Baby Dilema

How do you keep a baby from pooping in the tub?!
It's become part of Jane's nightly ritual to poop in the tub. I try to keep on eye out to catch it before it happens, but somehow she is able to sneak and do it while I can't prevent it. Last night I decided that since I can't stop her maybe I can get her to go in the potty. So, I watched for the signs, and each time she was about to go I picked her up and set her on the potty. Of course she was freaked out and freezing while sitting wet on the toilet. She didn't know why she was dangling over a hole while dripping wet. So each time I set her on the toilet she wouldn't do anything. Why putting her on the toilet 3 times, I noticed that it was kind of grimey. I put her back in the tub and started to drain it and remove all toys just in case a poop came, and then started to clean the toilet. (I'm a chronic multi-tasker...sometimes to my own demise...) As soon as I started to clean the toilet I heard the little grunts and turned around to see her watching me while doing the biggest doodie of her life in the almost-empty tub. AHHH!!! Cleaning it up was disgusting and led to me clogging the toilet up pretty good. So, the first night of night pop potty training didn't work out how I'd hoped, but I'm going to keep trying. Meanwhile, how do you keep a baby from pooping in the tub?

Don't put them in the tub.
Seriously, though, for what it is worth, it is worse when you have multiple kids in the tub and one of them poops in there. It really is not as bad as it could be. I would change bath times or wait until after she poops if she is doing this regularly. Oh the joys.

That's really funny how she watches you while she's going.

That is so adorable! I love that little baby! That reminds me of the time that I was convinced that you wanted to be potty trained (when you were nine months old)! Memories...:-)

Desperate times call for...
actually, do you want to hear a disgusting story? Stop now if not. Sarah was taking a bath at that age and some soap fell in and made the water all opague. When I got her out I started fishing in the water for the soap. I thought I got it in my hand, but when I lifted it out of the water... surprise! It wasn't soap.
What's worse, jameson was in the tub too. Oh well, they are both still alive and ignorant of this little tale, so, shhh!
