I oscillate. The noise definitely disturbs my kid, but at the same time, being pregnant, I pee a million times at night and think it's gross to use the toilet that much and not flush.

We don't flush at all unless it's something other than just pee, or it's been about 24 hours and the bowl is getting full

Yes and no. No, b/c if I've only peed once, I don't flush it. However, being a 28 week pregnant woman, I pee multiple times per night. Eventually, it needs to be flushed even though it's only pee.

I do flush the toilet on the first floor after each time b/c I wouldn't want someone dropping by unexpectedly and using a toilet with my pee in it. I don't flush the upstairs bathrooms every time, but I usually only use the master bathroom upstairs.

I recently changed my username, but I still say "Hello" to all those who know me in real life! Hi P, S, T and K!

During the night, I don't flush. Dh does, and it drives me crazy. LOL

We recently moved and the new house is in the country, we're now a "If it's yellow, let it mellow" household. If someone flushes in the middle of the night, they better have a darn good excuse because the pump starts everytime someone flushes and it's obviously very close to my bedroom because it's so loud I can't hear my TV clearly during the day when it goes, so it wakes me up for sure. No way could I handle dealing with that all night. We generally don't flush after pee except for when the TP starts to pile up and we don't want to plug the pipes, or after poos or that time of the month for me.

I don't flush at night. Not because the toilet is loud but because I pee a thousand times at night and it wastes water.

I'm so surprised at the number of non-flushers!

I flush every. single. time. I am just waaaaaayyy too grossed out by the thought of using a used toilet. No no no no no no no.

I flush every single time. My dh won't flush in the middle of the night. Even if he's gone # 2. That grosses me out beyond belief. So now he has a system. He will put a strip of toilet paper over the closed toilet seat to indicate that the toilet needs to be flushed by the first person in the morning who uses that particular toilet (we have three in the house). I still hate that.

I don't flush reliably for pee, day or night. I grew up flushing whenever I used the toilet, but then became aware of the water conservation aspects, and try not to flush for just pee these days. I've never managed to fully break the habit, though. It makes no difference whether it's day or night, though. Nobody in this family is likely to be woken up that easily...maybe dh, but he'd fall right back asleep.
