Toddler Twins Bath Time and Potty Training

Squish and Stretch are almost 19mo now. Squish started announcing his pee/poo diaper at 17m. We bought two of these Bjorn “shortie potties”. BABYBJORN Smart Potty Review

I wish I’d bought these Bjorn potties instead because of the higher back and I think they are a little taller. I think it would make it a little easier to sit on. The “shortie potty” is VERY SHORT. My two are very  young to be potty training and these are kinda too short for them!BABYBJORN Potty Chair Review

I’m buying one of these to keep in the car. Oh yeah. That’s right, my kids will be pottying in the back of my super cool minivan. Think about it, if you are on your own, driving any decent distance and you here “PEE Momma” from the backseat- you gotta do what you gotta do. NO WAY am I taking all 3 kiddos into a gas station or fast food bathroom without an assistant!61XHxDLrrAL._SL1000_

Three Day Potty Training starts after the holidays, in early January. This is the highly recommended way to potty train multiples. It isn’t written for multiples but all my MoM (Moms of Multiples) friends love it.

Thanks to their new love of the potty, and since bath time provides lots of naked time (aka easy access to the potties)- this is what bath time looks like these days.

6:20 boys sit on their potties as tub fills
6:21 catch them as they attempt to escape the bathroom
6:22 place them in tub
6:25 Stretch is told to keep the water in the bathtub
6:28 Squish says PEE and he is pulled and placed on his potty
6:29 Stretch says PEE and he is pulled and placed on his potty
6:30 they both stand up and are replaced back in the tub
6:36 Stretch is told to keep the water in the bathtub
6:38 Squish is told not to hit his brother with the rubber shark
6:39 Squish says PEE and he is pulled and placed on his potty
6:40 Stretch says PEE and he is pulled and placed on his potty
6:41 they both stand up and are replaced back in the tub
6:46 Stretch is told to keep the water in the bathtub
6:48 Stretch styles Squish’s hair
6:51 Stretch is told not to pull Squish’s hair
6:52 Squish says PEE and he is pulled and placed on his potty
6:53 Stretch says PEE and he is pulled and placed on his potty
6:54 they both stand up and are replaced back in the tub
6:59 Stretch is told to keep the water in the bathtub
7:05 Squish washes Stretch’s face
7:06 Squish is told to quit holding Stretch’s face under water
7:08 Stretch is told to keep the water in the bathtub
7:09 Mommy starts singing the clean up song
7:12 Mommy cleans up all the bath toys
7:13 Boys are removed from the bath tub and *poncho towels placed on
7:14 Squish says PEE, his towel is removed and he sits on his potty
7:15 Stretch says PEE, his towel is removed and he sits on his potty
7:16 Stretch pees on the potty and gets a treat
7:17 Squish won’t quit screaming TREAT! despite the logical argument from his Mother about the direct correlation of pee/poo to treats

Repeat 7 nights a week

*Poncho towels are pretty much the coolest thing for your toddler. It’s better than a regular wrap around, hooded towel because you slip in on over the the head. There is a hold in the middle and is requires an adult to remove it. Really handy when they run in opposite directions before you can get a diaper on them. You can find them on Amazon or if you are feeling crafty – here is a Poncho Towel Tutorial
