What if babies and toddler don’t have to sit in their own waste? What if you could avoid the battle of potty training a rambunctious toddler?...more
When I was pregnant with my first child, one of my biggest hesitations about becoming a new parent was the thought of changing countless dirty diapers and of toilet training. I often wondered if there was a more natural process. I wondered what ancient people would have done!
I admit that the title of my post is a little misleading. I have never felt "mighty" about practicing elimination communication (or EC). It's just what felt right. We've definitely had our ups and downs, especially when kids have been sick....more
When it comes to deciding how to diaper your little one, there are lots of good reasons to choose cloth. Cloth diapers contain none of the harmful chemicals present in disposables, there is less waste going to the landfill and cloth diapering families often experience less diaper rash and skin irritations. Cloth can also be way cheaper in the long run than a couple of years of disposable diapers. Here are ten ways to save money by cloth diapering.
After taking a little break from elimination communication over the weekend, this morning I was determined to get my son to his baby bjorn little potty first thing in the morning. I knew this would be my best chance to catch a pee, since he normally pees as soon as he wakes up.
He woke up at 8:30. I heard the rustling, so I ran into his room and promptly undressed him. He was airlifted to the little potty, which I had set up this morning. A Sham Wow had been placed underneath, just in case.
