When I decided to move Sophia from the little potty in the middle of the living room floor to the regular toilet with a potty seat, we had a few problems. Obviously it was harder for her to take a break from playing to go all the way down the hall to potty. She had been simply going to potty in the middle of playing and could still keep her toys in sight. This was a big thing to overcome, but we did it.
The next big challenge was the fact that the toilet is high. She had to use a stool to climb up, but because she’s so little, she needed a special stool. She climbs up, then has to turn around and then sit down. Try doing that with a tiny stool like you find in the “potty training needs” aisle at Walmart. They’re all so small and extremely un-steady. We weren’t able to find any stools that fit all the criteria that we needed for a Potty Stool… sturdy, large enough for her to be able to turn around on, and tall enough… until we received the Looster Booster from Little Looster!
Monica, the Mom behind this genius product, has made such a wonderful stool and let me tell you why. It’s tall, super sturdy, and wide! Right now, since Sophia is still having to climb up on the potty, we keep the stool scooted out from the base a bit more than it’s meant to be. But, when your child is a little more steady about using a regular potty, the Looster Booster is designed to scoot back against the base which – get this – is designed so that adults don’t have to move the stool to use the bathroom!
The Looster Booster is also designed to give little ones the confidence in using a regular size potty because their feet no longer dangle but can sit on the stool comfortably!
Final Thoughts: This stool increased Sophia’s confidence of using a big potty. She doesn’t have any fear of falling and can completely get up and down on it with no help from me, which is a huge help since I have an infant in the house too! The Looster Booster is made in the US and will be sticking around our household for a long time!
Buy It: You can purchase the Looster Booster from Little Looster on their website, or at a variety of retailers – including Babies R Us, Bed Bath & Beyond, & Walmart, for $34.99.
