Oh, something wonderful has happened over the past month... Peace is out of diapers! (Except for at night, although many nights she stays dry anyway.)
Let me tell you how this happened at 14 months of age for Peace. Two words: Elimination Communication.
For those of you who don't know what Elimination Communication (EC) is, go ahead and google it for a longer explanation. But the gist of it is that you hold your baby (or toddler) over a receptacle (toilet, little potty, sink?) and make a cue sound (ours is "sssissss") when you think they have to go. (We've been doing this halfheartedly since Peace was born.) Then, badda-bing, badda-boom, they learn how to use the toilet at 14 months!
Hallelujah, praise the Lord!
Because washing diapers in this place is a PAIN IN THE BUTT. It involves carrying them outside, down three (small) flights of stairs, and to a tiny little room in the basement on the other side of the building. Not that I have done any of that anyway. My husband has done all of the laundry since we've been here because I don't want to deal with carrying things outside, down three (small) flights of stairs, and to a tiny little room in the basement on the other side of the building. (God bless him.)
