This is sort of a toddler issue, but I wanted to post here since we EC (have from birth)<br>
Ds is 14 months and just started lifting up the potty top and splashing his hands in. Sometimes he does it when he needs to go, but it's become one of those tempting things that he really wants, probably because I usually say no and make a big fuss when I catch him. I try not to, but it just really grosses me out.<br><br>
For ECing we always hold him over the big potty, and he has become very interested in what goes in there, etc.<br><br>
So, anyone BTDT...how did you handle it? I'm trying to avoid one of those conventional potty locks. He shouldn't feel as if it is off-limits to him, for the appropriate use anyway. I do set out his bblp if he wants to use it, but he doesn't walk yet and can't quite nagivgate getting on that independently.<br><br>
Ideas???Thanks<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

subbing...<br>
DS does the same thing, but only after he's pooped in the toilet! He loves to sit there, poop and then crane his head/body around to see his good work! But it's a bit gross when he tries to put his hand in after the fact. I'd love to hear how other mamas deal with this...

Yes, please-more feedback on this!<br><br>
That's part of it for my ds, is the interest in what he has made in there, which would seem to be a totally natural part of EC for a toddler....
