Called in Barbados a "Po" I think they mean a "pot" but probably mistook the French pronunciation.
Also the classy expression is..'The white lady with hands akimbo" 'Potty" is for the kids.
"Chimmy" In Jamaica it's just a pot in the 70-80s Era,It's what our grandparents Used to Urinate in At night when they woke up during the late night hours,and they would empty it in the morning when the got Up "Chinmy"...
The pot Called "Dodoo" in Suriname and in some part of French Guyane
Still in use for exactly the same purpose as "sleepyeyes 007"'s comment above
But also use to steam the vagina with special herbs or leafs

I know it as 'posey' used in the manner described above as chamber pot.
I grew up in the '60s with my mother and grandmother who, coming from Jamaica, referred to the pee-can as a chimmy. I thought the term British (Mom & Gma came to the US before Jamaican independence), until I read the post above claiming the regional term as Jamaican for chamber pot. That pleases me.
Yes that's what my parents and grandparents usually use in the 70's. Also known as the pee pot
Yep In stvincentb it’s called a potty or posey and I used it when I was little I’m 45 and still remember 👍🏽
I had to wash the chimmy every morning as my duty. My father had an enamel chimmy. I have a plastic one home, keep it as souvenir.
I am using the Posey to do Sits bath, once the Posey is properly positioned on/around the toilet it feels wonderful to sit and let the steam from the hot water enters the private area it feels soothing especially after the bath. It was one of my sibling duty to empty the Posey in the morning,, but she did not liked to empty it when there was feces mixed with urine. Doing this chore continues in G
It is Sitz' bath, not Sits bath I Leon stands corrected
Born in 1956 Manchester England my parents were from Jamaica, I remember every bedroom had an emamal "chimmy " under the beds. The thing is, you would pray you wouldn't spill the chimmy on the way to the bathroom to empty it.. oh! such wonderful memories.
