my kids uses a potty

I know you didn't expect to hear more about my child's poop for quite a while, but our half-hearted "it might be fun" purchase and use of a baby potty have lead to multiple successes. Per day. Yes, that's right. My kid poops in the potty daily, (for 2 whole days in a row!) and pees in it 2-3 times per day. 

I'm making no effort to catch him every time. I just make him sit on the potty when he wakes up and I read him a story. If he pees or poops, great. If not, we just had story time. No big deal. 

I figure that at least this way he isn't scared of it when it comes time. So we'll work on the "only here" aspect of potty training later, but for now he's got the "it's OK here" aspect of it down pat. He pees nearly every time we put him on it.

So, hooray for Tommy!


  1. i don't think we can be friends anymore. i'm sorry.

  2. I'm so glad I'm not the only "crazy" one. Once you try it, though. it doesn't seem crazy, does it? It's nice bonding time and completely low-pressure. That's how I feel about it, anyway. :)

  3. So I want to learn more about this. Do tell/ :) We just randomly bought a little potty on sale the other day too so maybe I should try putting it to use. :p

  4. Seriously? Please, tell me more! The sooner I can be done with diapers, the better! And if Tommy can do it, surely Ellie can, right? She's 15 months already.

  5. You go Tommy (and Tommy's Mommy)!

  6. I've heard that it's good for them to be out of their diapers for a little while too. Helps with diaper rash and that I guess, but a lot of people don't do it because of the fire hose.
