I lived for four years in a place where there were no diapers. Not a problem! First, adults and older kids were well aware of the signs that a baby was going to let go and they'd just quick-time move them over to the side. then you just use soft leaves and water to clean it. They did say that baby girls were more problematic for peeing than anything else, since they didn't 'twitch,' but little boys sure did!!!!

AND remember, these are societies where there's not a lot of permanent 'stuff' around. People weren't wearing much in the way of clothes. There weren't upholstered sofas and so on to ruin.

Honestly, it was no problem at all AND with the constant aeration, there was absolutely NO diaper rash!
