Make Potty Training Fun with Potty Duck + Giveaway

Thank you to Potty Duck for sending me the Potty Duck to try with my kids. All opinions are 100% my own. This post may contain affiliate links.

Potty training? God bless you. I have one that is potty trained and one that is nearing that time of great trial soon. With my first baby, I had heard stories of children who were successfully trained at 9 months old, children who were fully trained over a weekend of training, children who just loved their potty... not my kid. 

At two years old, I thought that should surely be enough time for her to be ready to give potty training a try. So, I bought a potty and some Elmo underwear and made a sticker chart and read all about potty training methods and we talked about the potty and what we were going to do... she hated the potty. She did not want to sit on the potty. She told me that she would pee pee on the floor but she would not sit on the potty. She did not care about stickers or marshmallows or m&ms... She did not like how the underwear felt and requested a diaper. 

So we gave potty training a break. For a year. And one day she told me - Mommy, I am big now, I don't want to wear a diaper anymore - and she went potty all by herself. She told me to get out of the bathroom. (mind blown by the way)

Fast forward to today - my second baby, Joanna, is getting curious about the potty. She wants to sit on the potty when anyone else is in the bathroom. She is a little younger than my first one was, but kids are all different so I am not surprised by anything at this point. I got the opportunity to test out a cute product called Potty Duck through MBP. I thought, YES. This is a great idea - a toy that teaches about the potty without the pressure of dealing with the real potty. Yet. 


Potty Duck is pretty self explanatory. The duck is a bath toy duck that you can fill with water and squeeze it out of a hole on the bottom - like it is peeing. Then, there is an adorable mini toilet that you squeeze the water into and it fills up and finally, you push a button on the top of the toilet to flush the water out of the bottom. 


The idea is so genius really, because kids learn through play. Sometimes the idea of the real thing can be a little overwhelming, like my experience with my first baby. She needed time to think about it and observe before she was ready. Potty Duck really gives kids the opportunity to learn about the concept without feeling overwhelmed - and it is fun! (I even did it a few times...) 


My littlest one, Sam even likes to play with the duck so it's a win win win! I recommend Potty Duck as a tool to let kids explore the concept of potty time in a fun and relaxed way - even way before they are ready to do the real thing. I learned my lesson with my first kid that it's got to be on their time, so for now, we are playing with Potty Duck and "thinking" about potty training for Joanna.
