First, children love the Squatty Potty. It is an excellent toilet training aid. It provides them with a place to support their feet which helps to remove the fear of falling. They also don’t have a need to hold onto the dirty toilet seat for balance.
The Squatty Potty is described as a wonderful health aid for the entire family. The Squatty Potty helps you to eliminate faster and more complete by putting your body into a natural squatting position over your own toilet.
Using the Squatty Potty during elimination will un-kink your rectum taking your body from a continent mode to an elimination mode. This will speed up the elimination process therefore reducing the risk of toxic build up of fecal matter left in your colon.
Using the squatty potty for elimination will reduce straining and decreases the pressure in the anal and rectal veins. The reduction of straining will help to heal and prevent hemorrhoids. It will also reduce the risk of bowel herniation and other damage to the lower digestive tract.
The Squatty Potty will discretely tuck under your toilet bowl when not in use. Its designed with a forward slant to ergonomically align the body for a comfortable and complete elimination. The White Plastic Squatty Potty is very durable, and easy to clean.
The Squatty Potty is 7 3/4″ high at the back and has a slight forward slope to 6 3/4″ in the front. The company says the size you order depends upon your flexibility and size of your toilet. If your toilet is 14″-15″, from the floor to the rim of the toilet seat, or shorter you will want the 7″ to fit properly under the toilet. If your toilet is 15 1/2″ or taller and your are fairly limber then the 9″ should work good for you.
