Potty Duck Called “Magical!” by Potty Training Expert From The American Academy of Pediatrics

September 8, 2017
-  The new water-potty toy for potty training, Potty Duck, has received a ringing endorsement from Dr. Barton Schmitt, MD, FAAP, a renowned leader in the field of pediatrics and author of American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for potty training.

"Potty Duck is the most magical potty training motivator available today,” says Dr. Schmitt, a professor of pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and the Children's Hospital of Denver. “I recommend Potty Duck in my potty training workshops and in my pediatric advice protocols for pediatricians and nurses."

Dr. Schmitt has written more than 100 articles on pediatric health care, including articles on gradual potty training.

Dr. Schmitt has pointed out that the biggest mistake parents make in potty training is doing nothing to prepare the child until the week they start toilet training. Parents can reduce stress and make training easier by viewing potty training as a gradual learning process, similar to learning to walk. For this reason, Dr. Schmitt recommends using Potty Duck not only for potty training, but also prior to the child actually starting potty training, so the child can begin learning through play.

"Potty Duck is a toy that can make potty training fun and faster," wrote Dr. Schmitt in his Toilet Readiness Training protocol.

Dr. Schmitt's endorsement of Potty Duck adds to the recent high rating of Potty Duck given by the developmental toy experts at AblePlay.org, a program of the National Lekotek Center based in Chicago, as well as the 2017 Toddler Product of the Year Award granted by Creative Child magazine.

Pediatrician Dr. Shelly Mann developed Potty Duck based on Dr. Schmitt's potty training guidelines. Hence, his endorsement is a fitting salute!
