Potty Training With My Carry Potty

OK, I admit. I think potty training is one of the hardest things I have ever had to teach her. Don’t get me wrong, in the long run I think the real challenge is bring them up to be nice human beings. But out of the little things like teaching them to eat solid foods, sleeping in a toddler bed, and sleeping in her own room, potty training is definitely the most frustrating one.

There are so many different opinions on how to potty train a toddler, it’s easy to get lost. But I decided to do it my own way and let her learn in her own pace. To do that, I stimulate her to use to potty when she goes to sleep or when she gets up. But that’s it. I don’t do the intensive potty training, where families lock themselves up in the house for days on end. I tried this and it’s not for me and definitely not for my daughter. She was frustrated after only a couple of days and we were no step closer to being potty trained.

Searching for a solution

After that first try I started thinking about what I could possibly do. There are days she asks to go to the potty quite often and then there are days she barely thinks about it. I ask her of course, but she usually says she doesn’t have to go. But, if she was going to be flexible, I had to have a flexible solution as well. What am I supposed to do when I’m out shopping or in a restaurant. Regular potties are usually too big to carry and after she went, where do I leave the, uhm, “produce”.

I’m a research freak when I bump into a problem, so I turned to the internet right away and started looking for a solution. That’s when I bumped onto the My Carry Potty.

The My Carry Potty

The potty comes with a handle so it’s easy to carry. The little one loves to carry her own potty. It seals off completely when you close it so there is no leaking. We even tested it! When they have to go in the middle of a store or a parking lot, you can close it and flush it away at home.

And, a real plus for the little ones, they come with funny animal prints. My daughter has a little cow potty and she loves it. You also have them in just plain colors, but I think the animals are so funny and since it’s for a toddler the product can of course use a little cute print on it.

My little girl’s opinion

I have three different potties at home, but ever since we’ve bought the My Carry Potty she only wants to use this one. If I try to put her on any of the other ones, she immediately gets up and tells me she wants the Cow Potty. I think that says it all.

On the road, it’s the same thing. As soon as we get out of the car, the first thing she thinks about is her cow potty. It’s in the trunk of the car, and she knows it. She makes sure we won’t forget het little cow in the car.

Mommy’s opinion

Ok we already know the little one is hooked on her potty, but for me it’s such a relief to know that if she has to go when we’re out of the house, we don’t have to start looking for a toilet like crazy persons. She can just go and we can flush it later.

By the way, this is not a sponsored post or anything. I would recommend the my carry potty to everyone, that’s how much I love this product. With a potty training toddler in the house our little cow potty really is part of our family.

  1. It’s so important to do what works best for your family. For us it was only using the regular potties (no extra transition) and waiting till the littles said they were ready to train. Then it became a matter of just setting a timer for every 60 minutes and having them sit for two. They then get a sticker.

  2. Okay, I am going to have to try this! We have the seat cover one and my little girl is traumatized after falling in. We have a little separate princess potty that she does not want because it’s not what mama uses. Maybe the carry potty is just the solution I have been looking for!

    1. Oh I’m so sorry to hear your little one is traumatized by the toilet. My little one only wants to sit on it with the seat cover, but she never wants to do anything on the toilet, but i’m happy she already wants to sit on it without crying. With potty training it’s always trying and trying to find the right way for your child.

  3. Once my daughter (FINALLY) decided to use the potty, public restrooms were not a problem. But, my son started earlier (backwards, I know. Girls usually catch on to the potty training thing earlier) and the loud flushing of public toilets was a real problem for him. Also, the automatic flushing toilets scared him. I can see where this would work very well for some kids.

    1. My daughter is also a late one, she’s now two and a half and she’s still not potty trained. She has weeks that go well and then there are weeks she couldn’t care less. But we keep trying and we keep bringing the potty with us.
