My Pee Pee Bottle® was inspired by Alexandra, mom to our three year old daughter, Sofia.
Where Did The Idea Come From?
February 2007, our then two-year old daughter, Sofia, contracted Rotavirus. Though she recovered within a couple of weeks, I was panicked. I became extremely fearful of all toilets and wanted to make sure Sofia had limited exposure to public restrooms. I was particularly mindful of continued good hygiene and simultaneously desired a simpler, cleaner, and more-efficient way for Sofia to use the potty when we were out.
My Pee Pee Bottle® Was Born!
I had the specimen cup given to me by her Pediatrician in an effort to capture either urine or a stool sample, as he was trying to determine what strain of the virus she could have. I cleaned and kept using the cup when we were out because I really liked how it solved my problem; easy, on-the-go, safe. However, there was a time when Sofia filled the 4oz cup and it overflowed. As unappealing as it may sound, I then started to use a 9oz baby bottle that I no longer used as a drinking bottle, and that was close, but not perfect. The opening of a baby bottle can be narrow, not to mention you would never want the child to reach for their baby bottle and try to drink. My husband Troy, created the prototype for My Pee Pee Bottle®, and My Pee Pee Bottle® was born, and it solved my every wish!
