Ok so I haven't done this but I'm a night Pee'r, sometimes 2/3 times in one night. I drink alot of water. I can no longer be arsed getting out of bed, putting dressing gown on, opening door quietly so not to wake anyone, creeping down hallway, putting light on to lowest dimmer setting so don't feel like having anal smear done, and then repeating in reverse. I want a potty to pee in or an adult nappy. Anyone else sick of having to do ninja-pees?

well I just had my first nin bathroom pee and DP didn't stir. I decided to go with the adult nappy suggestion (thank you) neatly tucked into a bedpan. Its silent, discreet and odourless, unlike DPs farts and snores. What a lovely picture I paint, I'm not a slob honestly! Best bit, no cold corridor, cold toilet seat or brightlights. I'm converted grin grin

I can on very good authority tell you a toddler nappy will hold a full adult pee. My best friend (honestly not me) uses one when camping, just crouches down over it, then wraps up and bins it in the morning. A bit expensive if you need it every night though.

Not for me I'm afraid. Can't stand the thought of my husband listening to me take a pee in a pot beside the bed!
I like to keep some things a mystery wink
I would also be grossed out having to empty the bloody thing. Makes me boak at the thought and knowing my luck a child would slam a door in my face while I was holding it smile

Yes! I'm 34 wks pregnant with dc2 and our only bathroom is downstairs at the back of the house so I have to creep out of bedroom, down the stairs, into kitchen (where cats are shut in overnight and always waiting by the door to escape) and finally into freezing cold bathroom. Then repeat in reverse. If I wake DS he takes hours to resettle as he thinks it's 'morning time'. confused

A drop of disinfectant in your bedpan will sort out any odours, truffle. Although you can get female adaptors for those male urine bottles like they have in hospitals.

well despite some objections I have decided to purchase a bed pan. DP will not be warned as with further thought I would love to see the horror on his face of he caught me mid flow. Might frighten him by telling him I think waters have broke and we're having a surprise baby!

Not drinking water is not an option I suffer from dehydration due to meds and have to drink water constantly so this is it. A bed pan at 30, cheers Mum!

If DP complains I'll just tell him he can have a 'cock bottle' grin

I've done this! We were living in a huge, damp, draughty and decidedly creepy Victorian house with a downstairs loo when I was PG with DD. I used to pee in a potty and tip it down the bedroom sink with some bleach.
Now I'm PG again and still have a downstairs loo I'm considering a chamber pot! Or possibly installing the porta potty we used when the bathroom was being renovated on the landing! blush

Don't drink any fluids 2 hours before bed time - that should help

I use my old nappy bucket when camping, it has a snug fitting lid and is nice and wide to accommodate my wide arse, have a in Mothercare or somewhere?

ItsAWonderfulCervix Mon 09-Dec-13 18:17:29

So good i posted twice.

ItsAWonderfulCervix Mon 09-Dec-13 18:17:00

When camping I have a gazunder.

It is a little flip top bin. Lined with a bin liner. With a large cheapy disposable nappy in the bottom.

It is an invention of genius.

This is why some bright spark came up with the idea of an ensuite, isn't it thank fuck

Er midflow

If you are going to wee in a potty at nightime (no judgement) you should warn DP, what if you looked up kidflow and he was awake staring down at you in horror

We have downstairs toilets in our street, and my 82 year old neighbour recently got a small toilet and basin put in where a wardrobe would be. She said she had to cos she kept fallling off her bucket at night grin

AnotherWorld Mon 09-Dec-13 16:36:33

No. I haven't. And we go camping. Would rather walk across a field in the dark.

My boys pee in a bottle if we are caught short out and about. But they are 4 and 6.

What about getting a metal waste bin and using that? Higher, so you won't need to crouch down as far - some loo roll in the bottom to avoid noise, and an old hand towel to drape over top to avoid smells....??

One tip - if you decide on this, fill with water first to check for leaks just don't ask how I know smile

trufflesnuffler Mon 09-Dec-13 16:02:37

coke bottles....oh dear.

trufflesnuffler Mon 09-Dec-13 16:01:24

Anotherworld, would you or DP pee in anything but the toilet? I know friend who won't pee anywhere but a toilet which had caused alot of fuss whilst at festivals or on long country rambles. I was at uni my boyfriend used to piss in the sink in my room and into empty cock bottles as the bathroom was a cold 5 min walk away. I of course bleached it thoroughly and me ever used the sink for anything. Maybe I'm relaxed about it too much? I draw the line at pooing into the sink.

YABU

Nothing anyone else has said will convince me otherwise. Drink less water, kick out your attic lodgers, wear bigger PJs. Do not buy a potty. Eek.

trufflesnuffler Mon 09-Dec-13 15:34:45

Cheers for the suggestions! For those of your who have stated they also avoid bathroom treks I have a few question. I'm worried that if I wake DP whilst piddling into a bathpan et al he will be totally grossed out! I can imagine the moonlight coming through highlighting my fat arse ass I squat down beside the bed!

I'm only thinking of this bathroom avoidance as I wake myself up so much going to the toilet that I struggle to get back to sleep. Light and difficult sleeper as it is! As for leaving it outside not an option as have 35 year old family member and his fiance living in our attic room temporarily and they have to walk past our room. That said, a footfull of my bladder juice would teach them for never doing any cleaning and slowing down my Internet with their constant downloading. Hmmmm maybe I could sneak a log in too grin

What about a commode disguised as a bedroom chair? Usually have a plastic pot which will hold a good quantity, comfy to sit on, seat lid goes down after to keep smells enclosed, ideal!

Put the potty on the landing outside the bedroom door.

(Unless the DCs are likely to fall into it in the morning.)
