Brave New World

So, last night I made an interesting discovery on a KellyMom about potty training your infant. Since last night, I have been looking into all sorts of sites about it, and am thoroughly intrigued and fascinated.
In fact, I sent a link to my best friend (the one who gave birth last week) but she scoffed, calling it a gimmick to make your child more advanced. But I don’t think so. After all, not all cultures diaper their babies. In most of Asia and Africa, they look on our Western practice of forcing our children to sit in their own excrement as disgusting and barbaric.
Now, this does sound like a rather… intensive practice. I would have to really pay attention to avoid getting peed and pooped on. But since I have such a hyper-attachment philosophy going right now anyway, it might be worth a try. After a couple of weeks… When I’ve got the breastfeeding thing down. They say though that once you’ve got it down, there are usually very very few accidents (no more than normal with toddlers/small children) and you shouldn’t need diapers unless the baby is sick or something.
And think of the money I’ll save on diapers and laundry services (for cloth diapering).
