Children in the West are being toilet trained later and later. The parents often wait for the child to show signs of being ready, however, the longer the toddler or child is in disposables the greater the conditioning and the greater the difficulty in getting out of them. Studies have shown that the longer a child stays in nappies, the more physical complications (i.e. bed wetting and constipation) the child has as he or she is increasingly conditioned to evacuate into the disposable and not to have self-control over their own body. Both the caregiver and the child become dependent on the disposable when it is not necessary. Disposables are useful for outings, or emergencies but cloth nappies or no nappies, toweling pants or leggings, can be used at home. It saves hours of hassle, work and money by training your child earlier. This is not to make parents feel guilty, but to enhance our awareness of what is unnecessary - babies learn quickly ( like kittens or puppies) and we should not underestimate their abilities. A child's brain grows and he or she learns more in the first two years than in the whole of the rest of their lives.
