Woman Says Babies Must Consent Before A Diaper Change

While appearing on an Australian news program, Deanne Carson, a sexuality educator according to her Twitter bio, said that we need to establish the whole idea of consent at an early age. 

I totally agree with that, but it was her next statement that was a little bit out of left field. 

She said that parents should get a babies consent before changing their diaper. 

She said in the interview:

Of course the baby is not going to respond, 'Yes mum, that's awesome. I'd love to have my nappy changed'. But if you leave a space, and wait for body language and wait to make eye contact, then you're letting that child know that their response matters.

I have an almost two-year-old and when I ask him if he wants to get a new diaper on it is followed by a loud no and running away. You know, like that Skelator meme that's been going around. 

Good luck to her and anyone else who is going to try this out.
