I want to buy one of these Weeman for my grandson, and was wondering about feedback, and what you thought of it??

I know what you are talking about and I've been contemplating getting one....though at the moment I think we might stick with the potty and then work on moving to the toilet. It might be introducing too much right now since we have just started TT and he already doesn't like the toilet much. (And I don't think I could stand the extra mess that might come from not aiming in the weeman properly!!)

I have no experience with them but they look like a great idea - my son still sits on the loo to wee but on the few attempts he's had at standing, it's been a tad 'messy' laugh.gif

Just an aside, but around what age should they start standing to wee?

With Jaidyn, he used to just sit on the toilet, till he was about 4. By then he had a bit more control over things at that stage, and could practice standing, without too much mess. We also put one of those floaty things in the toilet for him to aim at laugh.gif I think it would have been a bit messy to start with standing, but they are all different I suppose.

We have one but haven't used it yet. It looks great, but at this stage we're still trying to get the whole potty thing happening. I think it will be fantastic once he's gotten the knack of going to the toilet.

Sorry don't have have experience of the weeman. Hayden one day announced he was going to stand to wee from then on, he stood on the stool used to get high enough to climb on the toilet and had surprisingly good aim!!!

I was thinking the same as the others on here about getting the potty right first, but I know a little boy that uses one he will be 2 at the end of this month. I thought that is amaizing, and a boy as well! smile.gif

I saw them a while ago but never got one. Hamish was scared of the toilet and wanted to use the potty and I thought it best to keep it at that initially. Then he wanted to do 'daddy wees' and daddy does not use the weeman, he is very much not into things being separate for him. I even got the sorbent toilet tissues for him thinking it would be easier - but he won't use them as we don't!

What happens if they decided they only want to wee in the weeman - and then you don't have one?

I'll wait till Will is tall enough to wee in the toilet (standing on a step I guess) - he wouldn't be tall enough yet. Until then he can sit - it's easier when we are out and about anyway.

Melissa we used a step with Hamish, and when out I would ask if if he needed mummy to lift him and he was happy with that...surprisingly given he is a funny little thing with habits. Now he doesn't need the step at home and its really rather cute!

We used a weeman for a while & DS loved. Gave him a bit more independance & when he was in a bit rush in the early days of TT it eliminated having to move stools etc. Now as he is older its just as easy to wee straight into the toilet so its been put away.

We also have the Wee Targets (black dot that hangs in the toilet and when weed on a pic appears then once flush goes black again). It lasts about 3 mths.

Highly recommend both products. And no issues as regards weeman at home & not elsewhere. Probably the same as some toilets are small if they have kiddie ones, some are big, some have urinals, sometimes its a potty ie lots of different toilet experiences LOL

cheers
Dee

I've got an unused weeman sitting in the cupboard if anyone wants to buy it from me laugh.gif I forgot I had it and just a week ago, Hugh saw DH standing up and decided he wanted to as well and now he does smile.gif He can reach without a step and everything - so cute - and aim is pretty good as well.

I bought it because my Auntie raved about it so much but never got the chance to use it rolleyes.gif
