Hello!

My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

WIN a Pourty Potty!



As you may know, we are just starting out on our Potty Training journey and have decided to take the Pourty all the way through with us! Yes, we think it's that good! Here's a little bit to explain why we are taking the Pourty Potty with us on our quest for the 'Ditching of the Nappy' Quest ...


When emptying a conventional potty you have to pour the pee and/or poo over the area where the child sits and pee dribbles down the side of the potty and can go everyewhere. So parents Jonnie and Lucy Rathbone have come up with a very simple but effective solution - the Pourty potty. 






You can pour the poo and wee through the duct out of the back of the Pourty potty away from where your toddler sits or touches with no messy dribbles. Simply clean by refilling the Potty potty with water and pouring it out of the back of the potty again.

The Pourty potty has a large and wide seating area which is comfortable to sit on for boys and girls. With some potties the narrow seating area can be uncomfortable and leave a red ring around your child's bottom when they stand up.

The two sides of the back rest of the Pourty potty offer ample support to your child if they do lean back and are shaped for maximum comfort. The Pourty potty's splash guard is higher than on a lot of potties to help prevent any unwanted spillage, especially when boys are using the potty.




The Pourty potty is made out of a sturdier plastic than most normal potties. This helps give the child confidence when sitting on the potty and also means that there is less risk that the potty will stick to their bottom when they stand up (which can have unfortunate and messy consequences).


We are really looking forward to testing this product out and hopefully reporting on our triumphs, even if there are one or two tears and tantrums on the way! We are looking forward to it that much, in fact, that we have teamed up with the lovely parent team at Pourty to give my readers the opportunity to win a Pourty Potty of their own to take on their traning journey! The winner will be able to choose from a selection of attractive colours, pink, blue, purple or white.

    My best tip is to go with your child and when they are ready not when other people say you should potty train as each child is different!

  34. I have tagged both pages and commented on the facebook page. My top potty training tip would have to be make sure you do not make a child feel guilty if they do have an accident as this can make them regress. instead offer plenty of encouragement, let them explore the potty and have the potty out all the time to encourage independence.
