TRM's Christmas Gift Guide :: The Squatty Potty Stool {Giveaway Ends 11/24}

Alright, you may think I'm crazy for including this next product in my gift guide. However, that's a matter of opinion and I really think this would be a hilariously funny, but incredibly useful gift for Christmas!

This review, my friends, is for Squatty PottyThey sell toilet stools and accessories that promote optimal colon health and healthy toilet posture. This is by far the most embarrassing topic I'm written about on my blog, but it's an important one! Talking about poo just isn't that easy, but each and every one of us uses the toilet each day so really it's a topic we can all understand and relate to.

My husband's been begging asking me to contact Squatty Potty for months now. Not becuase he needed it but because he likes interesting, useful products. Initially I said NO WAY because it's simply ridiculous (or so I thought). What the heck is a stool for your feet going to do and what's the point? Then one day while using the toilet I realized my elimination was taking a bit long (TMI, I know). So, I decided to humor myself by putting my feet up on my son's Elmo stool to simulate the Squatty Potty (he'll love that story some day). Let's just say it worked immediately and I had to tell my husband I didn't think he was crazy anymore. I just had to get my hands on a Squatty Potty to try the real deal. 
So how does the Squatty Potty help you? The Squatty Potty stools encourage a healthy colon and more effective elimination by changing the angle at which you do your business. Apparently our bodies are designed to squat for elimination, not to sit as we do on the toilet which is really a recent "luxury" in our history.
The squatting position in addition to a potty stool provides for the most natural elimination position possible by improving the anorectal angle as seen in this graphic. Simply sit down on the toilet, pull the Squatty Potty forward, put your feet on it, and voila! You're ready to experience the best elimination of your life. And no, I'm not kidding. If changing your diet isn't enough to help you in this department, healthy toilet posture could be the answer and this product is your best bet. And, it's completely natural!

Watch this video for a comprehensive look at what squatting can do for you:

We received two Squatty Potty stools to bring this review to you. The Ecco model is made from plastic and is the best choice for the whole family. It's sturdy, affordable and functional. It works well for our guest/kid bathroom. The Classic model is made from 100% recycled wood fiber. It's their best seller, has sleek lines and a trim look. Both are of exceptional quality, and I'm really quite impressed! The stools fit perfectly snug around and under your toilet. They don't get in your way when not in use either. You might occasionally tap your heels on it when you sit down on the toilet, but that's about it. After choosing your stool's style, you also choose the stool height of 5", 7" or 9" high depending on your toilet's height and your flexibility. It's recommended that you start with a 7" so that's what we received and I think they're the perfect height for us.  
Needless to say, we're "enjoying" our Squatty Potty stools and highly recommend them to anyone. It's one of those products that has you scratching your head at first, but then you realize it's worth! It's certainly can't hurt to try, and holds a multitude of benefits for a healthier you. I'm definitely curious about what guests will think about the Squatty Potty behind their legs while on the pot, but I think it's a great conversation. Hilarious at best, and informative at the very least!

I'm an all natural girl and I have to say that the Squatty Potty is a great gift for anyone that appreciates natural remedies, has a crunchy lifestyle, or loves hilariously useful gifts.

I think the ecco would be the easiest to clean. I hadn't thought about this but it makes sense. The urologist suggested we have our bedwetters use a stool to raise their feet when they eliminate as bedwetting and constipation are closely connected.

The Squatty Classic.

I like the Classic.

In Yemen, the toilets are actually on the floor, so you have to squat when using the bathroom. Makes it so much easier to ease constipation.
