Default how many potty spots do you have??

soooo currently, Ein is limited to "chill n hang-out n go potty" in my second bedroom, where there is no furniture and no rugs. That room also has two potty places(currently a fresh grass potty area). I want to give him more freedom to roam(maybe not now but when the time comes and he is older), but I wonder how many potty spots do I have to provide throughout the house for Ein?? Does every single room should have a potty spots?(i.e. livingroom, bedroom, kitchen, and his room)?? or do you just have one designated spot where they always go?

Argh.. I don't think DH will appreciate five potty spots all around the home(for decorative purposes.......) I am sorta hoping that once Ein grows up little, he will be able to hold his pee, and head to his potty spot. Currently, if I am watching TV with Ein, I will bring him to the potty in his room if he looks like he has to go.

Ein follows me everywhere, and I doubt he will leave me to go potty in his room...I'd rather not have potty spots for every single room, but will provide them if that'e what everyone else does here... do you???

Bella has three. One on each level of the house. On the main floor (in the bathroom off the kitchen), upstairs (in the bathroom off the master bedroom) and one in the basement. I just feel there is less chance for accidents if I have one on each level of the house.

When she was really young, we had more on the main level of the house, but gradually eliminated them as she got older.

Just one. It's out in the balcony. But then we live in a small one bedroom apartment.

We live in a one level home and so we have 1 potty spot. It's a UgoDog placed in the laundry room (which is adjacent to the kitchen).
