My Carry Potty

I’ve mentioned our potty training ‘adventure’ a couple of times before but we’d never braved the outside, that is until we got our hands on a My Carry Potty.

What is a My Carry Potty?

The My Carry Potty is a lightweight, leakproof and bag free potty which was invented and designed by a mum to help tackle the challenges of potty training. The potty comes in 10 different colours and designs and kids will love the bright and fun characters (you could let them choose their own as part of the potty training).

Which of the 10 My Carry Potty designs do you like best?

Not only does the

My carry potty

We’ve taken the My Carry Potty out with us over the past few weeks and although she’s 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… yes I speak from experience)

I did find the potty to be pretty bulky and it takes up almost all of our stroller basket, which isn’t the smallest. When it’s over the pram handle I tend to knock people with it too. The bulk of the potty also makes pouring the wee (and other things) a bit tricky sometimes too but it is so much easier and less to carry than an normal potty or potty that requires bags.

Have you started potty training, or are you thinking about starting soon?

I think the My Carry Potty is great for smaller kids that have just started potty training or kids that 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 the support and comfort that the My Carry Potty offers was great.

More potty training essentials you may find useful;

Until the next post.

We were sent the My Carry Potty for the purpose of this review, all opinions are our own.

    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

    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

    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

    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. πŸ™‚

  6. August 25, 2016 / 2:20 pm

    I would choose the ladybird .

    I found have a Puddle pad in the car seat in case of accidents really helped !!!

  7. August 25, 2016 / 10:27 pm

    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.

    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!

    This looks perfect for Fearne as she is doing potty training just now. The ladybug is so cute 🌺🌺🌺

    I would choose the cow design, my tip would be don’t stress the mess can always be cleaned up

  11. Rebecca Cusick
    September 4, 2016 / 10:24 am

    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!

    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.

  13. September 4, 2016 / 8:21 pm

    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.

    i’ve not started yet but will be soon so this would be to win x

  18. September 12, 2016 / 5:51 pm

    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)

  19. Isabel O
    September 12, 2016 / 5:52 pm

    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.

  21. Jessica Sawyer
    September 12, 2016 / 6:41 pm

    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

  22. amy fidler
    September 12, 2016 / 6:42 pm

    I’d choose the yellow bumble bee,when it comes to potty training be patient,and go at their pace x

  23. iain maciver
    September 12, 2016 / 6:45 pm

    the ladybird

  24. September 12, 2016 / 6:58 pm

    Reward every time they get it right with attention and maybe a treat.

    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!!

  28. Martina Pichova
    September 12, 2016 / 8:04 pm

    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.

    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.

    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!!

  35. September 13, 2016 / 10:33 am

    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….

  36. Michaela Hannah
    September 13, 2016 / 3:37 pm

    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

  43. Sadiyya Maryam
    September 19, 2016 / 2:28 am

    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.

  44. Kirsty Hosty
    September 19, 2016 / 7:03 am

    Have lots of patience and also a reward chart to encourage them

    Bumblebee would be great for my baby girl. We didn’t start the training yet but we intend to do it soon.

  47. Rebecca Smith
    September 20, 2016 / 11:43 am

    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

  48. Ema J Lowe
    September 20, 2016 / 7:17 pm

    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.

  49. Danielle Graves
    September 20, 2016 / 9:31 pm

    I’d pick a bumblebee, my best bit of advice is to try sty calm and patient and don’t chastise over accidents

  50. Wendy Becker
    September 21, 2016 / 9:07 am

    ladybird

  51. Jayne Kelsall
    September 21, 2016 / 12:57 pm

    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

  52. Gem Cook
    September 21, 2016 / 1:19 pm

    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.

  53. Susan B
    September 21, 2016 / 3:13 pm

    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.

  54. Lesley carnochan
    September 21, 2016 / 4:15 pm

    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

    • September 22, 2016 / 5:22 pm

      Wow that’s amazing. Did you find she still had accidents or was it completely clean?

  55. Jayne K
    September 21, 2016 / 7:19 pm

    Either the ladybird or the bumblebee for my granddaughter

    The bumble bee one is brilliant! Potty training in the summer was definitely easier!

  60. Lisa Pond
    September 22, 2016 / 6:58 am

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

  61. Shannon
    September 22, 2016 / 8:36 am

    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

  62. Kirsty Hunter
    September 22, 2016 / 9:19 am

    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

  63. Dawn Samples
    September 22, 2016 / 10:12 am

    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

  64. Gemma newton
    September 22, 2016 / 10:34 am

    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!

  65. September 22, 2016 / 10:37 am

    I’d choose the bumblebee design.

    My advise is to plan ahead when out so you know where all the toilets are and frequently prompt child to go as you pass one.

    • September 22, 2016 / 5:23 pm

      Such a great tip! We have half way locations when we go out and luckily (;)) it’s a coffee shop so win win haha

  66. September 22, 2016 / 10:41 am

    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!

    • September 22, 2016 / 5:25 pm

      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

  67. C Parkin
    September 22, 2016 / 10:54 am

    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

  68. lynn neal
    September 22, 2016 / 11:04 am

    I would choose the ladybird for my granddaughter, Bonnie!

  69. September 22, 2016 / 11:40 am
