Top Hat Potty Overview
The Top Hat Potty by W Free is my number 1 recommended accessory for those doing elimination communication (EC) with their babies. The Tophat Potty is the well known traditional potty used in Asia but now made available to the UK via The Nappy Lady.™
A Top Hat Potty is effectively a super small potty and is the best potty for EC for use from newborn. It is a great option and will give you the best experience as your elimination communication journey starts off.
The potty is ideal for EC baby potty training at home, out and about, travelling as well as just a handy small potty for smaller children. Even if elimination communication doesn't work out for you you can continue to use your top hat potty as an everyday potty.
Top Hat Potties have a wide edge so comfortable for baby to sit on and does not press into the skin.
It is not easy to put such a young baby onto a toilet seat and even with the use of a toilet seat reducer it is tricky. Top Hat Potties make diaper free baby training simple.
Measures approx. 16.5cm x 22 cm
The Top Hat W-Free potty is narrower and smaller than our Top Hat Easy Peasy Potty. This makes the W-Free better for younger or smaller children.
How do I use it?
The Top Hat Potty W-Free is held between the thighs of the parent, while you position baby and hold baby over the top. You can also buy the recommended potty accessory the Top Hat Potty Covers aka potty cozy. These make the edge even softer and less of a shock from cold plastic.
You can use your top hat potty right away with you newborn baby. Natural infant hygiene is a practise that starts as early as possible following birth.
