I'm kinda surprised that EC'ers are hurt/disappointed/saddened by misconceptions about EC'ing. Just b/c it's not something most parents have any desire to do (or even understand completely) doesn't negate your experience with it.
That said, there is a lot of good information on this thread, and by sharing it all in the Diapering forum, I'm sure there are mama's who have been enlightened who previously thought Elimination Communication = poop all over the place
but I don't see why the hurt emotions over how others choose to approach the toileting process (and really, that's what it is regardless of if you start at birth, or age 3).
I think there has been a lot of insight into why people don't EC, and that's what was asked
I think some are taking the comments too personally, when we all come from different places, and all reasons are valid - whether or not others agree with them, or not.
