I opened a can of worms.

We have one bathroom. 2 adults - one of which is 28 weeks pregnant and a potty trained toddler. So DS seems to have to pee right when I am starting to. Last night, I told him to pee in the bathtub if he couldn't hold it. He did. Now, even when the toilette is free he is peeing in the bathtub. I keep telling him that is only for when mommy is using the toilette (he will and has just pee'd right along side daddy). I so can't wait to get a place with 2 bathrooms. Just a 1.5 bath would be great. I just want to potty without DS running up and crying potty the moment I get to the bathroom.

Re: I opened a can of worms.

We have the same bathroom problem and I so want to put a potty in the basement. Can you get a kids potty for those emergency times. Logically what you told him to do makes sense. At least he listened to you.

So been there! We bought a little potty for those times. Going in the tub is just sort of yucky unless you scrub it out each time after and rinse it. Who has time for that?

Our house has 3 bathrooms now! Lol! Our 1 bathroom rental ruined us!!

Re: I opened a can of worms.

My DS is like that, but with the outside. When we were PL'ing he loved it, and now he will actually go outside and pee off the porch even when we are inside and no one is in the in the bathroom. lol, He goes to school soon and I'm so afraid that he's just going to whip it out on recess.hahahaha I keep having the "Only pee outside if we are swimming" talk with him, but ya never know. *sigh*

Our bathroom is TINY. Our apartment is tiny. There is no room for a potty. We have tried.

We are going to try to find a new place in March. We wanted to stay here until we were ready to buy (a few years off still) but that just isn't logical. We are so cramped, it is ridiculous and we don't have a lot of stuff. I almost have a panic attack thinking of another kid running around and playing in here and there is no where for me to keep toys for him to play outside so he gets bored out there real quick, plus the yard has become over run with ants and the landlord says it isn't his responsibility.

Is it bad my main criteria for a new place is a yard for the kids and at least 2 toilets. I am fine with 2 bedrooms. The boys can share. Just give me more space for them to play and I am NOT going to have 4 people and 1 toilet.

I had the same problem years ago. I didn't think it was too gross since DH pees in the shower when he is taking a shower anyway! We have a 1/2 bath now so problem solved.

I couldn't do it. I am going crazy as it is. You must never get to potty in peace.

Re: I opened a can of worms.

We can pretty much reach out and touch our walls (and neighbors). The Bjorn is pretty small and it just fit in-between our toilet and pedestal sink (that was the only sink we could fit in).
