When it comes to toilet training, what works for one child might not work for all.
Some kids like Iya Villania’s babies might learn to go on adult toilets right away even if they’re less than a year old. Others, however, might be more hesitant, especially if they’re at an age when they can assert their independence more.
For children that need more convincing, some parents try cute urinals or potty trainers that might look less intimidating.
In a recent Smart Parenting Village post, Mommy Maria Ligaya shared this charming and “cheap find” for toilet training her toddler. She says this frog urinal is perfect “for ‘boymamas’ out there na nag sa-start or wanting to start potty training their little man.” The best part? It costs only P138!
She got it from Shopee, and you can search for a similar one with the key words “frog toilet training urinal.” Mommy Maria raves about how it really solved her toddler’s toilet troubles. “[It] lessens my frustration when it comes to pee time. Wala ng sapilitan. From ‘I DON'T WANT WIWI’ to ‘LET'S WIWI SA FROG’ na kami ngayon palagi.” She also says, “Additional attraction and motivation ‘yung spinning wheel na umiikot when aimed [at].”
Should you buy a cheap toilet training tool for your child?
This is a great alternative for moms who don’t have a huge budget for children’s accessories. Unlike other items, it’s not ideal to resell preloved hygiene items like this. So, in case it doesn’t work for the child, the cost won’t be too hard to let go of. Online shopping sites like Shopee and Lazada offer urinals and toilet training seats much cheaper than the ones seen in malls.
