Having potty trained my first child (a girl) very easily with a standard issue potty, I was totally unprepared for the nightmare that followed with child #2, a boy. I bought this potty in a fit of desperation!
My son is 3 this month and we have started potty training a few times with no success. Others seemed very uncomfortable and he couldn't actually get all his boy bits in. The tears, tantrums and obvious discomfort were proving a major barrier to progress. He's terrified of the loo, even with a seat - so I'd reached the point where I thought he'd be in nappies until he was 12. He refused to even look at a potty, never mind sit on it
This is the first and only potty he has sat on willingly, voluntarily and comfortably - let alone performed - which he did on day 2 of it being in the house.
We've a way to go but I sing the praises of this potty from the rooftops. It's comfy, sturdy, wide and plenty of room to get those all important parts of anatomy in. Also, being nearly 3, he's quite tall and this is a great sitting height so he doesn't have to squat so low down. The removable pan is brilliant and he takes great pride helping me tip contents down the loo. Easy to clean, which is a plus.
It is large and bulky if we needed to carry it around (which I have no doubt we will) but necessity is the mother of all invention so we'll accommodate it somehow. The main thing is he has overcome a big psychological barrier. I have no doubt it'll be in great shape for my youngest child when she reaches that stage. I was sceptical but am so glad I read the positive reviews and opted to buy it.
