How it works
There comes a time in every baby’s life when you need to slowly prepare them for a diaper to potty transition. Those are quite confusing times for children since it is an unfamiliar quest. Many children get cranky when you try to place them on a potty and who could blame them? They learn by watching their parents and they have never seen an adult pee in a potty. In fact, the whole design might have them confused. What is this weird colorful bowl in which I’m supposed to sit without my undies?
Developing these habits at a proper age is crucial, however, it can be hard to explain to babies what the purpose of this whole new educational quest is. They are more comfortable trying out new things once they witness the same objects used by their caring parents. Placing them on the toilet seat is not as hard as teaching them to flush or pick up the toilet seat which is quite impossible to be done with a regular potty.
However, what if there was a miniature toilet, sized perfectly for your little one that looks just like the one that grown-ups use and it offers a comfortable and well-known approach to potty training? Meet the Summer Infant My Size Potty, an endearing and unconventional potty that looks the same as a conventional adult toilet. One of its most fun features is the flushing handle that makes flushing water noises when you press it, which we can all agree, seems weirdly captivating when you are a child. It sounds like a wave of water but it feels as if the potty is giving you a standing ovation for your ability to be an independent toilet user.
It also comes with a wipe dispenser which is built in the actual toilet so you can easily access the cleaning paper once the whole smelly challenge has been conquered. This way your little ones are also encouraged to practice and understand cleaning after themselves. Since the lid is removable, parents can store tiny toys within reach that keep the children occupied while they are using the toilet. There is a clip-on splash guard which can be very easily attached on the toilet in case boys are using it, however, it is pretty useful for girls as well, since younger toddlers can sometimes make a mess.
It has a flip-up lid that is very convenient for little boys to learn manners when they are trying to learn to pee while standing up. There's also a removable pot so you can easily clean up the potty once your baby is done with it. The overall design seems very clean and simple so it looks like a real adult toilet and when placed next to the regular toilet, the mini version gives the whole bathroom a cute and adorable look which is something you can rarely say to describe a WC.
The best way to educate your children how to go to the toilet by themselves is showing them how to do it, however, adults can’t fit in a baby’s potty. If you are a parent, however, you’ve probably rushed to the toilet with your baby when you really needed to go. Hey, no shame here, it’s hard being a parent and we’ve all done things we’re not proud of.
However, those little last minute exhibitions allowed for our children to pretty much get the idea that it is a comfortable safe space that mommies and daddies use so they will be willing to learn how to use it properly and join the adult club. The Summer Infant My Size Potty makes toilet training an educational quest that is meant to be taken seriously since parents do it as well on their adult toilets so children will be eager to imitate the grownups and develop some basic hygiene habits.
It is also very cute to observe the enthusiasm boys have for picking up the flip-up lid to pee standing up. Enjoy it, cause you’re going to miss it when they are teenagers and forget to pick up the lid almost every time. Jokes aside, it is truly an entertaining potty and the top can be removed in case you want to put some colorful picture books so your child can have amusement options within reach while delivering a smelly surprise.
There is a removable pot which can be quickly removed from the whole baby toilet and easily transferred for disposal purposes. It is very lightweight and can be washed in the shower in an instance so the whole maintaining process is a frustration-free journey. The flip-up lid is very helpful since it prevents pee from getting out of the urinating area which can cause a mess all around the floor, especially if your kid is using the potty in the living room area or the bedroom. It is rather irritating that sometimes the lid falls off when the child is positioning itself on the seat, however, when used properly, it will prevent some accidental leaks which means you won’t have to clean the floor every time your kid has to pee.
This particular product can be used once the child turns 18 months until they reach 50 pounds. The dimensions of the seating area are calculated as 9.5 x 11.25 inches while the interior seat opening is measured as 4.5 x 6.25 inches, so you can rest assured that is big enough so toddlers can fit comfortably on the toilet seat without sliding inside the pot. Its size is also very convenient since it’s not too big and you can place it next to the adult toilet without taking too much space and blocking the whole bathroom. After all, It is specifically designed to adapt to the needs of the youngest members of the family and prepare them for transitioning to real toilets one day, so you might as well place them next to each other so children get a clearer picture of the purpose of a toilet.
The only expense that comes along with this product is the regular battery supply which is required for the fun and encouraging flushing sounds but it is such an important component for the potty training to seem fun and realistic, that you will be glad to spend a few more bucks and keep the magic alive. Seeing the face of your children when they flush the toilet by themselves after using it is truly priceless so you might find this potty pretty fairly priced, especially since your children will be using it multiple times a day.
The Summer Infant My Size Potty is the closest thing to a real adult toilet specifically made so your little ones can have a glimpse of the adult world and be inspired to go to the toilet like their parents. It is highly unlikely that you won’t use this potty or be disappointed with its components. In fact, it is an excellent gift for baby showers, birthdays and expecting parents since every baby needs a potty and this little training toilet is the boss of all baby potties. It makes the learning experience fun and incredibly simple so your child can be encouraged to go to the toilet even when you are not around.
