What????

Kerry said...

BOTH!

Wait, is that a real thing?

Moniker Challenged said...

What's baby sign for "I'm about to eliminate in a Costco shopping cart?"

JenB said...

It's odd when you have a refined friend for years and one day they talk to you about poo. Definintely takes the relationship to an uncomfy level

Heather said...

It's not potty training, it's parent training.

Laura said...

awesome - at least that is what I tell everyone. even though I haven't and wouldn't do it - ever. please. no diapers? gross.

theferrisoneofall said...

ummm, GROSS! Duh!

Emmy said...

Awesome and gross. But so part of my life, that hey why not?

Mandy said...

Sick Nasty!

Kari said...

AWESOME!

No sticky poopy dipes in your trash can.

And you can use one of those cutesy sprayers to just clean off their bottoms!

win-win, girlfriend!

Kestrel said...

Um, freakishly awesome. Duh TAMN, anything that gets the beasties out of diapers is awesome.

Although if you cloth diaper, they do make some really adorkable diaper covers...

The Boob Nazi said...

I don't get it. I'm slightly excited about this fact.

The Boob Nazi said...

Also, I love the picture of the tights with the shoes in your header.

kris said...

LOL. Yes it's a real thing and yes I've actually done it with my last kid and it works. Should I be humiliated?

Frau said...

Awesome! I have never known a baby who used this method who wasn't absolutely PERFECT at it.

The turds on the floor got blamed on the sad diapered kids. Because we know that cloth doesn't *really* hold it and disposible are made by cold, unfeeling machines which make mad babies shed their uncomfy wraps of chemicals.

So yeah, it apparently has never failed.

evitafjord said...

I'm pretty sure it's all part of the Plan. Will there even be diapers in the Millennium? Better get celestial about it now.

Sarah said...

Poop is what went through my mind when I heard this awful Miley Cyrus song. I would much rather hear all about the twinsies' #2 stories.

Carrie K said...

Totally cool if you don' mind poop all over your rug and lap and hands and face! I know they have a lot of accidents but whatever, its worth it! I actually LIKE sitting in the bathroom all day holding my kid over the toilet. She's so good at this diaper-free, toilet going method that she can even make cute little toot songs with her bum.

toot, ti toot, toot, toot!

Allison said...

I'm kind of proud to say that I didn't know what this was until I read the comments.

And now...ew.

Megan said...

Sorry girl. . . . I don't get it. Maybe it's b/c I'm a single {biz-woman} chick without a hubby or kids of my own, so I obviously can't understand your mommy lingo.

Cristin said...

Okay, I'm almost 100% positive that you're reading my blog now. There are just too many eerie similarities.

Stacy Averett said...

So, while you're looking at a really cute sweater, or you're telling your totally spiritual story in RS, and the baby has to go what are you going to do....just leave and take the kid to the bathroom? No way!

Lt. Col. Samantha Carter said...

Um, Srsly? TOTES sick nast!

That's Ms. Amy to You... said...

What? The twinners aren't potty trained yet? I heard Lynzii's triplits were. So sad for you..... now I'm all frownee.

Robert and Sherry Leal said...

I say anything's fair game for topics of conversation when you're married. At least it is if you're as close to your hubby as I am to mine. If not, sad for your (frownsmile).

Rebecca said...

Is this one of your New Year's resos? I can't wait to see the list of the others.

Mrs. Mordecai said...

Um, hello, gross. But if the twinsies are potty trained before anyone else in pre-pre-school? Totally worth it.

MJ said...

Ha ha ha ha. You can potty train them when they're newborn and they'll be accident free by the time they're 3...or you can potty train when they're 2 1/2 and they'll be accident free when they're 3...anyone who tells you their 9 month old is potty trained is crazy! Seriously TAMNers, you have way more important spiritual mommy things you can be doing that will affect the twinsies long term development. You don't want to distract them from Baby Mozart do you?!?! I guess you could pull the Beehives from school to have them help you though...

Jillsywillsy said...

Wow. I just became %100 sure of where you get at least some of your blogging inspiration. By the way, love the picture with the tights.

Tiffany said...

I had to google it to see what it was. Ew.

Melissa said...

Gross and impossible!

Bri!!! said...

I have heard it works. I use cloth diapers, but the whole EC thing just kind of seems a little strange to me. Although I have heard it really gets you in tune with your baby. I guess that's what has been done for thousands of years before diapers. I myself would NEVER attempt it. As for being in RS and your baby needs to go, I know of parents who use EC and use cloth when they are out and about.

Beth said...

EWWWW!

Tricia said...

come on all you haters....you KNOW when your kid is about to poop their pants......you've never seen the "Poop Face"!???? I say go for it. And then secretly judge all your friends for being so "mainstream" and undedicated parents. That's what I do.

Megan said...

You're only asking because you already finished it w/ the twinzies, right?! Because if your kids aren't potty trained by the time they can crawl to the potty, then ... well ... I need a new idol. *sigh* I need a diet coke just thinking about your potential parental failure.

Mandy said...

I guess if you have that much time on your hands... *Frownsmile* So boring and gross.

Eva said...

it really cuts down on the diapers. But srsly--your only starting to think about this now? We started week 1.

Nahl said...

I don't think I have what it takes to be a mommy. Actually, I'm sure of it.

Super L said...

I think you should buy the twinners some "split pants" like the kids wear here in China. It makes it so much easier for them to just go wherever they need too. After all, you wouldn't want them to be repressed . . . I'm sure nobody would mind, they're so cute . . .

Christina said...

Oh, TAMN. (frownsmile). You mean you haven't been doing EC since the day the twinses were born? I thought you were urban and hip....

Tulsi said...

My kids were all trained by age 2, my son earlier than the girls, so I don't know why people say wait until they are about 3. But my kids are not close in age and didn't like being out done by anyone else. I'm always surprised when they are still in diapers at age 3. And I seriously didn't train them. They did it their selves. I would potty train a child before I would try and get girls to go to Nursery!!!!!

Little Lovables said...

It's so chic! I'm a total frump tho since my 4 year old is only half way potty trained

Sabrena Suite-Mangum said...

I've been waiting for this entry...

And I want to cordially invite you to the SLC EC meeting at my house next week! I'm not sure if it will be a bunch of hippies or democrats.


No offense TAMN, but if you let your kids CIO, I can't really see EC being a 'fit' (you actually have to like, pay attention to your kids and stuff).

Maybe in the next life?

Franklin Fam said...

i was thinking this had to do with talking on the phone while on the crapper.. sorry... sometimes you have to multi-task as a mommy!

Staci said...

oh these comments made me all smiley.

Booher Blogs said...

So cool. So much easier than lugging around a giant diaper bag filled with Earth-hater diapers wipes. I didn't start in the hospital with my twins so I'm way behind. But I'm sure by 9 months they'll just start going by themselves anyway.

Molly said...

Def makes the funniest, most unique jokes ever! Bah ha ha! And considering my pathetic, grad-student-living-overseas life, hearing about what your babies poop looks like is really important to me! Cuz it makes me feel extra bad for not having babies yet.

Amy Jones said...

both, fo sure

Kindi and Tyson said...

Ew. Ew. Ew. http://blog.naturalbirthandbabycare.com/

Mrs. Clark said...

Awesome, if it works, gross if it doesn't. Guess I'm an ignorant mom--I never got any cues my kids were going until the deed was done. And I did breastfeed!

Mishqueen said...

TAMNers!! I've suggested like TWICE that you investigate going diaperless! I just figured you already knew what it was and passed it over. Seriously, if you're an up-and-coming uber momma, you HAVE to have your children perfectly potty-trained since birth. All the GOOD moms are doing it.
