This is all of a sudden working (tonight anyway, lol). He loves standing in the tub and looking down while he pees. I have to wipe his little toes off every time but at least he is cueing again and he's having fun peeing. Maybe soon he will start writing his name.
Does anyone use that urinal type thing that hangs on the toilet for their ds? I might get one when ds gets older so he can stand up to pee like dad.

Hmm, I've not seen that one but I have seen one online at walmart that I was going to get when he was bigger. Right now he would just knock it down or try to climb in it, or keep flushing it.
I have been standing DS on the edge of the sink, maybe I will try the tub...wait if I do that he might get mad if we don't take a bath.

My ds loves to pee in the tub right now too! He is nine and a half months old. We haven't done it since he was little but during his potty strike I thought I would try it and it works! Then we wave bye bye to the pee...down the drain... and it's awesome cause it doesn't get everywhere, excpet the occasional toe.

Today he pooped standing up in the tub... Ummm.. I'd rather it go in the toilet but at least it's not all over his bum.

We just started EC'ing and for the first week, the only way he would pee and poop was standing in the tub. When he pooped, I would just catch it with some toilet paper. Gross, but that's all I could do. I'd rather catch it than clean up a poopy diaper. The only problem, he wouldn't go anywhere else and I don't think my friends would appreciate my son peeing in their tub let alone pooping :blush: I've been trying this week to get him to go on the potty and we've had a little success. He still refuses to sit on it, but he will pee in it standing. Now to get him to poop on the potty...

I figure it is a phase and he'll decide when he wants to poop on the potty again. Like you said, way better cleaning poop in the tub than poop on the baby.
