Go Diaper Free

IMG_3851[1]It was pleasantly shocking news to learn that our granddaughter was potty trained by her parents in both #1 and #2 within five months of age. Wow, that’s great news! Now getting through those messy early years can be shorten, not to mention saving of a lot of time, money, and the environment.

Over the next year sign language was taught, now when she wants to go to the restroom she gives the sign, pretty soon she will be able to ask verbally. Last week when coming home from Waikoloa, Hawaii, about an hour and a half drive, she signed twice, so dad pulled over the car to the side of the road and she did her thing. I swear that’s the best thing since the mobile phone.


Amy and I own a grocery and convenience store in Naalehu and want to help our customers reduce the use of diapers. Yes reduce diaper sales! Our business mission is to help lift our community and associates. So if we can help babies GoDiaperFree, we’re heading in the right direction. To help, the store will sponsor and host a GoDiaperFree class at the store.  An optional book GDF 0-18m book will be available to purchase onsite at the class. To make reservations go to Wiki-Wiki Mart’s Facebook page and register in Events.

“If you wish to begin helping your baby use the toilet instead of diapering full-time, and you want to learn how to do elimination communication but don’t know where to begin, this book is for you” Andrea Olson, Founder, Go Diaper Free

We hope to see you there.
