Diaper-free baby advice


3 per unit Virtual OK

Do you want to develop a loving relationship with your baby—one in which you listen to their needs and respond gently?

Do you want to avoid the waste and pollution that comes with using disposable diapers?

Do you want to avoid the water waste that happens when laundering cloth diapers?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, Elimination Communication may be a good choice for you and your baby.

I will provide advice on how to use elimination communication with your baby, so that you can bypass the potty training stage all together.

Elimination communication is not an odd or new practice, neither should it feel forced or manipulative. It's simply a way to provide loving care to your baby, noticing their signals and providing a way to eliminate in an appropriate container (or even directly in the toilet).

People all over the world raise their babies without diapers, and it's an excellent way to eliminate waste, as well as to build a trusting relationship with your baby.

Training & Qualifications

I am a mother of three, and used a combination of elimination communication, cloth diapering, and disposables with my children. I never went through a potty training stage with any of my children, as they were familiar with the toilet from the time they were newborns.

Availability & Preferences

My availability is flexible.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I'm delighted with the report Mariana provided of Immigrating to Canada! It really showcases Mariana's skills as a freelancer of traveling and I'll be practicing conversational Spanish with Mariana and able to learn more about the "pandora's knowledge" that Mariana is and all the wisdom she's bringing to our community here in Simbi. Thank you for being here, dear soul. Namaste/Alohashow more

About Mariana Abeid-McDougall

𝐁𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐝𝐞𝐚𝐥/𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐞 𝐚 𝐦𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐠𝐞, 𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐞 𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐞: * I do not under any circumstances promote MLM products; please do not request my services for this. * I am on Simbi to barter. Please do... not contact me with the intent of funneling me to your paid products. ___ 𝗔𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗠𝗲 I'm an experienced freelance writer and editor who loves to meet people, barter, and help others. I'm also an avid traveller, a happily married wife since 2006, and a homeschooling mother of three children born in 2010, 2012, and 2014. I have an extensive background in various fields, as I have been working since 1997 in various jobs, often simultaneously. I have been a lifeguard, an adult swimming lessons instructor, a retail sales clerk, a call centre operator, a teacher, a Registered Kinesiologist, a personal trainer, a writer, an editor, and the list goes on. I also served 7 years in the Canadian Naval Reserves as a military clerk. Aside from my professional experience, my travel experience is also extensive. I've lived in 3 different countries, and our family has had the chance to do some wonderful travelling. Before we had children, my husband and I toured for 2 months around Canada and the US, sightseeing during the day and swing dancing at night (swing dancing is how we met). We cycled 557 kilometers with our kiddos when they were 6, 4, and 2. And we spent 9 months between 2018 and 2019 travelling in an RV all over the US and Canada. I'm interested in a variety of things, and my services on here reflect that. If you've ever heard the term "renaissance soul," "multipotentialite," or "scanner," that's me. I hope that you'll find a service that'll be useful to you among my offerings, and I look forward to trading with more
