Squatty Potty : Health and Comfort Meets Modern Convenience

December 2013

When I was asked to try out the Squatty Potty, I must admit my eyebrow quirked a bit. I won’t tell you the images that instantly popped into my head. Probably in response to the look on my face, my friend showed me this video explaining what the Squatty Potty was all about. 

Come to think of it, I had learned years ago that it is better to squat then sit upright when going to the bathroom. However, since I live in America and have a standard toilet I had pushed the information aside since there wasn’t anything I could do about it. After watching that short video and seeing how simple the solution was, I became intrigued at the why's behind the product and agreed to try it out.

When the Squatty Potty (which is basically a special stool that you use while going to the bathroom to allow you to obtain that more natural squatting position on your toilet) arrived I was happy to note the simple and non obtrusive design and coloring of the stool. It was light weight, yet sturdy and stored easily against the toilet. Inside the packaging was a easy to follow instruction pamphlet with the hows and whys to use the Squatty Potty.


When I first tried it out I noted that the difference in sitting position though obvious was not uncomfortable at all. In fact with the extra support it was a lot more comfortable. I am happy to say that the first time I used it that it did what it said it would. Though I don't generally have problems going to the bathroom, it did make my whole going to the bathroom experience quicker and easier. What’s better it was just as easy for my 3 year old daughter to use as it was for me. I may just have to get one for every bathroom now.  

For those who want to learn more about the Squatty Potties like I did before using it, on their site they have some great informative Medical Cases, Doctors Endorsements, and other Success Stories.
