Re: Potty training a boy

I am going through potty training my 2.5 year old now. I wish he would still sit to pee, but he insists on standing. When he goes he usually just flops his penis over the toilet instead of trying to hold it and aim. I've tried everything to get him to attempted to aim or to sit but he won't. This leads to lots of wet clothes during the day. I hope for my sanity he gets it soon.

Don't encourage it! Even if you can't get him to use a stool and sit himelf on the potty, lifting him onto it is easier than trying to figure out where he managed to spray pee. Seriously. It's everywhere.

Re: Potty training a boy

We had a Peter potty so he learned how to pee standing up first. Maybe you could get him one of these?

Ew, yeah I didn't think about the pee everywhere aspect of him standing! I guess we'll try to find a stool he'll use to get himself on the toilet. I can't see myself easily nursing a newborn while simultaneously trying to lift him on the toilet but I guess I'll have to get better at multi-tasking quickly after the newbie gets here!

Stepstool. With a stepstool, even my tiny DD could get up on the toilet all by herself since she was 23 months old. (I had to prop the stepstool up with a books for a couple extra inches of height.)

Store ths tip away for when your son is ready to pee standing up. As a kid, DH was trained by aiming at a square of toilet paper in the toilet water. MIL would wad up a square of toilet paper and made accurate peeing a game.

Re: Potty training a boy

Also, honestly, with a newborn? I'd just get him a small, portable potty to keep wherever you and the baby will be. I found it easier just to gate the toddler in the room where I was trapped and nursing the baby, along with a potty.

I guess I just got lucky with my one boy. He's only gotten pee outside of the toilet on a few occasions and none recently.

Mine didn't start to stand until close to 4. They also climbed up on to the seat themselves with a step stool. I wouldn't push and just let him decide on his own. Cleaning up pee all of the toilet and floor is not worth it.

I don't know, but I had a dream the other day that DS1 went into the bathroom and randomly peed standing up, perfectly, without anyone showing him how prior to that.

He absolutely refuses to use his little potty. Which is funny, since he absolutely refused to use the toilet when he was first learning. But he'd rather pee himself than use that little potty now!

Ironically, here I am swearing he won't use a stool and guess who up and started using a stool today? So there we go!
