Nappy Free Babies!

I was chatting with a neighbor and her 6 month old daughter last week when suddenly the mother jumped back and lifted her baby out in front of her body. The baby was peeing! A big pee too by the looks of things. So I pointed to Aaron's terry towelling nappy and said 'She doesn't wear nappies?' Apparently not.

So far I haven't been able to find out WHY they don't wear any but they really don't. We meet many of the neighborhood babies when we go for our morning or evening walks and after last week, I've noticed that none of them are in nappies. I'm still asking the parents 'WHY?' but the most consistent answer I receive is that they will do it when the child is older. This doesn't make sense to me....isn't 'older' when you toilet train the child?

I have heard that there are cultures where toilet training begins in infancy but, I don't think thats the case here.

Its just a mystery at the moment but I'll keep you posted on my findings.

You should ask my mom when you're back in Ipoh how she toilet trained my sis and I since we were babies. It takes a lot of patience, but hey, babies are like dogs. Once you trained them the right away, we will only pee when allowed to! :-)
