Hi juju. We had a lotus birth w/our second. I would recommend it but we actually opted out this time for the exact reason....our 3 yr old was too rambunctious and we have stairs....just couldn't deal w/it. Howver that said, I totally recommend it. It was very neat. The logistics are a bit harder. We used a strainer and diaper to put it in. Some people make a bag for it. There is an extensive thread under homebirth archives that I started years ago....it has a lot of info. HTH

Juju, do a search here for "lotus birth", there have been some recent discussions about it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
