Question What type of potty to buy?

Should I just get a seat that attaches to the toilet or a completely separate small toilet?

I think it depends. My kids were more comfortable with and more willing to use a toilet their size so we started with those and then transitioned to the seat for the big toilet.

Re: What type of potty to buy?

We used both... Started out with a small potty bc the first few days when he was still learning I put the potty in the living room so he could
1. See it and remember to use it
2. Have very quick access

After a few days I moved it back to the bathroom. I quickly got tired of cleaning it out though and transitioned to a seat on top of the toilet.

Both my kids preferred the bjorn potty seats at first. Easier for them to sit down on it themselves without help and you can put it in any room you are in so they see it and go on their own. Once they were consistent we then went straight to the big potty without any insert just stools to help them get up.

I just got one that goes on the big toilet. If my girls hadn't gotten used to it after the first few times I would have gotten something smaller.
ETA: I got the one with a nice soft seat, and handles. I think it's called mommys little helper, or something like that.

Re: What type of potty to buy?

We have a "Squatty Potty" stool I bought for my husband (he LOVES it!) and the added bonus is that my daughter can use it to get up and down on the toilet by herself, so we skipped the little potty and started right out with a little seat on the toilet. We ended up with almost the cheapest one, but she picked it because it had Sesame Street characters, and letting her pick it herself really made her excited about the whole thing.

I like a small potty so I can take it with me.

Re: What type of potty to buy?

We have a small one piece green ikea one that we got off of amazon for cheap. I like how easy it is to clean! I don't like ones with many nooks and crannies. It is small, but my 2 1/2 yo uses it no problem. The only reason I got it is because we only have 1 working toilet right now, and with a family of 7-soon to be 8- she can't always hold it when the toilet is being used.

Re: What type of potty to buy?

I got a ring for the toilet for dd to sit one. She won't use the potty we have. Her older sister also preferred the toilet. Both thought the potty was a toy...

I liked mommy's little helper! Older dd used it from 2.5 to 4 years old and it let her go to the toilet on her own.
