‘Why would I want my babies to use the diaper as a toilet?’ Did I mention I hate cleaning up poopy diapers?’: The method we used to ditch diapers (and avoid potty training) with all 5 of our babies

“A friend posted that they didn’t use diapers – they simply held their baby over the toilet or ground, from birth, and avoided poopy diapers. I thought, ‘I’m in! Where do I sign up?’ When I discovered I was pregnant, I bought a book that explained this phenomenon that could save me from All. The. Mess. It just felt right. On the day of his birth, my son started wriggling and bearing down. I was handed a small potty and held him over it. He did that first nasty poop in the potty, and I can assure you I never looked back.”
