Poo club

Posted by

For a while now me and MrsDWB have been getting increasingly frustrated at the fact that LB won’t tell us when he needs a nappy change.

obviously we check randomly but at this age he should be able to tell us when he has filled his nappy.
Just this morning when I collected him from nursery I walked into what smelt like a sewage works. I jokingly said to them “Oof, its a bit fragrant in here”. I was met with a look of disgust and was told it was courtesy of my beautiful baby boy.

Then when going through his rucksack I saw the below. It may explain why he is so reluctant to tell us hee has made a visit to brown town.


Was/is your little one a member of poo club?
What other rules of poo club can you think of?
What can we do to explain that we appreciate his loyalty to his poo brethren but he needs to tell us when he has ‘Dropped a bomb’.
Needless to say we won’t be attempting potty training for some time!

As always, thanks for reading.


  1. Fortunately I’m all done with stinky nappies (thank god!) but my middle child WASN’T a member of the poo club, in fact he would grab you by the hand walk into the bedroom (we lived in a flat then) lie down on the bed and hold his legs in the air ready for the change!

    1. I can’t wait to be rid of them! Our eldest potty trained like a dream…I fear the same won’t happen the second time!
      Speaking of which I am being shouted from the toilet!! lol
      Thanks for the comment.

  2. Ha I loved this!! My youngest was in the Poo Club definitely!! His added part was to hide when he’s doing a poo but to do it like he’s hiding as part of game! No advice to give it was just a sudden change in the youngest. One day he was in the club next day he wasn’t. Maybe he broke the rules? Maybe he spoke about Poo Club!

  3. Oh dear! We are sort of attempting potty training but I know he’s not completely ready. The problem is, he does do wees on the potty, just not all the time and so I don’t want to go back to square one so we’ll just continue with how we are doing it – no rush! One thing though is that Zach does not tell us about poos either – or he does but it’s often too late, he is already in the process! If he does tell us, he doesn’t seem to be able to do a proper poo on the potty and finds it very difficult. So, yes, there is no rush. I think when they are ready they will tell you 🙂

    Here’s one for you though – at 1.30am this morning he was crying and I went into his room and he said mummy, I’ve got poo on my hand!! That was nice! He barely ever poos in the night! #mmwbh

    1. If you notice there is rule number seven…thats because on the odd occasion he has walked up to use and we’ve wondered how he has choclate on his hands…..he hasn’t…it’s not choccolate…FUN!

      Thanks for the comment.

  4. No 1 – talking about Poo Club is generally best reserved for when in the company of adults not familiar with the intricacies of Poo Club. In fact, whatever questions these strangers ask of them – the answer is poo poo. I’m through this stage now but it still makes me smile.

  5. My fella was a full on member of poo club. Did all the rules. Not forgetting his own personal favourite.

    Whinge for hours to go to the park. Wait till at the park and the only swing he would sit on was free. Then do a big poo!

    Hopefully Baby Pink will NOT be joining poo club!
