Pourty: The Potty That Pours!

Potty training with Lexi is like pulling teeth! She can't seem to concentrate for long enough to use a potty because she loses interest so quickly that something else distracts her before she actually goes toilet and then off she goes, nappyless, peeing as she goes! Arghhhhhhh!!

I'm sure this is a story similar to many Mummies of 23 month olds trying to potty train. I was at my wits end. I would have waited until Lexi was a little older because she obviously isn't ready or interested in starting the potty training process yet however, she has forced my hand by persisting in removing her nappy herself then going for a wee or a poo on the floor or in her cotbed. No matter what pyjamas or clothes I put her in, she somehow manages to houdini herself out of her nappy without ever removing any clothes!! Sleepless nights up with her are bad enough but sleepless nights changing blankets, bed sheets, mattress protectors, teddy bears covered in... Yep! She has certainly forced my hand alright!

So when I was asked if Lexi and I would like to review the Pourty Potty I was so hopeful that just maybe this would be the key... A new, brightly coloured, practical potty that would capture her attention and get her interested in starting the potty training process again.

When the Pourty arrived Lexi was instantly interested. It is a fantastic bright pink colour which caught her eye and she asked to use it straight away.

The fact she didn't actually go to the toilet I feel is irrelevant because just the fact of her asking to use it meant to me that we were making progress and any tiny amount of progress gave me huge optimism!!

Not only is the Pourty great looking, it is well thought out and practical. As the name suggests, the Pourty is specifically designed so that with no mess or fuss, you can pour the contents of the Pourty down the toilet without splash back or drips going all over the place. This unique design means it has won numerous, well deserved, Awards.

Added to the unique design feature, fantastic appearance and the fact that Lexi actually, for the first time ever, showed interest in potty training and using it; the Pourty is hygienic, a lovely shaped "Dri-Bot" design, made from sturdy, rigid plastic which is thick and unrelenting so a toddler can't break it but also isn't too heavy that you can't carry it from room to room if you want to with the purpose made handle on the front.

The Pourty comes in blue, white, pink...

And now... Purple!

And retails for just £9.99 which may be a little more expensive than some other potties, but for such an innovative potty, I think a few extra pennies are well worth it to get your little one to um... spend a penny! ;)

You can buy the Pourty from lots of retailers (list here) both online and instore. If you'd like more information about the Pourty or it's origins then take a look at the Pourty website or pop over to their Facebook page where they'd love to chat with you! There is also a brilliant video on YouTube which you may find of interest here.

I won't lie; Lexi is still wearing nappies BUT she DOES use the Pourty Potty. Albeit occasionally, but she does use it which is a massive step in the right direction for me so, Pourty obviously do something right! I'm very, very optimistic that with further praise, time and patience (plenty of patience!!), she WILL get there and I think that that is all thanks to Pourty and their fabulous Potty. So thank you Pourty, your Potty That Pours definitely seems to be having a positive effect on Lexi's mammoth journey towards potty training so I would absolutely say that your Pourty is Loved By Lexi.
