When I was ECing, I always figured people like to do what they're used to. Some people are used to diapers, and that's cool. I could never get the hang of them. I'm all thumbs. Most everyone I've known uses the toilet, so it just make sense to me that a baby would too.

Totally joking (well, sort of) The plan with my first was to EC for obvious poops but he would get rashy even in dry diapers. So we wound up gung-ho EC from the start to deal with super sensitive skin that turned out to be caused by food sensitivity. So EC was the answer to a complication in my life, rather than a complication in itself. I could see skipping it if I had a robust baby who never indicated discomfort in a diaper and I could do it one handed and blindfolded.

I'm now returning this thread. I've removed UAV's and some posts that were in response to those UAV's. Any more UAV's may result in this thread's permanent removal.
