Toilet training?

Toilet training. We think of this as one of those necessary parts of raising a child. However, we do not intend to "toilet train" our daughter. This is not because we intend to leave our daughter in nappies (American = diapers) for the rest of her life but because we have not nappy-trained her in the first place. Think about it. Why train a child into a habit when two or three years later you are going to expect them to start doing the complete opposite? I suppose you are probably thinking that it is necessary because a baby has no bowel or bladder control. This is simply not true. Babies are born able to control both their bowels and bladders. If we recognise this, we can avoid the difficulties of toilet training by allowing baby to use the toilet (or potty) from birth.
