Natural infant hygiene provides yet another opportunity to understand and grow closer to our babies. I think the real work of natural infant hygiene is that of being in the present moment.

There are as many different ways of approaching parenting as there are cultures. However, in cultures where mothers are still parenting in the same gentle ways they have for generations, the similarities are also striking. Natural infant hygiene provides yet another opportunity to understand and grow closer to our babies. There are days when it can seem like the most difficult thing in the world to do.

The terms elimination communication and natural infant hygiene were coined by Ingrid Bauer and are used interchangeably in her book, Diaper Free! The Gentle Wisdom of Natural Infant Hygiene (2001).

Throughout most of human existence, parents have cared for their babies hygienically without relying on diapers. In many cultures around the world, mothers still know how to understand and respond to their infant's elimination needs to keep them clean and content.

Bauer has written a unique parenting guide that shows contemporary mothers and fathers how to practically incorporate this knowledge into their daily nurturing, with or without diapers. This warm comprehensive book with over 45 photos clearly outlines the benefits, the practice, and solutions to potential challenges. The author interweaves personal experience with medical research, cross-cultural examples, extensive pratical how-to support, and parents' stories. Her empathic writing style brims with encouragement and insightful parenting support.

Practicing Natural Infant Hygiene fosters a close bond and communication, prevents conventional toilet training and diapering struggles, supports a healthy body image and early toilet mastery, saves money and the environment and offers another opportunity to respond fully to your baby's needs.

Thank you, thank you, thank you ! I was not sure about trying my baby on the potty! But it works. I started her around six months and she is now 11 months and we use very few diapers throughout the day. I only started this style of potty training because she would scream so when she wet herself. What I love most about it is it doesn’t really feel like potty training… It just feels like I am taking care of your needs! It’s like feeding her helping her sleep or nursing her… Keeping her clean is a wonderful gift I can give her as a mother. This book is very easy to read and carefully thought out. I am so thankful I was brave enough to try something different than my parents, peers, and society!

I wish this book spent more time on how to practice E.C. rather than the author's personal viewpoints on various mothering techniques that have little to do with elimiation. It was helpful, but I might rather read a different book if I was going to read a how to on E.C. for the first time.

It is amazing what we have forgotten over time and through commercialization of diapers. It really works to shorten the time of potty training. Your child will be able to tell or signal you they need to go even if they cannot undress themselves. I felt it made it much easier in cleanup, because usually you would get number two in the toilet, and not in the diaper. We also started right after birth. The big caveat is that it does take time and you need the support of everyone involved who takes care of your child. If the day care people don't care then you can't expect you child to care either. It has quite a bit of upfront cost in time, but the sooner you start the sooner you finish and move on to better things. We bought this book as well as the Infant Potty Training book. Both are good sources of information.

I am so happy I ran across this book and read it while I was pregnant. I have not chosen to go diaper free, but instead started putting my son on a Baby Bjorn potty at 7 weeks old just during diaper changes. From the very beginning he peed 99% of the time which kept the new diaper dry longer OR it saved the washcloth I was using to protect myself from squirts! He also immediately began pooping whenever he needed to. This is a much more natural position for elimination than laying on your back. Now at 4 months, I would estimate that 95% of his poop ends up in the potty instead of a diaper. I cannot imagine what life would be like if I had not read this book and tried it. I consider my son potty trained...he is just not trained "not" to use his diaper yet. The best part...he LOVES sitting on the potty. He is always happy and smiling while looking at himself in the mirror. Diaper free completely is not for me, but you owe it to yourself and your baby to be open to the possibilities. Kids don't have to run around at 3 years old in diapers because we "trained" them that that is where they "should" potty. Of course the diaper manufacturers don't want you to know this!

I found this here on Amazon when my baby was 3 months old, and it introduced me to Elimination Communication/Natural Infant Hygiene. It is a simple way of life that I continue to practice with my 2 year-old. She has been EC'd since she was 3 months old, and she has a great relationship with the potty. She has no fear of it, and she completely understands the potty concept, although at her age, she is more interested in exploring than taking time to sit on her potty most of the time, but she is way ahead of where she could be if we hadn't EC'd. We also cloth diaper so she is very aware of when she goes. This book is a great way to learn about Natural Infant Hygiene, and all of its wonderful benefits. It is a good and fast read. Get it now, and enjoy.

Using this book as a guide, we have been practicing EC with our daughter since week 6. It was great until recently (month 5) when she now can't sleep well (we have come to the conclusion) because she often wakes up and needs to go to the bathroom. After reading Elizabeth Pantley's no-cry sleep books, we now know the science behind baby sleep which has revealed that babies briefly wake up many times (between sleep cycles) throughout the night and then have to fall back to sleep either with help or on their own. The problem with EC for us is our baby will sleep for 40 minutes (typical sleep cycle lasts 40-60 minutes long) and then wake up, have the sudden awareness of a very full bladder (because this awareness has grown through the use of EC) and then cry out to go to the bathroom. She goes from deeply asleep to lightly awake and then fully awake after she senses her full bladder and has to be held over the potty. This fully wakes up the family and starts an hour long process of getting her back to sleep. When other babies of her age are sleeping 5 hours (our baby used to do this prior to developing great bladder and bowel awareness through the use of EC) now she rarely goes beyond 2 hours. Of course, different babies with different personalities will have different experiences, but this is what is happening in our family, and though EC has positives (it was great when she was suffering from gas and colic because it provided relief), I'd have to say I regret choosing to do EC now that I know it seriously disturbs our daughter's and our sleep. It also disturbs her day time naps which (based on sleep research) should be around a hour and a half, and are only around 40 minutes long (she wakes up needing to go to the bathroom between cycles because of EC and can't go back to sleep after going). At this point, we don't know what to do, but continue the EC because we simply think it would be cruel to stop the EC when we were the ones who taught her to be aware of her bladder and bowels. Please consider that your child too could also suffer from sleep disturbances linked to the EC and the book doesn't tell you what to do and doesn't mention that this could happen. Sleep isn't just sleep, it is necessary to help babies rest, heal and learn.

Also, please realize that EC truly functions best within an attachment parenting style where you wear or carry your baby during the day and co-sleep at night: your baby will need you or someone really close to attend to his/her needs and if he/she turns out to be like my baby (peeing about every 20-30 minutes and pooping every 2-3 hours during the day) you will be very busy. EC is labor intensive and it is my experience that it is more intensive than attending to a diapered baby who is not using EC. The author of this book argues that it is about the same amount of work. With the sleep disturbance and the frequent trips to the potty, this is not what we are experiencing. Again, please consider the challenges that EC could contribute to or cause in addition to the positives (early freedom from diapers, earlier potty readiness, it can be very rewarding to potty your child and see the relief on his/her face when you have timed it right and helped relieve gas or a full bladder.) I would have appreciated it if the author would have presented both the positives and the negatives, including trouble shooting potential challenges.
