Re: EC resources

We found a book that we really liked, mainly because we were already doing everything that the book said to do, but also because it kinda took the modern parenting style and explained how it came to be, and what's wrong with potty training now days. It is called Early Potty Training, Train Your Child by Age 2 (or something like that). I will get the author here in a bit, but it's been a long day and I'm feeling awful lazy. FYI, DS is 16 months and completely diaper-free, day and night, has been for nearly 3 weeks now. He wears super cute boxer briefs and pees in his pants maybe twice a day now.

You highlight the words you want to be part of the link, then click on the little icon with a picture of a globe and a paper clip above the message you are writing, right under the smiley face. Paste the http:/.... right in there and hit enter!

Re: EC resources

Maybe we could add Apple Dumpling (http://hyenacart.com/onestore.php?vid=1957&category=5) and EC Wear (http://www.ecwear.com) to the 'Gear' section?

Re: EC resources

Which Diaper Free book is better? The one by Christine or Ingrid? At amazon the one by Christine has slightly better reviews.

I wouldn't say that one book is better than the other. It really depends on what you are looking for. The Gross-Loh book is more recent and she talks about using either disposable or cloth and part-time or full-time EC. Bauer is a more attachment parenting approach to EC and other matters with children.

Maybe read them both and decide for yourself which you prefer.
