What do you get the toddler who's outgrown his hipster "iPood" onesie? An iPotty, of course.

Yes, you read that correctly. At this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, CTA Digital displayed its newest offering for the plugged-in potty trainer: The iPotty for iPad, which, according to CNET, is essentially a $40 plastic toilet that's been souped up with a holder (complete with splash guard) for Mom's or Dad's iPad.


Wow.  What do you all think of this? Would you give it a try while potty training your little one?

With new innovations and inventions coming up each day there is no place in the world where one can stay without electronics but I believe to use the minimal electronics and gadgets for my kids as long as they do not grow up well.

Well considering my ipod touch went swimming in the potty to see if it could float, NO electronics are allowed in the bathroom no matter what, and this wouldn't change my mind.  They can take a magazine or book, but sorry, no more electronics.

I can see how it would come in handy! This way you wouldn't have to worry about it dropping in the potty!

That's really funny!  N (whom I nanny) took a very long time to potty train.  I think he maybe got started before he was really mentally ready (totally physically ready), but it was quite a long process.  The strategy was to have him sit on the potty until he peed.  In doing this, he was able to watch shows on the ipad.  That holder would have come in handy!
