Top Hat Potty Overview

The Traditional Top Hat Potty is my number one recommended specialty item for those doing elimination communication (EC) aka infant potty training with their babies. 

The Top Hat Potty is the well known traditional baby 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.


The Traditional Top Hat Potty Comes in 3 sizes.

The most popular size is the small and is often the only size you will need and then your toddler will move onto a sit down potty or a toilet seat. It is also convenient as a travel potty due to the small size it can be stored in a nappy bag while running errands.

We also stock a medium and larger size for older children who prefer this traditional shape potty and these will last right up to potty training.

  • Small 175 x 105 x100mm - Suitable for use 0-12 months
  • Medium 205 x 135mm 12-24 months
  • Large 190 x160mm - Older / large children

How do I use it?

The Traditional Top Hat Potty is placed between the parents thights while the baby is held 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.

You can read more about elimination communication in our EC advice section.

Brilliant little potty

I bought this on a whim. We were dabbling with EC with our six week old and this looked like a interesting option for in the go. It’s so much more than that! Even my sceptical partner has taken to it immediately as it’s so easy and intuitive to use.

Have just bought the medium top hat potty having had either the newborn or the small size (not sure which). Absolutely love the small one I've got, haven't tried the size up yet but I'm sure it will be great. Can't recommend it enough for newborn potty training. The bigger size has much less of a rim to sit baby on so will be interested to see how that pans out, but again very happy with the first size product so not doubting this one. Also great delivery service, came quickly!

Perfect just what i've been looking for!

I've been looking for a traditional Top Hat Potty in the UK for a long time. I was beginning to think i'd have to pay the huge price for the ones i'd seen on Amazon sourced from the USA and then I found this at The Nappy Lady. Absolutely what I wanted and in other bigger sizes if I need them in the future. It's the perfect size for EC with my newborn and I'm delighted. Delivery was next day and came beautifully protected so no damage in the post.The lady I spoke to on the phone was incredibly helpful. Thank you Nappy Lady
