Weeman toilet trainer for boy toddlers
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!
