I Need to Complain and I'm Entitled!

Hi people,

It has been a long time since I’ve contributed anything worthwhile to this blog. No worries I’ve not forgotten you people. I’ve just been busy, been under the weather, and all that good stuff. I have a whole lot to tell you guys about these past few weeks; however, I will do it gradually in different posts. But for now, I feel like complaining. Everyone is entitled, right? Well, here is my long, drawn out rant. Brace yourself because it will be a long one.

I hate wearing diapers! If I could get rid of them and be cured, I would! No wonder babies cry! No wonder they freak out. To parents who do not understand, and most do not as they are not wearing diapers themselves and do not know how it feels, change your baby as soon as they wet. Please, I beg you please, do not let them sit in it and get to it when it is convenient for you. I know how horrible it feels, and unlike a baby, I can actually communicate this to you. Diapers are the pits. They are the worse. The only thing I’m grateful about them is that they allow me to lead a normal social life. Other than that, I’d love to be rid of them. I’d love to just wave my finger one time and be rid of this stupid incontinence.

When I have children, I’m going to do elimination communication, which means I’m potty training them from birth. I will never, ever subject my baby to the evils of diaper wearing if it is not necessary. If there is no medical problem present, anybody, even a baby, has any business wearing a diaper, since babies are born fully continent. It is our society that trains them to go in a diaper just to retrain them later. For more information on infant potty training, go to the Diaper Free Baby website. Doing this for your baby is the best thing you could ever do. Not to mention, you will never have to deal with potty training power struggles, as they will only know the potty and nothing different. You will spare your baby the horrors that diapers bring, such as unbearable and painful diaper rash (Most parents, when changing their babies say “I know. I know it hurts. when the baby is screaming bloody murder due to the pain from a diaper rash. I hate when I hear parents say that because they REALLY DO NOT know how it feels. I just want to scream at them that they do not know and that it is stupid for them to say that they do. I can say that, though, because I do know how it really feels, and believe me, diaper rash hurts so bad that it is unbearable for water of any temperature to even come close to the private areas.), infections, and discomfort, marks on the skin that hurt from the diaper pinching, and friction burns. Diapers may be convenient for the parents, but this convenience comes at the cost of the baby, and I don’t feel like that is fair. So, I will again conclude by saying that diapers are evil, and I will not make my baby wear them. If I did not have to wear them, trust me when I say this, I would not. But I do not have a choice in the matter, so I’m up a creek without a paddle and a canoe. My babies do have a choice, if a medical problem is not present, so I’d like to do some self sacrificing and not subject them to stupid diapers. Stupid, stupid, stupid diapers! There is nothing like wetting and soiling yourself and wearing it. Ah! It’s the life! Not!

Whew! I feel better now!
