iPotty – How to Potty Train Your Kid in the iPad Age

ipotty potty training

Check out one of the latest toddler tech products that launched at CES this year. It’s the iPotty. No, we aren’t kidding. It’s a toilet with a waterproof iPad stand. So yes, your toddler can play on his iPad on the toilet…. just like his daddy.

The marketer in me says SMART. The mom in me knows that potty training (which, I am TOTALLY avoiding right now) is a pain in the arse and anything to keep a kid entertained as they learn to understand the whole urinating in a toilet not your diaper thing. But then there is the other side of me that really doesn’t want my kid sitting on the toilet playing with an iPad.

But like all things parenting, this is one of those – do whatever works for you. I’m sick of people judging how someone else parents. And who knows… if my booger bear who is up for potty training could easily train with an iPotty – then I just may change my personal opinion about iPads, kids and toilets.

What Do You Think? iPotty – Yay or Nah?

    This looks like a really great invention…but I can see how it might lead to some potential issues down the road. Have you tested it out? My concerns are: what if your child refuses to get off the iPotty? Could the iPad suffer damages with that type of setup? Could this type of training lead to technologically dependent habits in adolescence/adulthood?

    Our Son is special needs on the autism spectrum, he gets lots Ipad screen time, so we figured let’s give the Ipotta a go since the last attempt with the Tinkle Toonz that’s supposed to be able to potty train an Autistic child failed, we ordered it only to find out that our son was too big for it and he might break it or hurt himself in it, the problem is that the seller on ebay only said up to what age, and the packaging didn’t make clear either So considering there are heavy todlers at age 4 they could be too big, but not considering the age and how big our son is as well as how wild he can’t get, was a big mistake and we had to send it back, they were apologetic and understood. Too bad it seemed like it would have worked otherwise.
