Diaper Free! The Gentle Wisdom Of Natural Infant Hygiene
By Ingrid Bauer
ISBN: 0-9687519-0-3
255 pages

The first disposable diaper was invented by New Yorker Marion Donovan in 1950. Her first prototype was made out of a shower curtain! So how have parents throughout most of human existence 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.

This unique parenting guide shows contemporary mothers and fathers how to practically incorporate this knowledge into their daily nurturing, with or without diapers. Illustrated with more than 45 photos, it clearly outlines the benefits, the practice, and solutions to potential challenges. The author interweaves personal experience with medical research, cross-cultural examples, extensive practical how-to support, and parents' stories.

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.
