Curb Your Infant Signs


There is a movement to raise children diaper free with bowls distributed around the house and training to do the business between parked cars.

Be the first in your neighborhood to post "Curb Your Infant" signs. I will make them at cost for you if interested as a public service.

We make pet owners use poop scoops. If they want to be slovenly, they can clean up the mess.

Take your kids home -
try and teach them how to use in-door plumbing!

But - that's not natural!?!
What?!?

Or - let them do their "work" anywhere they want -
maybe they'll contaminate, the water-supply!
That's "natural"!?!

I've seen a lot of stupid things while raising a kid but this one has to take the cake. I cannot believe that people would actually do this.

Hmm. The only thing I can come up with is that these mothers suffered brain damage during labor and delivery.

What about during the night, when the baby and parents are sleeping? There's no way that the parents could possibly get the baby to the potty every time. So.... the baby gets to sleep in wet, stinky clothes on a wet sheet all night? Anyway, that adds up to a lot more loads of laundry than simple diapers.

"I'm saving the environment!".... Oh, for cryin' out loud, stop it !!! Work on getting some common sense, then worry about the planet.

They think it's alright to let the kids 'p' & 'poo' between vehicles, but they'd call the police if they walked up to their car and found a grown man doing the same thing.

Here are some Tootsie Rolls for you Rossi...

Some of you know those Hummer-Sized baby strollers that take up an entire sidewalk get my blood boiling. Nothing against kids but not all trained to poop in the street! Draft Sign....

I'm with you! the article mentions letting baby "go" in the park or behind a tree there, oh great, and then other people using the park for a picnic or wanting to sit down and lean against a tree to read or something have to watch out for baby landmine piles around trees.
We have sewers and septic systems because of the health hazzards with what's in human wastes- ecoli and others come to mind, and you can't legally crap on the ground in a public park or in the street, or dump your RV holding tank there.

If they want to "save" the environment, doing away with diapers is as useless as changing a 75 watt bulb to a 60 watt bulb, the way to save the environment and the planet is deciding to do the right thing and NOT have that 3rd or 4th baby in the first place!

The diapers a baby would use is miniscule compared to all the resources a person uses over a lifetime, not to mention adding one more car to the road, another house to the grid/water/sewer etc, another weekly trash pile to the landfill and the list goes on.
The USA had 75 million people in 1900, 150 million just 50 years later, and now it's over 308 million and that number simply cannot continue expanding indefinitely in a finite environment with finite resources, and a finite amount of land.

They should ADOPT one of the 250,000 kids in foster care in the USA.
