I thought I would share with you a fab product that we used on our potty-training journey. I hope this review of the Potette travel potty will give you some useful information if you’re wondering which portable potty to buy for when you’re out and about.

Potty-training the twiglets

We started potty-training C when she was 2 years and 8 months. H wasn’t ready (still p*ssing all over the house if I took his nappy off 🙈). Also, I figured I’d personally find it more manageable to do one at a time anyway, given that I wasn’t sure how it was going to go and had basically no idea what I was doing.

Anyway C did amazingly with wee and was dry within a couple of days. She started off doing well with number 2s as well but then seemed to regress after a little while, and now waits until she has a pull-up on at night to go 🙈 She’s not dry all night so we can’t take the nappy away yet but I’m sure she’ll get there eventually. I’ve read and heard that it’s very normal for 💩 to be a bit more tricky to crack.

Where can you buy the Potette travel potty?

A fellow twin mum recommended the Potette to me. So when we realised we were rapidly heading down the potty-training road with C, we headed straight to Mothercare and bought one. They’re also available from lots of other places too – John Lewis, Jojo Maman Bebe, Amazon etc.

How does the Potette work?

The Potette is basically a fold-away travel potty. You just open out the legs and click into place which takes seconds. Then you place a liner inside (a plastic bag with an absorbent pad in) and hook it round the legs.

TOP TIP: Always have a liner on there ready so you can whip the potty out and use it immediately (your kid I mean, not you obvs 🤣)

The Potette folds almost flat and comes with a drawstring bag to store it in. There are lots of suitcase-style travel potties on the market but given the fact that I still seem only able to leave the house with 50,326 bags of crap, I really love that the Potette folds flat. I just slip it in C’s rucksack with her spare clothes and wipes.

When the child has done their β€˜business’ (hate that word in this context 🤣) you just take the liner off then walk around with a bag of wee or poo until you find a bin 🤣 I usually just shove them discreetly in the buggy basket.

Summary of the Potette travel potty

Upsides:

  • Super convenient and easy to use
  • Also doubles as a toilet seat
  • Folds flat so easy to transport
  • Gives peace of mind when out and about
  • The liners are bidegradable.

Downsides:

  • Buying extra liners is a tad on the expensive side. However, if you use the potty mainly just for emergencies like we do, you don’t get through too many. Failing that, I’m sure a carrier bag and a bit of kitchen roll would do the job 🤣🤣
  • Not the most environmentally friendly as the bags are disposable (they are biodegradable though as mentioned above).

I hope this review of the Potette travel potty was useful to a few of you 😊 There was no sponsoring, gifting or anything here – I just think this product is fab so thought I’d share the love. What have you found invaluable for potty training? (Other than a sh*tload of wine obvs – that goes without saying 🤣)

Thanks for reading and if you’re starting potty-training soon, GOOD LUCK!

Til next time,

Hannah xx
