Potette Plus Potty | Review

Over the years I’ve bought a lot of baby and toddler related things that seemed like a fab idea at the time, then turned out to be damp squibs. Special bowls and spoons for taking out and about when weaning quickly got dumped in the back of the cupboard replaced by cheaper alternatives, buggy toys got ignored, bulky changing bags got left at home when toddler backpacks took over.

But a few weeks ago, when X decided he wanted to stop wearing nappies (at last!) I had a panic – what were we going to do when we had to go out?! I don’t drive, so I don’t have the luxury of lugging his potty everywhere with us. That’s when I was recommended the Potette Plus Potty – a fold up potty.


I was a little sceptical – it felt an awful lot like one of those faddy things that wouldn’t prove as useful as it first looked. Turns out, it is EXACTLY as useful as it looks, perhaps even more so!

Potette Plus Potty | Review

The Potette Plus is a fold away potty that comes with nappy bags with absorbent liners which means you’re not running around looking for somewhere to empty out a potty when you’re no where near a toilet. The official liners are quite dear, but there are plenty of compatible ones available.

Apparently you can also get a re-useable plastic liner to put in too, but I’m not sure how useful that would be on a road trip or when you’re out and about, as you’d still need to empty it.

And it’s so small but perfectly formed!! It fits perfectly under the buggy set up with a liner ready in case of extreme toilet emergencies! But it also fits in X’s backpack when it’s legs are folded in, plus it weighs next to nothing so he’s quite happy to carry it around for me – he’s very proud of it.

Not only is it a potty, but also a potty seat to use on toilets. The legs fold out sideways and stretch across the toilet seat to make a safe smaller seat for your child to sit on. It feels strong and safe, and X hasn’t had any problems using it even though he’s a little scared of falling in.

I’ve even managed to fold the legs out with one hand – helpful if you’ve got a clingy toddler holding the other one.

I genuinely can’t recommend this enough – it’s been a life saver a few times already, and I image it’s going to get a lot more use in the future too! We bought ours through Amazon, but they’re available at places like Mothercare, John Lewis and Kiddicare too.

If you’re on the cusp of potty training and wondering how on earth you’re going to manage to leave the house, this is just the thing for you.

 

Disclaimer: This wasn’t a sponsored review – we purchased this potty and wanted to share just how much we love it! We paid around £12 for the potty, and £8 for a pack of 30 compatible liners.

  1. We were so lucky with Amelia that she found the idea of a potty absolutely abhorrent (haha!) and went straight for the toilet, so I just had a little fold up toilet seat thingy that we got for about £2, and even then she’d declare “No Mum, I’m a big girl, I’ll just hold on, I won’t fall in, look!” But this looks amazing, and I will definitely remember this when it’s Wills’ turn! And also, van I just say that it’s really nice to read a product review just because you loved the product. #MarvMondays

    1. Oh bless her! X was terrified of the toilet – he fell into the kids one at nursery when we went to visit and since then he’s been pretty worried about them. I think he must have a narrow little bum lol! But this has really helped him use it. We’re going to stay with family this weekend and they don’t have a potty or anything there for us, so I think we’ll just take this.

      Any thanks for saying that! Sometimes I think as bloggers we can get bogged down by reviewing things other people want us to talk about, but at the end of the day people read our posts for advice and recommendations – so why not talk about the stuff that worked best for us 🙂 xx

  2. We lived in a big city when my daughter was toilet training last year and public toilets or hidden trees were not plentiful! The potette was a life saver on many occasions. It lived under the stroller at all times!! The only negative, I found it frustratingly difficult to snap the legs into place in a hurry. In the end I carried it around in a backpack fully assembled. But I still loved it.
