A pregnant mum has shared her hilarious (and disgusting!) experience after her two-year-old daughter had a toilet training disaster.

A mum has shared her horror experience after her two-year-old daughter had a toilet training disaster that sent her husband running for a bucket.

The mum, who is expecting her second child, said that she put her daughter down to sleep while her husband was in the shower and planned to have an early night herself when the chaos began.

A Nasty Surprise

Just moments after she was put down to sleep, the mum says that her daughter had a major toilet training disaster that is every parent’s worst nightmare.

“She covered herself from head to toe in her own poop,” she wrote in her post.

“She smeared it on the TV, the carpet, and all over her favourite blanket. It was in her hair and beneath her nails. It covered her belly and her back. Poop was EVERYWHERE.”

As if there wasn’t already enough mess, the mum says when her husband saw what had happened, he couldn’t hold it together.

“My husband has a weak stomach,” she said. “Cue projectile vomit. EVERYWHERE. I just sat down and cry-laughed for a good ten minutes. We’re expecting our second later this year. Send help!”

Not All Fun And Games

Comments on the mum’s post shared similar experiences, but some pointed out that many children never feel the need to play with their poop.

“Parents are poop masters! Masters of the poopaverse!” one mum wrote. “I am potty training my three-year-old and my life now revolves around other people’s bowel movements.”

“So far my two-year-old only wants to look at her poop, she’s very proud of her hard work,” another said. “We’re now potty training so fingers crossed it won’t progress to touching.”

The experience of toilet training is never an easy one, and if you manage to get out of it without at least one incident, you’re definitely in the minority! At least this mum was able to laugh at the situation – we don’t think her husband will ever live it down.

Has your child had a horror toilet training incident? Share it in the comments.

  • Totally gross but also happens alot…lol.


  • No smearing here thankfully


  • I feel very fortunate that nothing like this had happened to me! Both my toddlers adjusted really well with toilet training.


  • Oh no! It is so hard toilet training. My little one popped on the carpet in our lounge room, luckily the were little balls and fairly easy to clean!


  • Oh no! Glad the mum could see the humour in a difficult situation!


  • I never had this much horror incident. But sure toilet training is really stressful.


  • Oh my goodness :( poor Mum! No disasters like that for my son …..yet.


  • Oh dear! Fortunately I have never had a moment like this!


  • Haha that was indeed disastrous!! Had issue when we were toilet training my baby sister she refused to sit in the toilet and wanted a little potty but after a while we encouraged her to use the toilet but there was a bit of bed wetting and poop in undies …..


  • We’ve had a few poo’namis in our time…lol.


  • Oh dear! I’ve had a couple of pooplosions but probably never as bad as this!


  • Never had this problem but when I was at work my husband rang me to get home. We only live a couple of minutes from my work so I quickly raced home. I always used cloth nappies and my husband had changed our boys’ nappy and he was running around and poop was falling out. Luckily it wasn’t really soft but I had to clean it up and put the nappy on properly. From that day onwards I bought disposable nappies for when my husband was home looking after the boys. I still used the cloth nappies though


  • No, we were obviously very lucky that we managed toilet training without horrid mishaps.


  • The poor mum. Double wammy of a clean up.
    We had a few ‘floaters’ in the tub when we first started potty training… my little ones reaction to her brown deposit ….she jumped out of the bath in fear


  • Hoping I don’t have to experience this!
