Ever since I saw this image in the exhibition catalogue for Kid Size, I'd wondered if it was still common for Chinese kids to not wear diapers. [The show began in the late 90's, and a lot can change in China in that amount of time.] So far, I've only been able to come up with a couple of messageboard reports of a Chinese parent holding her kid folded in half, butt-down, off a curb or over the sink in a restaurant.
Anyone know 1) do Chinese parents still not use diapers in significant numbers, and 2) how do they do it? Spidey sense? I mean, there are definitely a few times--2 out of 10, say--when we'll be chatting with the kid, and she'll suddenly freeze as a look of strained panic takes over her face, and I'll be all, "Would you like a magazine?"
But that's pretty unreliable pee-dar. So what's the ancient Chinese secret?
