How to use a top hat potty

top hat potty demonstration

Hi. It's time to share my favorite potty with you.

The top hat potty, or baby potty bowl, is s really the only thing I recommend as "essential" for ECing from birth or in the first year. It is discreet, comfortable, and lightweight.

Great for nighttime. On the go. Nursing. Travel. Car pottying.

Indispensable. Incredibly rare.

And, as it happens with everything wonderful, the manufacturer stopped making them last year. :(

I was so bummed about this that I'm making sure that never happens again by producing my own top hat potty...but it is even better than the old classics.

Preorders open *today* for The Baby Potty - a recyclable top hat potty which comes with a potty cozy and rubber grip.

Pre-order your top hat potty today >>

My goal is to raise another $5,000 to make this second round of manufacturing, including molding costs, happen. Please support in any way you can...even if you don't need a potty you can order a sticker or share the campaign with others!

This preorder is only open for 7 days (thru Feb 18), so if you think you might want one for you or a friend, please do not hesitate to place your order right away.

Also, I made you a video this morning about how to use the top hat potty with a 12 week old baby. It is 3.5 minutes long:

Resource Recommendation

EC While Out + About: Eager (or afraid) to try EC on outings or travel? This'll get you going.

You'll learn:

  • how to position your baby over the top hat,
  • various ways to use it,
  • how to aim if you've got a boy...and,
  • I demonstrate catching an actual post-feeding pee with Branson, 12 weeks.

Again, the preorder is only open for 7 days.

If you simply have to have one, you can go ahead and preorder here.

If you don't need one at this time, please SHARE this campaign over at indiegogo here. That helps a ton! Thx a bunch....
