Mother&Baby Awards 2017 Shortlist

What they say: "Infant potty training made quick and easy. The Growing Up Potty offers 3 height options and grows with your child. This unique concept makes potty training simple and convenient by providing toddlers with greater independence and confidence throughout their learning journey.

"The height of the potty can be adjusted easily using the "GROWING CLIP" System inside. This will ensure your child's sitting positioning is correct and comfortable. Its stylish and ergonomic design has been developed with Child Development Specialists and encourages children to sit down and get up easily all by themselves."

The product it is great, I love the fact that the potty comes apart and to don't have to take the whole potty to empty it when it's been used making it really easy to clean when at home or out and about! The fact the it can be changed hight wise is great means when taking the potty out it fits under the pushchair easily.

How did this product make your life easier?     

The height change makes it easier for little ones to sit comfortably on the potty, meaning they are happy to sit a little longer, meaning less accidents are happening.

It doesn't look like a potty so when you're first starting out and potty has to be close to little one it doesn't look too out of place being in the living room! It's so easy to clean, it fits in the sink to give it a really good clean. 

What changes would you make to this product?

The only thing I would change is the fact that when we are out and about the potty is just in a carrier bag it would be really nice if it came with its own bag to pop it in. Maybe instead of it coming in a box it could come in a reusable bag! And the instructions on the box didn't really show how to move the height of the potty.

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I really liked this product and so did my toddler, she is quite tall and the changing height function really helped her use the potty cleanly. The design is neat and attractive. It is comfortable for her to use due to the soft shaping. It is very easy to use, the height change function just requires one movement.

How did this product make your life easier?     

Definitely easier than our standard potty as you can remove the bowl to empty, meaning less spills for me to clean up. My daughter loved the fact she could 'help' by carrying the bowl to the toilet to be emptied. Less mess and a toddler who is excited to use the potty is a good combination! She found emptying her bowels much easier using this potty compared to the toilet.

Would you choose this product to win?

It is better than the 'standard' potties out there as it encourages good bowel emptying due to the height change. The removable bowl is an excellent feature. Now I have used this product I will probably get rid of the standard one as this works better as is much more comfortable.

What changes would you make to this product?

At around £20 this product may be more expensive than other potties on the market. The current potty I have was a basic one under £5. Having used it I know it is probably worth the money but I would have been put off by the price when first purchasing a potty for my daughter. I like to have at least 2 potties, one upstairs and one down - that would mean forking out up to £40 for this one to be used.
