Toilet training a toddler can be a messy and frustrating time for everyone. I am slowly working at the process with my young Master 3 at the moment.
This is a time where you really need to celebrate every little achievement and utilise positive reinforcement so anything that can help make this transition even the slightest bit smoother is going to be a welcome blessing.
I have always been a little hesitant about using a potty because you have to empty them. I would much prefer to teach my children to use the toilet, that way I don’t need to be emptying and cleaning a potty. Nice idea in theory but as toddlers start toilet training they are generally still rather small and a full sized toilet can be quite daunting. It can be a hazard to climb onto and a struggle to remain seated without falling in.
Tommee Tippee have addressed the hygiene concerns of potty training parents with the innovative new Pourty Potty! This is a potty that will stop the spillages resulting in trying to empty it. The Pourty Potty has a unique pouring duct at the back, which is perfectly placed to mean that it is away from where the toddler sits and touches, and means that everything is guided out through the duct and reduces the risk of spillages. There is an easy carrying handle on the front, keeping parents hands away from everything in the potty also.
The Pourty Potty considers toddlers, as it should, and has been designed to be comfortable for both girls and boys. It has a larger and wider seating area than other potties and a high splash guard. The potty is available in blue or cream and is made out of sturdy plastic. It is suitable for children from 12 months to 4 years so whether you begin your toilet training early or have a late bloomer this potty will be suitable for you.
Every toddler is unique and it stands to reason that their toilet training successes and timetables will be just as varied so the Tommee Tippee Pourty Potty is of a size that will suit the majority of toddlers.
Tommee Tippee Healthcare Consultant, Judy Kotowski said: “When thinking of toilet training your little one there are advantages to using a potty – it’s mobile, familiar and can be less daunting than using a toilet. Leave it in the bathroom and when you go to the toilet let them sit on it, allowing your child to try it out for size and become familiar.”
My gorgeous young man is showing every sign of being ready but still behaving quite stubbornly so I am hoping that the Pourty Potty will help give him the confidence to use the potty more often.
