It does seem that some people co-sleep. But that isn't something I am interested in. Nor essential to how it works
Most people also use disposables or mcn's at least part of the time - when out and at night.
Pretty much you try to notice "cues" that your baby needs to go to the toilet and take them to the bathroom where you hold them in a squat like position over the toilet/sink/potty and make a noise to give them a cue. Most people have said a "sssss" apparently there is a "window" of being able to "train" from birth and then this is just the norm and not as difficult as toilet training at 2 or 3years old.
There are LOTS of accidents but if you have the time to notice the cues it works on babies as young as 6 months and most are fully day trained by 12months and night trained by 15-18months.
Try to take what you read as a guide, much of it is written in a very hippy/culty/bond with you child "properly" kind of way. But as I said if you start from birth, they won't know any different and surely they will be out of nappies quicker...
I've only just started reading up so interested in what you have to say.
And in regards to a child lying in their own poop over night, what happens with nappies?.... Not being sarcastic I haven't done the baby thing yet!!

Most newborns either feed a lot overnight, and you change them when you feed them - or they learn not to poo overnight really quickly.

tribal baby is an awesome website!!! Have a good read through it all, it is really interesting.
Not for me, esp with twins, as although it would save me a stack of washing, I had enough trouble keeping food on the table etc without watching and learning their toiletting signs when newborns.
On the other hand....almost wish I'd had tried it with DS1 - as at just turned 3 he is having major TT set-backs and it is driving me batty!!

I already had too much washing and carpet and furniture cleaning with a happy chucker so I can't even begin to imagine the mess you would end up with doing that.

I know a member here does it or did it, Demeter, I know she had a blog about it, but cannot find it.
I did find a blog from another mum though... really interesting.
I loved the idea of it, and wanted to do it with my first son, but was really crap at reading his cues, I gave up rather quickly!!
I think in a culture like Africa it would probably be a lot easier as everyone is doing it (well, YK) and society accepts it, the climate is suited to it etc etc.
Anyway. It's a great thing, I just failed miserably at it!!

I dunno I think if people were living in wee and poo they wouldn't do it? I suspect it's not as yicky as it sounds from the outside.
I don't know though as the only mum I know who did it uses both nappies and potty since birh - just in case.

I read an interesting chapter on it in Sarah Buckley's book "Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering", if you want more info. All the best!
