Re: Newish research on counting diapers
right, jenna, and i very much don't want unnecessary supplementation and all its associated problems either. and i really liked being able to tell parents to count pees and reassure them. but what the research is saying is that counting pees is actually not a particularly good way of assessing it - and as meg was saying above about missing pees, with a poop or with superabsorbent diapers or whatever, pee turns out NOT to be something they can easily count every day. it's important to me that i actually give *accurate* advice as well as *easy to follow* advice.
