Would you try the diaper free baby method?

AKA: Elimination communication


It's pretty much when you use timing, signals, and cues from your infant to know when they need to eliminate waste. 

I read Mayim Bialik's  (Blossom/Penny from big bang theory) book, and she used EC with both her boys. 

SO pretty much your child is diaper-less (aside from everyone being asleep). 

When you see s/he needs to pee or poop, you grab a container/bucket/item of choice or toilet and hold it under the baby so they can use the restroom. she said in her book it was a little hard a first, but became a breeze. you quickle realize your babies facial expressions, and their actions when they are about to use the restroom. 

I thought, cool, I could try that. until she said her first kid peed every 15 minutes. -.- 

Every.15.Minutes. 

so every 15 minutes she would wait around and hold a bucket to him so he can pee. 

Lawd...I don't know about it now.

I don't think I could ever do that.

That really seems like a silly thing to do...

Amy from big bang, not Penny.


And I haven't done it, but a neighbor has. She said it was incredibly difficult at first but her daughter has been using the potty by herself since she started to walk. (11 months)

I read something about that too.
I would never want to do that. You think it's bad when the diaper has a blow out? Imagine there being no diaper. Now you have shit all over your house lol.

I have heard of that before, never even thought of doing it. Not even for a second.

Gross.  There's a reason disposable diapers were invented.
