mummy is always tired

The Bath Poo

on June 9, 2015

Our youngest decided to potty train herself a few weeks ago. No doubt she was fed up of hiding in corners or behind curtains to secretly squeeze one out and then deny it despite the trail of smell quite literally following her around.

I proudly announced to a fellow mummy how our youngest had the wees sorted in just a couple of days. Clearly that was a mistake because less than three hours later, the God of anti smugness struck and the result was nothing short of a pint of wee over the dining room chair – a wooden chair no less. Who knew aged pine chairs would be so absorbent – like a sponge to water. As such I am not saying which chair it was because what house guests don’t know won’t hurt them.

So…apart from that, there have been few other liquid accidents. However, she’s been reluctant to extend her potty abilities to include solid packages. She’s been leaving it and leaving it, only to get to day three absolutely bursting – quite literally and no amount of raisins or dried dates could flush through the blockage.

No. Silly me. Clearly what was needed was a lovely, relaxing bath. Preferably when your sister is in it as well and when it’s only mummy on bath duty. And so here we were, both girls splashing around when our youngest suddenly jumps up clutching her bottom screaming ‘I need a poo!’

Quick! I’m panicking now, the thought of it scooping up out the bath doesn’t appeal. My hands? No judging by what’s rapidly making an appearance they won’t be big enough. Ok what’s next, the toy boat? No, too many nooks and crannies to clean out after. I’ve got it – one of the stacking cups, number one, the largest of them all thank goodness – shame it wasn’t the number two, but that would have been too perfect.

    I recently started reading your blog, again a nice post!

    So many parents believe that if they routinely place their child on the potty seat, they will soon learn how to use it on their own.This one could not be further from the truth and in fact, confuses the child further.

    Sometimes they will go in their potty if they happen to be sitting on it… but they will also still go in their diaper if they happen to be in it. This gives your child no clear direction on what to do when they have to use the potty.

    At last i purchased a book, which taught me the real secrets on how to potty train our child in just 3 short day. I should say it was amazing, it worked and now i’m free of all hassles of changing the diapers. They also have a free video presentation on how to potty train your child.
