What To Consider When Choosing A Potty

Is It Fun?

Adding a play element to a potty can make the whole toilet training experience more fun, especially for kids who are a bit scared of toilets. Little ones love acting like grown-ups so a potty which looks like a ‘real’ toilet and makes a flushing sound can be a great option.

How Easy Is It To Clean?

Some potties are easier to clean than others. Ones which have a removable insert can be emptied and cleaned more easily than bulkier potties.

Is It Portable?

A potty which is easy to carry and move around the house can be super handy, especially if you need to be quick off the mark. There are also travel potties which are specifically made for when you are out and about. You may want a potty which you use for at home and another for when you go out or you may just decide on one for both.

Is It Comfortable To Sit On?

Toddlers like to feel comfortable and secure so a potty which feels good to sit on will be more favourable than one which doesn’t. There are potty chairs available which are good for adding extra comfort.

FAQ’s Potties

Is it better to use a potty or toilet?

A potty can feel safer for little ones at first rather than getting straight onto a toilet. A good tip is to put the potty out ready in your bathroom and then when you sit on the toilet your child can sit on their potty at the same time.

At what age do you start potty training?

Around 18-30 months, or when you feel your child is ready to start. If you try too early it may take longer.

When should you buy a potty?

When your child starts to recognise that they they have a wet or dirty nappy. They may begin to tell you when they are peeing. If they start fidgeting before they need to go, these are all good signs that your child is ready to start potty training and a good time to buy a potty.

How much do potties cost?

There are potties available to suit all budgets. A simple potty can cost less than £10 right up to the more expensive options (which feature additional extras such as sounds and songs) which can be up to £40-£50.
