Warning: gross topic ahead...
We are planning to start toilet training soon. I think the potty will be less scary for DS initially.
I am grossed out by the thought of poos in the potty though. Is there a good way to clean the potty out afterwards? Or is it just dump what you can, then wipe out?

I just emptied in the loo and rinsed out in the shower. Then wiped with antibacterial wipes

I just rinse it in the sink and wipe it with a baby wipe, then give it a proper wipe down at the end of each day.

I never had any splash issues, just turn the water on gently to rinse out any bits or marks, then splash some disinfectant in it or wipe with an antibacterial wipe. No need to blast it too strongly with water.

Yeah it's all pretty gross, TMI but dd1 does mammoth solid turds that reek when in the open and leave awful skid marks. And splash back when tipping in the toilet!! Some of dd1's massive overnight wees since being night trained can and do splash back too. I use a baby wipe and rinse the potty out when using the shower. She prefers that to the toilet though as she loves to sit on the potty with my phone and work on it as she's so constipated!!

Have you thought about using a toilet seat instead of a potty? How old is your DS?ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1475482185.081611.jpg

I dump solids in the toilet, wipe with toilet paper then rinse in laundry tub with domestos. We just got one of the seats a pp posted a pic of - it's pretty good! Only thing is DD can run to the pot, pull her own pants down & sit down , she can't balance on the little step to pull pants down just yet so I have to be there the whole time.
