  • Gator was the queen of shiiting in the tub. She did it like 6 times in a row. I just chalked it up to her being relaxed. Then one day she just stopped and hasn't done it since.

  • So far, three kids into this parenting adventure, I haven't had someone poop in the tub. I've had my Owen on the potty a couple times when he started straining before or during his bath, but that was just good timing.  My advice - either keep a po
