The New Potty!
So, this cute little thing arrived at our house yesterday!
It is a Pourty Potty. I know, I know, R is just 7 months old. And we are in no way pushing "potty training" nor are we striving for hard-core "elimination communication". But we do think there are things we can do to hopefully help potty training happen a little earlier than has become the average in this country (37 months of age!). So, when we notice that R is showing the signs of pooping, he will sit on the potty, either with or without a diaper. If he wakes up from a nap and is still dry, he will sit on the potty for a bit. If we catch some pee or poop in it, GREAT! Saves me washing a diaper. If not, hey, the potty will be a normal thing to him when he is big enough to get serious about potty training and hopefully it won't be intimidating. I will let you know how it goes!
