Little Legs Love Little Looster for Potty Training! (Giveaway)

I’ve always been a big supporter of toilet training children on the regular potty. I didn’t see the point in training my kids on a portable toilet, only to have to transition them to the big potty later. My boys always wanted to use the big potty anyway because that’s what “big kids” do! It worked pretty well, but one problem we often came across was that the boys were a little unsteady on the regular toilet because their feet didn’t touch the floor. This often stops kids from training on the big potty because they’re afraid they’ll fall in. Now there’s a fantastic product that takes care of that problem!

It’s called the Little Looster, and it’s a “booster for the loo”! This horseshoe-shaped stool surrounds the base of the toilet. Kids can put their feet on it while they’re using the toilet and feel well-supported. It also makes it less likely they’ll be gripping the germy lid of the toilet with their hands to keep from falling in.

This simple product is ingenious! No more washing out porta-potties because kids now feel comfortable on the big one. And you don’t need to move the Little Looster for adult use because it doesn’t block the way. When your kids have outgrown the Little Looster, you can dispose of it responsibly because it’s made of 100% recyclable plastic.

If you’re in the throes of potty training or will be reaching that milestone soon, check out the Little Looster at www.littlelooster.com! This product is a great addition to the tools available for successful toilet training!

  61. I like that I can still use the toilet without having to move it out of the way...plus there is nothing sitting on the toilet seat that catches urine (one of our biggest/smelliest problems).
