There is something in the air, and it ain't the smell of diapers. The NY Times has an op-ed from Prof. Meredith Small about going diaper-free. She boldly confronts the true source of the hypothetical psychological trauma that EC kids might face:
I'm going to take a wild guess and say that the 75 countries that practice diaper-free training do not have a disproportionately high number of obsessive-compulsive adults. Of course, adults who were raised diaper-free may have other issues to deal with, like a strange sensation whenever anyone makes a hissing sound or the knowledge that at 7 months, a photo of you sitting on the toilet appeared on the front page of this newspaper.That kid would be Hannah, and her Google results are already traumatized enough without my printing her last name. Suffice it to say that if your kid ever meets a Hannah, he could try "So, were you diaper-free?" as a pickup line.
