Squatty Potty sells different toilet stools. Gina’s Library of Reviews is happy to bring you this review of their Ecco 9″ stool.

My Thoughts on the Ecco stool:

Bathroom issues are private and something we don’t really like to talk about. A lot of people have problems with digestion and bowel movements. I personally suffer from IBS, those symptoms are horrible. Studies have shown that if you squat to release your bowels, you’ll have an easier time doing so. I have to admit this is true! I have had to exert a lot of pressure before to totally empty my bowels. When you exert pressure you can cause stomach cramping, pulled muscles, and even hemorrhoids. 

Our colons have a natural kink in them so that we don’t have accidents. When in a sitting position on the toilet the natural kink is still there making it harder to go. If you squat, the kink is straightened out and it’s easier for a complete emptying of your bowls. 

There are 5 medically proven problems with sitting to on the toilet as opposed to squatting. They are:

  1. Constipation
  2. Hemorrhoids
  3. Colon Disease
  4. Urinary Difficulty/Infections
  5. Pelvic Floor Issues

There is nothing to put together to use this, it’s one piece that already comes assembled. You simply put it in front of the toilet. I love that it pushes against the toilet out of the way when not needed. I am in total love with this product and recommend everyone to have one. There are 4 different models to choose from and they range from $25 to $80.

    I like that it hugs the toilet and blends in

  3. Erin F

    I like that it pushes out of the way while still being available for use, so people in the house can choose to use it or not, without a big production.

  4. Valencia

    What I like the most is the video and illustration. For some reason, it cracked me up. I also like that it eliminates strain. Any help I can get with my IBS is appreciated.

  5. Jill H

    I like that it helps you to go naturally and not in an awkward position

  17. Robby Rob

    Just heard of this the other day from a colleague. I think it’s a great idea and makes lots of sense. I like that it helps things flow more naturally, and easily tucks away under the toilet.

  18. Angelica

    I love squatty potty! It totally helps with the flow. We could definitely use a second one for our other bathroom! 🙂

  19. DailyWoman (Lacey)

    I like that you can store it right under the toilet.

    I really like how it hugs the toilet.

    Commenting for the Squatty Potty Giveaway! Awkwardly in need! I’ve heard very positive things and am super excited to try this product. As a college student with IBS, I can’t really afford to drop $30 but this product would definitely relieve some tension between me and more roommate over sharing the bathroom!

  22. Wendy Caddy

    I like that it tucks up to the toilet.

  23. Stephanie Liske

    I like that it’s better for you to go this way.

    I LOVE everything about it! That it helps you go with ease and no straining and how well it wraps around your toilet without taking up any extra space in the bathroom when not in use.

  25. kim keithline

    I love that it eliminates straining and makes it easier to go

    I like that it hugs next to the toilet and can easily be moved out of the way.

  27. susan smoaks

    i really want this, i love that it makes bowel movements easier for people with constipation problems, it seems natural to squat when using the restroom

  28. david paremske

    Easing discomfort.

  29. jules m.

    the puborectalis muscle creates a natural kink making elimination strained while we are sitting. Squatty Potty® relaxes things and makes elimination easier and healthier.

  30. Stephanie Larison

    I like that it works with any standard toilet, nothing extra needed to use.

  31. Jenette Gardner

    So I’m happy to get a chance like this.

  32. Margaret McLaughlin

    I like that it stores next to the commode.
