So you’ve come here because your child has just pooped on the floor or maybe..even worse! You’ll have to read this post to hear the worst! I’ve written this blog & compiled the stories because I want you to know you aren’t alone.
We have all been witness to the awful toilet accidents our kids have, so read on, de-stress & laugh while you’re at it!
They don’t learn to be potty trained straight away so here are our stories. Enjoy, sick bags at the ready.


My Story

Picture this, B had been asking to have a nappy on for a few minutes but I told him no, wee wee’s were to be done in the potty, not in a nappy. I sit down & hear the tiniest whimper, I’m greeted by a small wet patch on the floor. B gets a little moan from me because I had just asked him if he needed to go, as I got closer though the smell of poop hit me. The poor little bugger had poop his pants, they were standing about a foot away from his bum, THE POO WAS THAT BIG!!!!
When I realised this he broke down in tears & I felt awful for the poor kid, he was so mortified!
I made sure to make a fuss of him & tell him that it was okay & that this time around it was my fault for not giving him a nappy(He doesn’t like the idea of pooping on his potty yet)
Off we trundled to the toilet (wipe clean floor you see), there I am desperately trying to take his pants off without said huge poop running away & sadly it makes a jump for it before I’ve got the pants safely off… PLOP… It rolled onto my wooden flooring into the grooves & everything! By this time I was in tears from laughing & B was just in tears.
I had a brain wave & told him we had to clean his bottom but that he could flush his poop away & say BYE BYE!!!
This pleased him a lot & he stopped crying.

Flushing said poop away was a fabulous idea, in my infinite wisdom though I did a wee on top, while doing said wee B farted & 3 huge cowpats of poop rocketed out of his bottom! ALL OVER MY TROUSERS & THE FLOOR! I was in bits, I found it hilarious but he was so so mortified. Half a toilet roll later said poop is cleared up & I’ve recovered. Sadly both poops & my wee caused the toilet to get blocked & I had to plunge it for 5 minute while B was in a state over his escaping poops!
My toilet is now clear & my floor is bleach clean!


Hannah Spannah’s Story

My boy was in the bath at about 18 months old. I was sat on the floor next to the bath and got a text. I was replying to it when he started to gag and make a funny noise. Basically, he’d pushed out a giant log, it had floated up, he grabbed it and thought it was food!
It was vile. I scraped his tongue, wiped out his mouth with a flannel, brushed his teeth and gave him lots to drink and then finished his bath in the sink, got him dry and ready before having to go log fishing in the bath before bleaching all the toys!

Mrs H’s Story

Whilst potty training my daughter decided to wee in the toy teapot from her Emma Bridgewater tea set. She then continued to pour the wee into the tea cups and offer them to her teddies. I thought she was just playing nicely in her bedroom. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when I found out.

Me Becoming Mum’s Story

A couple of days into September – and our second attempt at toilet training (which has now thankfully been successful this time!) – we had an epic accident.
Our daughter (who turned two in February) was doing really well, using the step and mini seat we had bought to help her use the “big toilet” as she likes to call it.
She was playing in our front room, minding her own business having a tea party behind our sofa – and I was happy to have a moments peace so left her to it.
The next thing I know she’s running in front of me half naked shouting, “Mummy, I done a poo!” She was so proud of herself!
Turns out, she decided she couldn’t make it to the toilet in time, and so she had pulled down her knickers and pooped on the carpet.
I spent most of the rest of the day scrubbing, disinfecting and stain-removing my carpet.
It was the first (and last!) poop accident (thankfully!) but I could hardly be cross with her; she was so proud she had remembered to take her knickers off so she didn’t get them dirty!

Mum Amie’s Story

When my daughter was potty training, I took her to a soft play. I kept nervously asking her if she needed a wee every 5 minutes and she said ‘no’ each time. Then, when we were in the ball pit, she announced she needed a wee. I quickly yanked her out but it was too late, she’d already done it… I went and reported the incident to a member of staff and apologised profusely. He just said, ‘no worries’ and looked totally unconcerned. We stayed there for another hour and a half and no-one went to clean the ball pit. We never went back to that soft play again.


Choni’s Story

Put my son down for a nap, heard him running about so I went upstairs to check him…THE HORROR I WAS GREETED BY!
He had pulled all the poo out of his nappy, smeared it all over the walls, the bed, carpet, his hair and for good measure popped some in his mouth….I wanted to cry!


Helen’s Story

Husband was sharing a bath with our boy when something which wasn’t a new bath toy went floating by, of course I ran and got the camera before I scooped it out and got our boy out!



So there you have it, just a few of our funny, maybe gag inducing, potty training stories.
Enjoy parents!
