Re: Potty training at 9 mos.-12 mos.?

Betty-great info! I tried giving dd a rubber ducky today when she was on the BBLP and it worked! I was able to get her to pee twice!

That's super!

Just think how much easier toilet-training will be when you've laid the groundwork by helping dd learn to feel when she goes, and be able to release her bladder and bowel over a receptacle instead of in a diaper...

One more tip - if your potty is on a hard surface (not your lap), put water at the bottom, so catching poops will be more pleasant (ie. less smelly)!

Re: Potty training at 9 mos.-12 mos.?

I start ECing my son around 10 mos. (he's now 13.5 months). We catch a lot of poos but only pees once in a while. I'm also trying to get serious about pottying him. He is okay sitting on the toilet but waits till he is off to pee on the floor.

My husband hates that. I've looked at the Peter Potty online but would like to see it in person. My son loves to pee standing up.

Great post.

Re: Potty training at 9 mos.-12 mos.?

What is Peter Potty? Is it meant to get boys to pee standing up?

I've never done a link on here before - hopefully it will work.

Yes - it is to teach boys to stand. I'm not sure if it will be too tall for a year old or not.

Do you think it would work if you offered an incentive for peeing on the potty instead of on the floor after coming off it. A treat, or star etc?

I'm a part-time dog trainer so I've thought about clicker training him to the potty. Clicker training is where a noise or signal (ie thumbs up) means he did a good job and will earn a reward for it.

I've also thought about offering him a potty sign when he is going to the bathroom (even on the floor) and thinking I could transfer that to the potty and get him to go.

I need to focus on 1 thing because I haven't been consistent with him. I'm so the problem. I fully believe his is potty trainable at 14 months.

Re: Potty training at 9 mos.-12 mos.?

I have in the past "caught" Ivan when he needs to poop but I always held him over the toilet. He was grunting like he does so I decided to try the potty chair. He said down and we clapped. Then he got up then sat back down and we clapped. Got up a third time and we clapped and he pooped.

YEAH - Melanie

Re: Potty training at 9 mos.-12 mos.?

Wow, this is all so interesting! My dd just turned 9 months and I think she's ready to start PL'ing or at least getting comfortable with the potty and bathroom. When she's diaperless she goes into the bathroom to pee on the floor, so I definitely think she gets it.


How would I go about starting this?

Re: Potty training at 9 mos.-12 mos.?

I found the easiest pee to "catch" is after a nap or sleep. Take them to the potty and hold them over the potty or the sink. Some people are successfully making a "psss" sound or running water. Running water backfired on me. Anytime someone would wash their hands my son would pee.

I also found pooping to be much easier to "catch". Most children have pretty obvious signs or faces when they are pooping.
