    There’s a wealth of relevant information and pertinent areas in discussion in this post.

    Firstly, I’m a proxy believer (via my sister) in the Elimination Communication method of ‘toilet training’, which teaches that kids are born with the ability to tell their carers when they need to poo and wee and that nappies are a hindrance to their toilet learning. Hence the Chinese and their open trousers (and btw, if you scroll in just the right way it looks like the baby in the picture provided has a salami for a bum).

    Secondly, I have heard that every adult should have one BEEP a day, a BEEP in this case being a highly user-friendly acronym standing for Big Easy Enjoyable Poo. Who are these people who, as you so disturbingly report, need only poo a couple of times a week?

    And lastly, I read in an advertisement for probiotics that an adult with poor digestive health can have up to 8kg of unprocessed faecal matter in their system. Refer back to my second point.

    My family also use Elimination Communication as the first commentor explained so i’ve seen from a Mum’s point of view that toiletting doesn’t need to be stressful or fearful (and an open door policy for children goes a long way in terms of teaching them the basics of going to the toilet, wiping, etc.

    I’m also a registered nurse, and I learnt during my training that the “normal” amount of times humans poo a week is 3-21 times… so there are those like me who go once every 2-3 days, and other people who i can’t imagine what their lives must look like who go 3 times a day!

    Aren’t we just a many and varied species!

  3. Wow, I’d never heard of Eliminination Communication before – that’s really fascinating. I’ll have to read up some more about it.
    Also, the open door thing – that’s so bloody sensible. We have a really unnatural fear of toiletting in our society, for adults as well as children, which doesn’t make any sense to me. Thanks to youse guys for commenting; you’ve given me some good research topics!

    I have done “poo psychology” in my own family. I have six and the kids with dairy sensitivities and who were unpredictable as babies(as far as ec goes) are the ones with complex and varied problems. they are high needs and intense. I’ve noticed that the kids that have easier and more solid eliminations and have them like clockwork are more easy going. My suggestion is- probiotics during pregnancy and throughout life. Good gut flora=happy life.
    Coincedently I sell kaidangku in my etsy shop.
