When my daughter decided to potty train sooner than we expected, I knew we had to find something that would work for her since she was so small(only 22 months). We came across the Pourty Potty and really liked the design and the fact that it wouldn't drip when being emptied.
There is a hole in the front that works as a handle for pouring. The dip in the back is where you empty the contents out. We loved that it never dripped all over the toilet seat...even when we had some "helpers" think that they needed to pour as well.
She picked out blue but they also have bright pink, cream and a gorgeous purple. The handle in the front is big enough for Dad to help empty as well but it is also great because your hands never get dirty either. The plastic that it is made out of is really durable and strong. It is all one solid piece with no little ridges anywhere. I absolutely loved that. We have had potty's in the past that had so many nooks and crannies and cleaning them was awful. This can be easily rinsed or wiped without having to worry about some of the mess getting stuck in a corner somewhere. That was also great for keeping the stinkies away! We never had a problem with smells!
Here is the back where you would empty it. You can also see at the front there is a little spot for boys in case they pee a little too high. The actual seat has a nice width on it and my daughter felt comfortable on it and didn't worry about falling in. She also never had it stick to her bottom either. It rises up high enough in the back as well so they can figure out where to put their butt for a comfortable position.
The actual potty is not very tall but this worked perfect for my little mini. Since she trained so early she was still pretty short and this has worked great for us. I don't think it would work well for an older child or a child who is extremely tall for their age. I had my older kids sit on it for that purpose to see what might work well. My son (age 3.5) was able to sit on it but it didn't work for him to actually go. I'd recommend it for younger or smaller children. From what I have noticed though, babies who are cloth diapered tend to train sooner so this would work great!
On their website I found this "The Pourty is larger and has a wider flatter seating area than most one piece potties, but it is a little lower than some of the two piece and 3-in-1 potties. This allows the child to get into a good position to pee and poo. Medical evidence shows that squatting is the best position for emptying bladder and bowels efficiently and healthily."
Overall we loved this potty. It's size worked great for us and I loved that it didn't spill even when the kids wanted to help pour. I love how incredibly easy it is to clean and that it never left any odors! They also have a Flexi-Fit Toilet Trainer that looks incredible as well if your little one doesn't seem to want to try a little potty or are beyond that stage.
At what age did your little one train?
