Born a toilet baby[edit]

    • 2011, Sarah L. Breeden, The Pathways of Life - Uncensored, page 35
      Call me toilet baby because I was born in the toilet.
  • This is a valid quotation. When waiting for an ambulance and when in labor woman have the "urge to bear down/have a bowel movement" and end up on a toilet and inadvertently give live birth directly into the toilet. The girl that said call me toilet baby cause she was born in a toilet is a reasonable reference to this. Toilet babies don't all die! They do get older and stop being babies however.Lucifer 21:06, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

It's cited.Lucifer 04:05, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

One of those is clearly not supporting the definition as the person is alive, so I'm removing it. The first one is rather light on detail, not saying anything about whether or not the creature lived. — [Ric Laurent] — 11:38, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
Toilet babies often survive if they are a life birth, in other cases they die because if the mother is giving birth at home it was unexpected, yet in other cases the neonate dies from septic shock since the toilet bowl is full of bacteria, miscarriages occur here too, as too homemade abortions, placenta's are also delivered via this route along with menses. I am assuming you didn't realize toilet babies survive routinely so I am going to readd that quotation in good faith.Lucifer 12:36, 7 December 2011 (UTC)
This has four citations.Lucifer 21:30, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

According to urban dictionary a "toilet baby" is a crap so large it resembles a crowning infant. Most Google hits for "toilet baby" are for babies playing in a toilet. I don't think the cites prove a thing. They are simply examples of normal attributive use of a noun. In each of them the baby is called toilet baby because it was found in a toilet. If it had been found in a closet, it would have been a "closet baby". Delete unless better proof is brought forth. --Hekaheka 23:45, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Urban dictionary isn't a reliable source of anything and toilet baby is cited for this sense of it. As for closet baby that is neither here nor there. And this is the wrong venue to propose delete at.Lucifer 21:54, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
