Weeman toilet trainer for boy toddlers

June 13, 2012

The Weeman boys’ toilet trainer by Tippitoes is a mini urinal to help little boys learn to use the toilet. I wanted to mention this product because it has led to a real breakthrough with toilet-training my 3 year old son.

We were having great trouble persuading our son to take a break from playing in order to go to the toilet. He just did not think that going to the toilet and sitting on it was a fun thing to do.

But he is much more enthusiastic about doing a ‘standing up wee’ using the Weeman. The Weeman is a mini-urinal that clips to the toilet, allowing my little boy to wee standing up. So much more exciting! And he is so proud of himself every time he uses it. Now our son rushes to the toilet when he wants to wee, without needing any prompting or persuasion.

The Weeman was bought from Babykind. This is an extract from the blurb on the Babykind website:

Being the perfect height for potty training boys it allows them to see themselves weeing and they quickly learn to associate the sensation of emptying their bladder with the act of urinating and where they should do it. It is also a lot easier for them to aim at then sitting down on a potty when things tend to “pop out” at the most inconvenient moments! When your little one has used the Toilet trainer simply flip it over into the toilet – flushing the toilet will clean it out and you can flip it back outside the toilet again for next time.

So not the most glamorous of products perhaps, but we’re thrilled with it. After weeks of ‘little accidents’ we finally have success!

Update November 22nd 2014 – this is now available for £7.03 from here.

    Sounds like a good product. Tbh though, the main problem I’m having with my 2 1/2 year old son is with number 2s though. He’s fine weeing in a potty but he just ‘can’t’ go number 2 in there. Any tips on how to get past this hurdle? Been reading all about Pirate Pete and his potty together this morning but he’s still not convinced!

      We haven’t completely cracked that one yet either. We tend to know the likely time(s) of day and remind him. Plus if we spot a ‘certain expression’ on his face he gets marched to the toilet. I wonder if any other readers of this blogpost have any tips?

    I’ve not heard of this product before it looks good! It would certainly reduce the amount of cleaning that I have to do. This morning I was awoken by my son yelling for me, I went in to find him in the bathroom with wee everywhere, I think that he had stood up at the toilet to go, but had done it facing the wrong way!

    We had terrible trouble with the number 2s! I actually blogged about it if you don’t mind me posting a link, please remove it if you do. Basically, sit the little one on the toilet/potty when you think that they are due and get them to blow some bubbles, it worked wonders for us after about 6 months of cleaning poo out of the pants every day. Luckily he was pretty regular and tends to go every morning after breakfast, so once we’d got it out the way it was okay to take him out without an accident.
