Chrissy Teigen is a determined toddler toilet-trainer and nothing will stop her

Posted in Learning and Development.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are emerging as a power couple to rival their high profile buddies Kim and Kanye, but that doesn’t mean they’re immune from life’s more poopy moments.

What happens on tour stay on tour

Chrissy recently shared some details of her efforts to toilet train the pair’s two-year-old daughter while the family are on tour, showing off Luna’s miniature toilet as it was transported from hotel to tour van.

While we might think of touring as endless rounds of cocktails and throwing TVs out of windows, it’s clear that for this gang things are a wee bit more … sedate. 

“Potty training on tour,” Chrissy posted on her Instagram stories alongside a photo of her hugging the potty with an unimpressed looking Luna on her hip. Another clip showed said potty being popped into a vehicle and Luna sporting a similar expression. #mood

The little loo they’re toting is called the Summer Infant My Size Potty, a set-up which mimics a real toilet and even makes a flushing sound. Gazooks!

This potty – which sells locally for around $60 –  sounds marvellous and from all accounts, it’s very motivating for kids who are transitioning from nappy to loo.

Other parents who reviewed this potty give Luna’s toot a big thumbs-up so it’s clear that Chrissy and Jon have chosen wisely.

“My daughter loves this,” one mum said of the tiny toilet. “She really didn’t want to use the potty or toilet with a toddler insert but since we bought this she has started to use it more often than not.”

“Flushing sound gets your toddler involved,” another parent said. “The perfect height and easy for our to sit on. As a miniature toilet, it makes her feel like a big kid!”

“This potty is great for my boy,” a pleased parent revealed. “The flush feature is a little reward he gets to push each time he uses his potty. Also a good height.”

“You may not look”

It’s not the first time Chrissy has shared the trials and tribulations of toddler toilet habits. 

“Hiding-while-pooping is my favourite thing about toddlers,” Chrissy said back in February.

“I didn’t know it was a thing before kids. [Luna] creates a small, gated community or fort and you may not look at or speak to her for 10-15 mins. She will call for you, but it is a trick. You may not look.”

It’s clear that this shy-pooping attitude continues to this day.
