Balt Red Cup under the Toilet Seat: This simple but effective precaution will keep your little one safe at night. You may have heard that drinking from a red cup will give you an opening- Welcome to the club. But where did this myth come from? The answer is probably because adults have been drinking from a Red Cup for thousands of years. Children, on the other hand, have only been drinking from a standard white cup for about the same amount of time. Red Cups don’t just look red – they are also made of polyethylene, which is a highly absorbent material with high levels of natural estrogen in it. Drinking alcohol efficiently excretes the excess gaseous acetaldehyde produced by the liver after eating carbs and sugars. So it has well-known health benefits that drinking out of a red cup causes more harm than good.
Why put a red cup under the toilet seat at night?
The red cup under the toilet seat is actually a very effective precaution. It will keep your little one safe by preventing them from drinking from a red cup and opening their mouth to drink from a white cup.
What Can Happen When Your Child Drinks Out Of A Red Cup?
- A child accidentally drinking from a red cup will warm the lining of his mouth. When he drinks out of a red cup, his body releases acetaldehyde and it accumulates in his stomach causing headaches and dizziness.
- A child drinking from a red cup will warm the lining of her mouth as well and eventually make her heart hurt more than it already does because of a disorder called Alcoholic Fatigue Syndrome (AFS).
- Drinking from a red cup will cause an excess amount of phlegm to build up in your child’s abdomen. The excess phlegm can push through their lungs and cause pneumonia or bronchitis. It could also cause their lungs to waste away due to severe scarring – it’s just like TB in terms of progression, but if you ignore this bacteria, it could kill them within 6 months.

What To Do Instead To Help Keep Your Child Safe At Night?
- Bad habits in children have become such a big concern that sleep training has been started again. If your child is afraid of the dark, she can be given a similar blanket to wear as an infant and should be told what it symbolizes. The striped touchable blanket that smells good can also be great while they’re trying to get used to the idea of falling asleep in their own bed again after being cooped up all day.
- If your child is afraid of the dark, you can try to get him used to it by taking him out for a walk with the lights turned off. Just make sure he’s not too hot and you’re not too cold.
- If your child is afraid of the dark, you can try to get him used to it by going on a short trip during the day or after he goes to bed. You could take him out for a short drive in his car or take a picnic in the park (with the lights on). The goal is to make sure that your child gets used to being in public places without being scared.
- If your child is afraid of the dark, you can try to get him used to it by taking a picture of yourself standing next to something scary while standing next to something safe – such as a chair and some toys – then show it to your child while standing next-to-next-to that same scary thing without showing any fear at all. This will help reinforce that they are safe and that they can hide from whatever might be scary to them at night if they’re scared.
- If your child is afraid of the dark, you can try to get him used to it by giving them an opportunity every night before bedtime so that he feels like he’s earned his sleep time: “Hey! I’m going downstairs before bedtime just so I don’t wake up in the middle of my sleep so we can continue our fun downstairs!”
- If your child is afraid of the dark, you can try to get him used to it by getting a night light in each room (or hallway) and showing them how they can turn them on and off or adjust their brightness.
How To Put A Red Cup Under The Toilet Seat To Keep Your Kid Safe?
- Find a large red or orange Rubbermaid or similar trash can and place it at the bottom of your stairs, in front of your basement doorway, under your shower, by the bathtub, by their bed (or in the closet).
- Once you have 2-3 of these cups, fill one with hot water every time you need to use them (because this will also teach them to use them first, before they go out).
- Let your child see that you do it. Then look at him and ask him to hold the cup-like he does when he’s peeing and tell him to wait for his “pee-pee” until he sees you do it first! Then if he’s still scared, let him go stand in front of the so-called pee cup when he needs to go again until he gets used to this part too.
- If they are smart enough to know their toilet is somehow different from yours so that they don’t need a cup for it then just put one there for show purposes – or stick one under each toilet seat so that they’ll remember that you have a “special” place for theirs too!
- If your kid is already trained well and has no problem going in their bathroom after doing his business then as long as he knows where yours are etc., then try and get some more cups without telling him where they are until after you get one- and train him what “no,” “no thank you,” etc. means when they have to use the bathroom.
- If there is one thing I can recommend to anyone who has a pet (or a child) that’s afraid of heights, it’s to get a night light for their bathroom and then get them used to having it on during bath time and at night time too! It does make things seem a little bit safer when they see that you can turn it on & off! It gives them that little extra reassurance knowing it’s there in the corner by their sink – especially if it’s something they need to use at night.
There are many situations in life where you need to put something under the toilet seat to keep your child safe. Raising a child is one of them. Sure, they may be able to drink from a red cup when they are very small but once they hit six months, it is time to switch to glass. Drinking from a red cup is bad for your child’s health and can even be harmful. But there are ways to safely and effectively stop your child from drinking from a red cup.
