There are two types of potty seats, and either or both may be preferable for your own child and the lay-out of your home. The most important thing is that they interest your child.
These are small chairs that sit on the floor, have a hold and a removable pot that can be emptied.
- Pros: good for starting out, stable, easily moved from one bathroom to another
- Cons: have to be emptied and cleaned, child still has to transition to a big toilet some time
Toilet Adapters (also know as toilet seat reducers):
These fit over the big toilet and make the seat smaller. They usually require a step stool or ladder to make the toilet more accessible.
- Pros: Small, padded seats and handles make the regular toilet more comfortable and less scary, built in steps foster independence.
- Cons: More difficult for the smaller, younger kids to use
FEATURED: The 4-in-1 features a small chair that has a removable soft toilet seat that can be used on the regular toilet as progress is made.
