as far as size or height of the seat goes...<br>
HI,<br>
I really need some type of receptable for my 5 month old baby. Now I'm holding her over the toilet sitting behind, bending down (in order to see whether she pees or not) and it is hurting especially when I hold her for about 5 minutes...<br>
I notice more and more that she doesn't pee while she naps (is this normal for her age?) so when I take her to potty I know she will pee soon it is just the matter of when.<br>
Also Is EC store the only that carry EC potty seats for babies?<br>
TIA

Okay, I just read some reviews about BBLP and some people commented that the seat is not good for girls because the deflector is not removable and the children can get hurt when sitting down in a hurry..... Did anything like this happen to you?<br>
Now I'm looking for what kind of potty seat is good for younger babies...

The BabyBjorn Little Potty is the favorite for all ages and I have never heard that about it being uncomfortable for girls. The splashguard isn't that tall. perhaps the reviews were for the BabyBjorn trainer potty, which is for toddlers and has a removable bowl.<br><br>
For small babies, you can also get the potty bowl from theECStore.com, which has been dubbed the "hottie" or top hat potty, but I don't think it's self standing, so it's only good for pottying in arms where you can support the bowl.

We have EXACTLY the same age dds!!! We use the BBLP nearly 100% of the time. We do have a BB Potty Chair in the bathroom, so (TMI) when I go, she sits on that and goes too. It's taller so I don't have to totally fold in half while I'm on the toilet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I've found that the BBLP is a reliable, splash-proof (for girls at least, never used it with a boy), potty that works really well for us. She can sit alone on it now, and in combo with a potty turtleneck will happily potty at night as well. I think maybe that review you read might have been for something else, b/c no potty for little ones that is freestanding has a removable deflector that I'm aware of.<br><br>
Anyway, I'd just get a BBLP. Fairly inexpensive, functional and very cute IMO>. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Welcome to the fun!!!

oh, and also, my dd doesn't pee during naps either and hasn't for around 2 months that we're aware of. she generally doesn't pee at night either, but I generally take her to the potty once a night (night being 9pm to 8am) and sometimes she'll go, sometimes not. We haven't held her to potty in around 3 months b/c we just got 2 BBLPs... I don't know how big yours is, but many, I couldn't do that with my nearly 17lber!!!<br><br>
Amazon.com carries the BBLP and a few other types, but I'd *personally* rather buy it from the EC store. Honestly, Amazon will be ok w/o my business. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> The EC store is run, I think, by a mama on here!

I got the same one, I thinks its Bebe Jou or something like that, I actually bought 3 of them and then found another at a thrift shop along w/ a BBLP. I have one in the car, one in the bathroom, one in the living room and in our bedroom. The last one gets used the most.

Do you remember the price of it? I'll have to check it out. Do anyone knows if BBLP is sold in any local store? I want to see it in person first before buying it..<br><br><br><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

How old is your little one? Mine is about 15 lbs and can't sit up quite by herself yet, but she tries to...<br>
What is TMI?<br>
I was reading the reviews about BBLP/BBPC and they were talking about the not removable deflector. They were saying their kids were getting hurt when rushing to sit on it and can't remove the deflector. I'll try to add the link to the reviews if I don't get called to my daughter...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
How do you EC at night? I posted another Q about this but since your daughter is the same age as mine, I'm curious...<br><br><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

too much information.<br><br><br>
I also have a Bebe Jou potty from target and it is magnificent! My 11 wk old DS is a sideways pee-er so we needed a solution, it was making such a mess in the bathroom! He seems to love sitting on it, but maybe that's because every man loves to sit on the toilet and watch tv at the same time!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Mine is around 16.5 lbs, so they're pretty close in size as well. I guess I could see how the deflector could get in the way. Honestly though, I'd rather them learn to get on the potty slowly than deal with not having a deflector or one that can be moved (and thus broken)... even for little girls. It's only been recently that she's been consistently peeing down, rather than all sorts of directions, depending on how she's sitting.<br><br>
I'll have to go check to see if I responded to your night EC post. I'm lovin' it!!! I'm so glad we did it and are still doing it. Lately we've had a lot more nighttime success than daytime success!!

Now that the BabyBjorn Little Potty is no longer available, my favorite elimination communication potty is the BabyBjorn Smart Potty. I like that the insert can be removed and used as a top hat potty. My son used the Smart Potty from the time he started EC as a baby, and is still using it now at three-years-old.

For those of you looking for more current recommendations, I have a list of the best EC potties for home, travel, and newborns on my EC Peesy blog.
