Jaime Pressly Dishes on Potty Training Dezi

The Spelling-McDermott‘s aren’t the only ones in the potty training trenches! During a Wednesday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! actress Jaime Pressly revealed that her own 22-month-old son Dezi James is ready to shed his diapers in favor of some Pull-Ups! In fact, it was the little man himself who decided the time had come after seeing a neighborhood pal named Ava — described as Dezi’s “little girlfriend” — using his potty chair. “It lights up and plays music,” Jaime explained, “and it has a toilet paper roller that when you roll it, it goes ‘good job!'”

Armed with new-found motivation, Jaime says that Dezi soon began asking to use the chair, himself. “So yesterday morning I put Pull-Ups on him and he realized those were the same things Ava wore, and he ran straight to the potty chair, sat down, and went ‘Mommy…potty…yay!'” Jaime recalled. “I went, ‘Good job’…And then I realized there was no music [coming from the chair].” She added with a laugh,

“So he stands up and — pants still down — goes ‘potty…yay!’ as he pees on the floor beside the potty chair.”

Dezi is the first child for Jaime and her ex-fiancé Eric Calvo, aka DJ Eric Cubiche.

haha that’s cute!

I was in a store one day and this little girl was holding herself and going, “peeps go peeps!” I started giggling and the grandmother said, “we just started going on the potty this week!” I was like, oh wow she looks really young and the grandmothers like, your telling me she’s 15 months! Apparently the little girl had seen her older sister going and decided she wanted to do it as well! If only they could all be that eager! lol

how funny and cute – it’s adorable how little ones get it and don’t get it all at the same time. he knew he wanted to go potty, he just didn’t know he had to go IN the potty.

hahaha too funny! my son just turned 2 and he does the same thing! He sits down, gets up and then pees on the floor…obviously not getting the point, but it’s cute to watch!

Oh man I can’t stand pull-ups! There just diapers without the flaps, we went straight to underwear and it worked out great!

I am out of the loop – Dezi’s father is Jaime’s EX-fiance? did they break up??

Cute story🙂

Have we seen any pictures of Dezi?

CelebBabyLover on

trixie- Sort of. According to Jaimie, she and Eric decided to take “a little break” from their relationship.

Nina- But going right to underwear awfully messy (what with all the ineveitable accidents and all)? Personally, I would at least try reusable (both cloth and vinyl versions are avaliable) training pants first! Not criticizing you, just wonderng how you managed to deal with all the mess!

CelebBabyLover on

Lis- Yes, we have, including one very cute photo of him dressed as Yoda for his first Halloween!

Nina on

CelebrityBabyLover- Actually the undies worked out perfect for us because he could really feel it when he had an accident. It took 2 days and now only rarely does he have accidents! I know every child is different but I really don’t think pull ups help at all.

I started potty training both my sons at 2 and a half. It didn’t take long for each to ‘catch on.’ I think 2 years old is waaay too young.. Just my two cents..
