Training Urinal Roundup

Welcome to Potty Week. As Little Miss turns 18 months old, Mom has me researching potty learning options. First, let me say, Little Miss is not hermaphroditic. The following training aids for boys are just a few of the interesting things I’m churning up in my search for the perfect potty seat.

Potty Shield toilet training devicePotty Shield – This half dome
sits on the rim of your toilet, effectively turning it into a urinal.
Aussies will appreciate having a miniature replica of the Sydney Opera House in their loo, albeit blue.

Peter Potty – This is an adjustable and flushable training urinal. You’ll love the pride in Junior’s face when he graduates from this miniature urinal to using the real one in your bathroom.

Lil Marc Training Urinal For Boys – I like how they explain, "for boys." This one can be mounted to a wall for added realism.

WEEMAN Little Boy’s Toilet Trainer – This big cup clips onto the front of a toilet, allowing boys to enjoy a urinal-like experience. (Girls, you just don’t know what you’re missing!) The cup is "designed to hold an average infants full bladder."

Toilet Time Targets – Colorful animal-shaped tissue paper is placed into your toilet bowl. Then Dad shows Junior how to target and sink the animals. Mom can use a squirt gun to simulate Dad. All this gets Junior excited about urinating on animals. It may be wise to segregate family pets from Junior for a while.

    Sorry to burst your bubble Rob. The common belief is that toddlers are ready to begin potty learning around 18 to 24 months, but boys take longer… sometimes not getting the swing of things until they are 3 (sometimes 4) years old. Plus, boys are more likely to wet their bed.

    When Little Miss was born, I looked forward to the day I’d be done with diapers. Now that I’m thinking about helping her use a public restroom, I’m appreciating diapers for their simplicity and cleanliness. Public restrooms in our rural area are scarce, and in one town they are downright scary because they get abused by transients and aren’t cleaned very often. Suddenly I’ll have a reason to head to McDonalds. At least they stick to an hourly cleaning schedule.

    If you have a little miss you should be researching for ways for girls to potty train and ignore AJ cause while girls do generally potty train faster than boys are are less likely to wet their bed every kid is different and it does happen to girls too.
