Summer Infant - Story Time Potty

One of the "transitional" stages that I find the most frustrating is potty training.  With Bid it's been the bane of my existence.

Our potty training journey started last summer when she decided that sitting on the potty was fun.  She would sit on it every morning till she went, and she was so proud of herself.  She wouldn't sit on it later in the day, but we were happy with a baby step.  Then we decided to see what would happen if we let her wear undies all day.  She had so many accidents and absolutely hated it.  In one afternoon Bid went from using the potty regularly to refusing to even get her diaper changed.

Over the last couple of months we've been working on trying to get her more comfortable.  We've had a potty party, tried different reward tactics, all with no result.  We decided to try and make potty time more fun with a new potty from Summer Infant - The Story Time Potty.

The Story Time Potty is a cute frog potty designed to keep little ones entertained. All you have to do is push a button and the potty actually reads a story to the potty trainee.

For the first time in month, Bid has shown in interest in the potty again. She loves to sit down and listen to the Freddie Frog Story. She still doesn't go all the time, but there has been a definite improvement.

Bid has had a few different potties and she thinks that this one is by far the most comfortable. She doesn't get weird lines on her legs when she sits on it for too long.

To Buy - As a mom I love this potty. It's easy to clean and wipe up.  Also the bottom of the potty isn't open, so there are no "accidents".  The potty also features.
  • Built-in splash guard for boys
  • Removable trainer with handles keeps the training process going when transitioning to the adult potty
  • Base of potty can be used as a step stool
I would definitely recommend it!  For more information on this or any other Summer Infant Product, you can also check out their facebook or twitter pages.

I received a product to review from the above company or their PR Agency. Opinions expressed in this post are strictly my own - I was not influenced in any way. I received no monetary compensation for this post. 


  1. Potty training... Ugh! We're workingon it with our 18 month old? He will go sometimes but other times he's not interested at all. It even extra frustrating for us b/c by 18 mos our oldest was completely trained. Eventually he will get it down and I'm so looking forward to it.
