom. Ivy is going to the bathroom very well at the day home, but here she has other things on her mind. She still pees several times a day on the potty, and poops twice a day at relatively regular times, but she just plain refuses to go to the potty to do it sometimes. As with her refusing when she was 6mo, there's no point to force her (and couldn't anyway). I'm sure she'll be ready soon. She is going and getting diapers when she pees and bringing them to us!

    Well, I found 2 pairs of DSS's old training pants - gerber type - and we tried them at the bdginning of the week because Ivy could take them on and off by herself. Tuesday evening was a huge success. But then I bought some new cloth diapers that are really cute (some of our old ones were falling apart and these were the only style in her size). and now all she wants to do is wear the new polka-dot diapers!!! Shoot! I hope they get old fast!

    And she's going back and forth... a while ago she was dry at night. then she was peeing once, and DH kept her dry by taking her to the bathroom at midnight, and now she's peeing about 5 times a night and wakes up completely soaked... what's going on?

    I'm told that lately Miss Ivy refuses to use her potty and the toilet insert. Instead, she's a BIG GIRL and wants to sit on the toilet like the adults do. Well fine, but a couple of times she has fallen in!!! LOL! Oh well, she'll figure it out soon. She can hang on to the tub to help prevent falls. We have a very cute photo of this, but maybe it isn't fair to post it...
    She still feels that she must undress completely every time she uses the toilet. I wonder how long that will last?

    Wow! That's pretty impressive! WTG Ivy!! Evie is still scared of falling in....hence toilet inserts at home, and when we go out, I sit behind her on the toilet. Except sometimes the toilet is just too darned small and I can't....then she gets upset and won't go. Talk about stress!

    Last night, after being dressed in her diaper, diapercover and sweats, Ivy pulled off her pants, diaper cover and diaper, peed on the potty, then put just her pants back on. iI didn't keep track of her too much (figuring the pants would hold a bunch of pee), but she pulled the pants down and back up and used the potty every time!!! Dry pants when she went to bed and she stripped before dinner! WOOHOO! I know what I want for Christmas!

    As for Leo, I just bought another dozen cloth dipes of our smaller size (we had about 12) knowing they were the right size because both Reed and Ivy grew out of them at about 5-6 months. Um... well... They are a tad on the tight side! Shoot! He could use Ivy's size right now probably. Oh well, I'm going to stretch at least a month out of them if I can!

    He's doing pretty well, peeing and pooping in the sink. However, I'm overtired and can't put as much effort into it as I would like, or as much as I did with the other two at this age. Sleep.... need sleep.

    Oh, I'll keep them - we're hoping to have another in a couple years so there's no giving away yet!

    And I got some pretty good sleep last night so I'm feeling better.
