As a very germ conscious Mama, I was so excited when both of my little ones started potty training. Since my first was a little boy using public restrooms really wasn’t an issue. Flat out he wouldn’t sit, period so he would wait if he needed to make more than what he could stand for until we got home, even if it were several hours. Since this time he has gotten over it, but we still cover the toilet completely if he needs to go while we are out.
When I started with my little girl it was quite different however. Addie needed to go every 30 minutes at first and it didn’t matter where we were. I cringed at the thought of her sitting down, even with the seat covered because she always ended up touching the seat (gag me).
When we came upon the PottyCover, I was very excited at the thought of a disposable cover that would literally cover the seat! It covers the sides and fronts of the seat rather than just the top of the seat itself. They work for both girls and boys alike. Since it is large and covers the sides, I don’t have to worry about Addie’s little hands touching the sides of the seat. It stays on nicely with out any type of adhesive. Plus they are individually wrapped so they are easy to carry in a purse or diaper bag when you are on the go.
It has a soft non-woven fabric on the top that is coated in a layer of plastic underneath to create a waterproof barrier between the toilet and your child. There are other brands that are available but these are the largest on the market, and I love that there are no strips to peel.
The PottyCovers are a great solution for any family with children that are potty training or any children for that fact! I plan on ordering me a stash to take with us to Florida in August. The only suggestion I could make since I am a crunchy Mama and don’t like waste is that they be made from a recyclable material or to make they compostable would be even better!
