Potty training update- My Carry Potty review

​I’ve mentioned our potty training ‘adventure’ a couple of times in previous posts (here and here)  but we’d never braved the outside, that is until we got our hands on a My Carry Potty  if you’ve not seen or heard of one of these ( where have you been?) It’s a cute little potty with its own lid and carry handle.

The MCP comes in 6 different styles ( 3 colours and 3 characters ) and also has a lock on it to stop any unwanted leaks and spills.

We’ve taken the MCP out with us over the past few weeks and although shes been using it at home for a while she hadn’t done anything apart from just sit on it while we were out, that is until our trip to London

I always ask her to have a try but never really expect much so when she sat on the potty and did a wee (while the train was moving) I was over the moon!
The My Carry Potty is so handy for awkward moments like that, on a train with a pram and bags and not being able to take her to the toilet without leaving all our things, the added extra of having a lid that locks so I can worry about disposing it later when I’ve got a chance is so great (just don’t forget it’s full and open it upside down 😂)

I will admit the potty is pretty bulky and it takes up almost all of our stroller basket (which isn’t the smallest) and when it’s over the pram handle I tend to knock people with it, the bulk also makes pouring the wee (and other things) a bit tricky sometimes too.

I feel like the convenience way out weighs those though!

The My Carry Potty is great for smaller kids that have just started potty training and may not feel comfortable on a big toilet, I felt with pops that even on seat adapters she would be really nervous on a toilet and if there was any tiny movement of the adapter she would be too scared to go on it for a while so being able to give her the MCP option was great.

  1. I’d choose the bumblebee design. We’ve just trained our 3 year old twins so this would be really handy. The only advice I would give is to let the child train when he/she is ready. We tried everything with my son and it didn’t work then one day he decided he didn’t want to wear a nappy day or night and is doing really well

  2. I would choose the Ladybird and would always recommend waiting until your child shows you they are ready and interested in potty training before starting

  3. I like the ladybird but I’m sure my nephew would live the bumblebee
    Perseverence and patience are needed in abundance and never force your child -they all do it eventually -the more stressed you are the more fretful your child gets-make it fun and a game

  4. The Ladybug is just gorgeous! So handy for when you’re out and about. My advice would be to take one of these everywhere you go! Oh, and have a lot of patience and a sense of humour helps. 🙂

  5. Love the ladybird. At the moment the best thing I have found is to let them be as independent as possible keep saying she is a big girl seems to make her proud and want to do it. We are out and about so much this would be great.

  6. Seems like a really good travel essential. We think out little man is getting to the stage where he needs potty trained so will be doing lots of reading up for tips!

  7. I’d love to win the cow potty for my niece hollie! I found with my little boy that rewarding him lots and not rushing him helped. Always remember every child learns at different speeds so don’t feel bad if it takes longer than you expected!

  8. I would choose the Bumblebee design, When Ellie was potty training we had two potties, one for her and one for dolly, worked a treat.

  9. Would choose the bumblebee my daughter favourite just now. Don’t really have any tips as me and my daughter have just started but patience and reward them with lots of praise. They all do it when there ready.

  10. I would choose the bumble bee potty! Try to start potty training during the Summer when you can let your little one run around in the training pants (no tights or trousers to pull down)

  11. I think I would choose the pink and white one. I don’t have any particular tips except don’t push it, they usually figure it out when they’re ready.

  12. My only tip is to wait until they are ready, my daughter recently got the potty out of the cupboard and used it without anyone telling her too, now she will only use the potty

  13. I’d love the ladybird one for my daughter. When I trained my son, my biggest tip is to keep them on hard wood floors rather than carpets!!

  14. I like the ladybird one. I think the most important thing when pottytraining is to praise all the time – go over the top – just so they want to do it again.

  15. I like the Red and Black Ladybird. Patience and praise for the child, as will allow the child to develop at their pace with the support of family.

  16. love the bumblebee! not really sure if you can give tips on potty training aside from just have patience lol! they all get there eventually – we did!!

  17. Very handy prize.Our two year old daughter is almost there with telling us when she needs a poo or wee…this would be very handy for day trips out and even just when we go to the park….

  18. I’d choose the bumble bee one. The only tip i really have is to wait until you know they are ready rather than rushing through because others around you are

  19. I would choose the bumble bee design for my nephew as he is approaching that age! I think it’s important to give positive encouragement and if accidents do occur not to get angry and accept that it’s all new for them and it will be pass.

  20. I would choose the bumblebee for my son Harry who’s about to start potty training my tip is be patient and take spare clothes everywhere with you

  21. I like the bee design. This is a fab idea, so ideal for when you are out and about. my top tip is to wait until your child is ready and not rush them into anything, they will do it in their own time.

  22. I would love the Ladybird, just because I like the colours, my best tip really is just to keep trying, at the end of the day they will do it when they are ready, but do keep trying as these days they don’t like them in nursery school if they are still in nappies .x

  23. I would choose the Ladybird for our little girl who we are about to potty train. My advice would be have lots of patience, your child will get there in the end.

  24. It would be the Bumblebee for us. So cute. My tip is to have the potty ready at home and talk about it casually, letting your toddler know it’s ready to use when he or she is ready to try.

  25. The lady bird. My baby has just turned one so want to start potty training in next few months. Her big sister hated nappies and was off her day time nappies at 13 months and nights at 17 months

  26. We’d chose the bumble bee design, my daughter’s only had a few gos on the potty so this would definitely encourage her! 🙂

  27. I love the bumblebee potty. This would be ideal for visits to granny too! My advice is to be patient and to praise your child as much as possible to make learning to use the potty a positive thing not a chore xx

  28. My little boy would love the bumble bee design. We had a bee cake smash for his 1st birthday last year and he loved the bees l..could of just been the cake though haha

  29. The bumblebee is cute.
    I’m starting to potty train my son gradually. He tells me when he has filled his nappy and having a full nappy bothers him so that’s one of the first signs they are ready. He’s only 18 months so I’m not going to rush him x

  30. I’d choose the ladybird! It would be great for my daughter who’s just potty training but still goes out with a pull up on as she’s not quite ready yet so this would be very helpful!

  31. I’d chose the Bee – so cheerful! My top tips are be patient. My boy was 4 yesterday and I’ve been potty training on and off for well over a year – so far unsuccessfully! I’ve learned to accept that everyone does things at different times and he has the character which doesn’t go hand in hand with using the potty / toilet! That said, he doesn’t have a portable potty so that could be an idea, I’ve tried everything else!

    1. Keep at it, I’m sure you’re doing all you can and like you said kids are all different and some don’t take to it as quickly or easy as others. Have you tried stickers and rewards? My sister in law is letting my nephew stick a sticker on his potty everytime he does one which is easier and costs less than reward charts etc. X

  32. The bumblebee one is our favourite. Potty training tips, hmm. Let your little one get used to the potty gradually – some children might not quite be ready so don’t worry if you have to wait a few months before trying again

  33. I’d like the ladybird design for my little girl. We haven’t started potty training yet but we have a potty sitting out so she’s used to it when the time comes

  34. id love the cow one for my little boy whos 2 and a half and trying to potty train at the minute id say my tip is leave him to himself to do his buisness but just stand outside the bathroom door 🙂

  35. I love the Ladybird Potty, my daughter loves little ladybirds, she calls them laillybugs! We haven’t started potty training yet, but the time is getting very close and this would be so perfect!

  36. I like the ladybird potty the best. I find lots of encouragement and praise works well. Stickers, pocket money and sweet treats were all great for praising and encouraging x

  37. The bumblebee is cute. I’ve started potty training my son so need all the help I can get. Having one of these pottys would make it more fun for him x
