    Default Icky icky (TMI) - how to make potty not so messy?

    We've been doing EC (infant toileting) part-time for a while. I have sat with bub on the loo a few times a day since he was 6 weeks.

    Now he is 1yr old and getting too big for me to hold him on the loo, and he doesn't like the padded seat adapter thingie we bought for him, so I got him a potty, which we call his "little toilet". And he's happy to sit on that (most of the time). He sits on his little toilet when mummy sits on her big toilet.

    BUT!!!! And this is why I was hoping to avoid using a potty and go straight to the toilet instead...

    TMI!!!

    Solid poops drop out easily from his little toilet into the big toilet, but we had a real sticky/sloppy one today.... eeeeeeeeeeeeew.... took ages to clean up the poop off the plastic potty.

    So I was wondering if anyone has tried using a nappy liner IN THE POTTY? Would it help the clean up? Or make it easier for bub to hurl his business across the bathroom?

    THANK YOU!

    I used to lie a few pieces of toilet paper in the potty, then I'd just pick up the edges of the toilet paper and pop the poo in the toilet. Wipe and rinse out the potty and all good.

    I was gonna also say some toilet paper/paper towel/baby wipes. I do that at work for some of my residents as we bag the pan up so no cleaning the pan and easy to dispose of.
