Department of Totally Excessive Obsession With Our Babies

You went to pre-natal yoga and birthing classes, you bought all Scandinavian bio-dynamic baby equipment, you had a drug-free quiet birth at home with a midwife, doula, guru and Native American spiritual mother.

You breast-fed religiously, hand-made all the baby food with pesticide-free organic vegetables, you limited the vaccinations, made sure your pediatrician voted for Nader, and you co-slept, chanted, massaged ith ayurvedic oils, and kept your partner heavily involved in the psycho-dynamic non-coercive nurturing that the other materialists call parenting.

But did you practice Elimination Communication? According to this budding new movement promoted at, there is yet another way to obsess about baby, and that's by "communicating" with her bowel movements! Remember: Elimination Communication should always be gentle, non-coercive, and based on babies' interests and needs. Communication is the most important aspect of Elimination Communication, and should be the focus.

Basically, skip the diapers entirely, and when you "feel" baby's about to wanna go--plop her on the potty! If you really want to bond with your baby, you'll do it. What kind of a parent are you if you're not giving prompt loving attention to your baby's elimination needs? Do you really not care about the bond of trust that is strengthened when caregivers respond to the baby's elimination needs?

What kind of a parent are you?

Granted I'm a parent without a child, but were I to be a parent with a lil poop machine, I think the answer would be: I'm a parent who doesn't want to be shit on.

Is that so wrong?

also no child... but frankly, if you have the time to figure it out, I think its brilliant. It's either spending the time with the kid in the bathroom or spending the time changing the stinky or wet diaper. But I'm sure I'll end up bowing down to the throne of Pampers if/when it becomes my turn.

I'm waiting to see if which spammers pick up on this article...could be amusing...

Linda, I see your babies donning bear fur diapers. (Okay, not really but I thought the phrase "bear fur diapers" might attract spammers like, well, like a bear to honey... or vice versa.)
