You’ll miss many things once your baby grows up, but changing dirty diapers is probably not one of them. Potty training horror stories are a common conversation amongst parents, but they may not stop there. Did you know that improper elimination in your child can lead to all sorts of health issues later in life? We’re not here to scare you, but we are here to educate you- with the help of an expert.
Dr. Steve Hodges, a pediatric urologist and author of “It’s No Accident”,“Bedwetting and Accidents Aren’t Your Fault”,“Jane and the Giant Poop”, and “The MOP Book”, has made his main focus dysfunctional elimination in children, due to the growing issue.
“A lot of the issues lead back to how they poop. We found that if kids don’t empty their colon fully, it backs up and leads to urinary tract infections, bed wetting, day time wetting, and not to mention constipation. It’s way underdiagnosed and way undertreated. I focus a lot of my career directly on this problem. You can’t teach a young child to relax their pelvis. You have to relax your pelvis to allow those muscle to empty well. You can’t just tell a three-year-old ‘relax your pelvic muscle’ so they have to be in the right position or nothing works right.”
Squattypottymusis a toilet stool designed to put your child in the natural squatting position right over your own toilet.
Squatting to eliminate is proven to straighten out your anorectal angle to prevent blockage of fecal matter in your colon and allow for a more complete elimination. Potty training can be difficult. Dealing with urinary tract infections, constipation, and bed wetting is even worse. Teaching your children how to properly eliminate from the start is the answer.
Often times, children are a little hesitant to try out the “big kid potty”. We go more into addressing their toilet fears here. Many fears are validated; I mean, no one wants to fall in or off of the toilet.
This is why we created a seat that securely sits on top of the toilet seat.
The hippo’s nose doubles as a step, allowing your children to safely and securely get on to the potty when they need to go.
We’ve made potty training a safe and comfortable environment to let those potty fears flush away.
Unlike other potty training tools, you won’t need to graduate from Squattypottymus. As your child grows, you can take off the ‘hat’ topper to create the perfect height for your child. It’s even light weight and easy for them to carry.
Creating a tool they look forward to using is key. With your order, you’ll receive stickers for you and your child to customize your squattypottymus your own way!
Dookie The Unicorn also makes a great potty training pal. Dookie is a stuffed unicorn with a stuffed rainbow poop insert. You know that if Dookie the Unicorn poops in the big kid potty, they will too.
