As our babies transform from baby to toddler, with it comes a whole new host of challenges, one being “Potty training”
Little man aka “A boy with Aspergers who is now 11- years-old was by far the easiest to train, mainly due to the fact he suffers from sensory processing difficulties and therefore hated the feeling of being wet, hence the reason he was out of nappies as soon as he hit two! My daughter Alice-Sara now 9-years old took a little longer but was clean out of nappies by the age of 3. Now it was the turn of Harley, my youngest little duckling, a toddler in training so to speak.
We noticed that Harley took a slight interest in the potty aged around 18 ms though it was some time before we saw any potty action.
BecoThings heard about our mission to potty train Harley and contacted me via email to offer a review of the all new improved BecoPotty. This is a 100% biodegradable potty, meaning once our mission was complete we could use it to plant some pretty flowers in the garden and this environmentally friendly potty would disappear over time, meaning we would be doing a great thing for our planet.
With the mission to get rid of the nappies and get Harley in his cute bob the builder pants, sometime following his 2nd birthday, I agreed and awaited the delivery of this earth friendly potty.
BecoThings, informed us that they only had stock of the Pink potty and given I’m not the kind of mother who believes that pink is strictly for girls and blue is for boys I didn’t give a hoot and nether did Harley.
We decided to take the potty to Butlins when we went to the tots100 Christmas Party, sadly, the only potty action we saw was when big sister decided she needed to be sick and it came up tops as a sick bucket.
We celebrated the Little guys birthday on the 11th December 2011, still nothing! However as the fireworks marked a new year come the 1st January 2012, my Little Harley created his own fireworks at ours as he took to the potty and graced it with pee-pee for the very first time. This mummy was so made up I even sang the potty song… you know the one… from, “Look who’s talking” that adorable film from the 90’s!
Since then his been peeing in his “Pink Becopotty” on a daily basis! There is yet to be a number 2 (but hey one step at a time)! His still not in his Bob the builder underwear but is wearing pull ups. Oh and his actually standing over the potty to take a pee, like a real little man bless him, hence the reason I decided not to shoot the action!
So, was it down to the BecoPotty? Who knows! Nonetheless the BecoPotty is a great little pot, well made and the fact it’s environmentally friendly is an awesome little touch to this well made little earth friendly Eco potty.
