My son, Luke, is obsessed with peeing and pooping. Whenever my husband or I do our business, Luke comes running for the show. I decided to get him a potty. I have heard that it is good to get them familiar with one, prior to training.
We made a special trip to Target. Zach and I belabored over the potty choices for far too long. Luke was over the moon. He could not stop saying “Pee!!! Poo!!!!”
At home, we pulled the potty out of the box and told Luke that he put his peeps and poops in it. He was extremely excited. He practiced “fake” peeing and pooping quite a bit. Then, with cries of “poo! poo!” he got Pooh Bear and started shoving him into the potty bowl.
He obviously got “poop” and “Pooh” messed up.
Since then he has happily sat on the potty about once a day. He has gone “peeps” a few times but no pooping. However, he always asks if he can put Pooh into the potty.
We tell him no.
