Leigha and the Triplets

Your opinion counts!

OK, I am no where near ready to start potty training, but I want to get some opinions now. Leigha was extermely easy to potty train. Before she was two she was waking up with dry diapers. That's when I knew it was time. I got her a potty seat. She pooped in the potty first. Anytime we couldn't find Leigha, we would look under the diningroom table. That's where she would hide to go. The first time she heard the trinkle into the seat, she knew that was what she was supposed to do. She NEVER had accidents. She always told me when she had to go. Leigha continued to stay dry at night. It was amazing! The worst part was when we were out and we would have to find a public bathroom, she would see the toilet and change her mind, and they I would have to make her use it (we carried a fold up potty seat that goes on the toilet).

Leigha is a girl. I have no idea what the heck you do with a boy, much less THREE! My friend, Laura, sent me a link to a plastic urinal. I just busted up laughing! Then I started adding up the negative points, then the positive points, and then just sitting in limbo. If she gets it and loves it, I am going to kick myself in the butt if I missed out! If we both get it, and hate it, I can blame her. The top has a water resevoir that they push down to "flush" the urine away. The bottom has the removal container that all potty chairs have. In addition to the urinal, there is the padded seat cover that I will have to purchase anyway (Leigha's was trashed!).

So moms of boys, let me know what you think. Just remember, I have three of them to train at the same time! This is $35 at Costco!


I can't wait to see the google ads I get from this one!

That is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen! Like you can't teach them to aim? It's hysterical!!! Okay, I would say do not even THINK about potty learning yet. They aren't ready yet! Unless you're going to do naked potty training in the backyard like I did. That might work.

Okay, Greg just walked in and thought the urinal was totally cool!!! We'll probably have one now tomorrow! THANKS!

I am in the middle of Potty Training and I have to say that you might want to wait a little longer before you start! It is has been a very exhausting week for me. I do love the Urinal but I have GGB and I am sure the girls would want to use it too! :O)

I've been "eyeing" this on cottonbabies and wondering the same thing - good to see you checking it out. I'll be watching to see your reviews should you try it out! I liked the adjustable height thing - but thought the wall mount was a bit excessive.
