Toilet training?

Toilet training. We think of this as one of those necessary parts of raising a child. However, we do not intend to "toilet train" our daughter. This is not because we intend to leave our daughter in nappies (American = diapers) for the rest of her life but because we have not nappy-trained her in the first place. Think about it. Why train a child into a habit when two or three years later you are going to expect them to start doing the complete opposite? I suppose you are probably thinking that it is necessary because a baby has no bowel or bladder control. This is simply not true. Babies are born able to control both their bowels and bladders. If we recognise this, we can avoid the difficulties of toilet training by allowing baby to use the toilet (or potty) from birth.

A quick post

Baby girl is sleeping at the moment so I thought it was a good time to get in a quick blog post. The perfectionist in me wants to get the layout of this blog sorted out before I let people see it but then I realised that it will always be a work in progress and that I will never have the time to "perfect" it so I've decided to let my blog be seen by others.

You might have noticed the link about elimination communication on the sidebar. We (that is my husband and I) practise elimination communication with baby girl. I will write a bit more about it soon.

My Family

I thought I ought to start with an introduction to my family: my family consists of my husband, myself and our baby daughter.

Here they are at a wedding we went to a couple of months ago:
Baby girl is 3 months in this photo. She is 5 months now.
