|How Did Our Grandmothers Do Without Disposable Diapers? by Miss_Ife(f): 1:38pm On Mar 14, 2012|
I was just talking with a pregnant friend about that. In the west, we more and more hear about "elimination communication" which consists in paying attention to the infant's signs that he/she needs to eliminate waste, without using diapers. I have to admit that it doesn't seem appealing to me at all, but still, it got me thinking. I traveled to some asian countries where I noticed children (even new born babies) were not wearing diapers and the parents used to whistle to the kid when doing his/her business. Later the kid just kind of responded to the whistle.
I know my grandmothers didn't have disposable diapers but they used clothes instead and washed them. I have no idea how it was done before that. Have you seen other methods? What did mothers used in old time nigeria?
