What does everyone think about elimination communication? The idea that you can teach your child from birth to use the toilet? I've only read a few articles on it, but I guess you use timing and cues to train them? Sounds a little crazy to be holding a one month old over the toilet? I think it's smart to start early, but I'm not sure about that early. Has anyone tried this or do you know someone who has? What are your thoughts?

I have a friend who does it successfully. Wasn't for me. You have to be too hypervigilant. I cloth diaper for 1 years, but that's as crunchy as I get.

Um, no. I have a feeling I will have enough going on as a first time mom and learning to be a SAHM. Call me lazy, but I will stick with diapers.
