My guy is not interested in the potty. He has had a potty that goes on the toilet for more than a year now. He sat on it once in a while, but recently he seems a little fearful of it, backing away and refusing to go near it.
At Christmas, my little one received Cailou DVDs and books, one of which showed Cailou using a freestanding potty. Since then, E has asked me for a ‘potty like Cailou’s.’
I was really hoping to avoid the potty like Cailou’s as I think it will send my weak stomach over the edge.
However, for the ease of toilet training I thought I would buy a potty like Cailou’s with the added bonus of my guy being able to go when the urge strikes.
He understands what to use it for. ‘Baby Goshua’, my Cabbage Patch Kid, pees and poops on the potty all day long, and E even knows you take the bowl out, run it to the bathroom, dump it and flush the toilet.
However, he isn’t interested in using it himself.
Instead, there are other ways to feel you got your money’s worth from a potty:
