For me potty training is one of the worst stages of parenting. The endless trips back and forth to the potty, the accidents and the stress of being out and about when they scream for the toilet at the most inopportune moment!
Number five had been showing a lot of interest and had been using the potty sporadically for a while but I was yet to take the leap and go for it.
When I was asked by Summer Infant UK to try out their new My Size potty I realised this would be the perfect time to take the plunge.
When the parcel arrived all the children were so excited to see a potty that was just like a miniature toilet. To be honest I was even really taken with how lifelike it was.
The package came in several parts and was really easy to assemble.
There is a liftable lid which can also have a splash guard attached to save any accidents from little boys. We haven’t tried this out as being the youngest of three boys he had taken to standing already!
Under the lid is a removable bowl that is really easy to remove and clean as it is a lot smaller than a traditional potty.
In the top of the potty there is a little compartment to store wipes and if the top is removed you can place a few books or toys to keep them amused. This has come in really handy as number five had a tendency to jump up from the toilet before he is ready so something to keep him occupied that is close to hand is perfect.
The selling point for us though was definitely the toilet flush they when pulled gives a great flush and giggle sound which makes for the perfect reward for doing a good job.
For me anything that make such a tricky task fun and as easy as possible is a hit in my book. It is the perfect potty to make the transition from potty to toilet go smoothly as they look so alike.
The My Size Potty was a huge hit with number four and it is a shame that this great potty was not around through the struggles of my other four!
*we were gifted this potty for the purpose of this review and they are all my own, honest opinions.
