Natural Potty Training Can Help Parents Use Less Diapers

September 26th, 2007

There is a natural potty training method available which can help Parents use fewer diapers and begin their child’s toilet experience as young as six weeks. It’s called elimination communication (EC) or Natural Infant Hygiene and many parents are trying it out.  In her book, “Diaper Free,” The Gentle Wisdom of Natural Infant Hygiene, copyrighted in 2000, Ingrid Bauer explains how this new method originated in India and Africa.

Save Money and Protect the Environment

The EC method can save families money and protect the environment. In many countries, landfills full of garbage are becoming a serious concern. Not using diapers on a regular basis means less waste and more protection for the environment.

Families can also save money. It is estimated that the average family will spend over three-thousand dollars in diapers just on one baby! Not to mention that with each diaper change, costly wipes are often used to get baby clean. EC training eliminates much of that cost and less wipes are used when a baby eliminates the mess instead of sitting in it for a longer period of time. Diaper rash becomes non-existent giving a family another savings of not having to buy expensive diaper cream. Baby is healthier and parents are happier knowing that they are doing something good for the environment as well as the family budget.
