How could she not know how to dispose of a dirty diaper? Wouldn't she have at least learned from DJ?

Apparently, as I have sort have known for a while, you are supposed to dump the poop from a disposable diaper (baby or adult) in the toilet because the waste can seep from the landfill into the ground water, accumulate and cause contamination. This is of course a good and right thing to do, but I have a couple questions.

First, how would you get poop that doesn't result from solid food (especially if it results from formula) into the toilet? With cloth diapers, you can spray them, but you of course can't do that with a disposable.

Also, if your changing area isn't near your bathroom, how are you supposed to leave the baby on the changing table, go into the bathroom, flush the poop, come back, finish changing the child, and dispose of the rolled-up diaper now containing the wipes?

I know in Toronto and other cities that use them you can throw poopy diapers in the green bin but how are you supposed to safely dispose of poo otherwise?

A lot of bed-wetting goes back to the fact the child was never properly toilet trained at night. Diapers taught the child she could just let go in her diaper whenever she didn't feel like holding it, and now the brain is telling the bladder the same thing when the child is asleep. The child subconsciously knows she has a diaper on, so the brain tells the bladder, "Go ahead, the diaper will take care of it." If, however, the child wets and there is no diaper, she will wake up to the unpleasant feeling of wet pajamas and a wet bed. This will train the brain to tell the bladder to hold it until the brain can wake the child up and get her body on the toilet.

A lot of the problems with stress incontinence in women go back to toilet training. Most parents mess up potty training by making the child go on a schedule, even when the child insists she doesn't need to pee. Thus, the child never develops proper awareness of when she needs to void, and into adulthood will not realize her body is sending her the signal, laugh, cough or whatever, and have an accident. Either that or she'll be aware of needing to pee but not be comfortable with urination as a part of her life. Thus, she will hold it, laugh, sneeze, or whatever, and have an accident.

As far as urge incontinence: Other parents mess up toilet training by insisting the child use the potty frequently _and telling the child that, if she has an accident, it will be horrifically embarrassing for the child and terribly inconvenient for the parent. Thus, the fear of wetting her pants is instilled and the child grows into a woman who gets seized by the urge to pee every half an hour, feeling like she's going to burst if she doesn't get to the bathroom and often not making it, all out of fear of not getting her bum on the toilet in time as opposed to an actual large quantity of urine in the bladder.

Stress and urge incontinence can show up in men for these reasons, too, but boys tend to learn how to relax and have fun with their stream, if you catch my drift, whereas girls are more likely to be taught to be ladylike and that urine only goes in a toilet.

Disability is a topic which has only entered mainstream society in the last few years. It is a very misunderstood and mystifying thing for most people, disabled and able-bodied alike. Among one of the more mystifying aspects of certain disabilities includes the act of relieving oneself. This post presents some videos that should shed more light on these matters.

First, Luda Gogolushko, a young woman in a wheelchair, talks about wearing diapers in situations where she might not find an accessible bathroom. Follow her links for other videos on this topic.

Next, Andrea Lausell, a young woman with spina bifida, talks about the bladder leakage that comes that comes with this disability. Also follow her links for similar videos.
