What are (or have been) some of your favorite ways that your baby has signaled that they needed to use the potty?


My daughter has just started crawling and goes over to her little potty and rocks it back and forth. It makes this grating sound on the floor and about 90% of the time she is telling us she has to go! We love this new development!


Also, starting around 2 and a half months when she had to go, she would get this look on her face that we dubbed "pee-pee eyes" where her eyes would get REALLY big, accompanied by a surprised look on her face. We really liked that signal too. Maybe the name we came up with even more!

My almost 7 week year old will stop nursing and smile at me when he needs to go.


When my middle child was around a year, he'd tap his diaper to tell me he had to go.


As soon as my eldest could roll, she'd sleep with her butt in the air when she had to pee during the night.
