What do you do when you gotta go?

Go to the bathroom that is, and you have small children in the house, do they follow you, or do you just go and let them stay in the other room?

  • I have a 3yo. When he was crawling, he used to come with me and sit on the floor by the door of our small bathroom while I did my thing. At two, I would put him in front of the tv with a cartoon on, and do my business by myself. Now he's 3, potty trained, and insists on watching sometimes (I think this is just a "mumma you're not paying attention to me so I'm going to pay attention to you" thing..) so occasionally he'll come and sit, and when I'm done, he'll go potty too.

  • I always leave the door open. It's just me and my 3yo at home during the day. Sometimes he follows me in, sometimes not.

  • My kids just followed me around. Happily, it's an easy way to demonstrate potty training.

  • I would say if they are your children just leave the door open and go fast

  • I have always let my littles follow me along. I think it is good preparation for when they are ready to transition out of diapers.
