Potty Seat Or Potty Chair: Which Is Best For Your Potty Training Child?

Aug 17, 2007
Deciding when and how to potty train your child can be an arduous task for parents. Especially if this is the first child, parents have to decide how to go about it, how to do it, and how to deal with problems. A potty seat may be the ideal way to go for your toddler.

Why Would You Choose a Potty Seat Over a Potty Chair?

Potty seats look and feel a lot more like the regular toilet than a potty chair. This may be a plus in your toddler's mind, since he is using the big guy's toilet and not a baby one. When deciding how you want to potty train, keep in mind your toddler's personality and motivation.

A potty seat is simply a smaller, usually cushioned, seat that fits on top of and around the regular toilet ring on your toilet at home. You can find a potty seat in just about any color your toddler is partial to. You can also find a potty seat with many popular characters on them, including Sesame Street characters, Blue's Clues, and Dora the Explorer.

Potty seats, over potty chairs, also take up much less room. If you buy a potty chair, it will need its own spot in the bathroom. With a potty seat, the only thing you will need is a small area to store it when it's not in use. Usually you can fit the potty seat in your bathroom cabinet or even just on the floor beside the toilet.

It is probably easier for a child to use a potty seat on their own as they are at the right height for a child. As potty seats sit on the regular toilet, they may be more inaccessible to your toddler. It ends up being pretty high, so you will probably have to provide a step stool to help your toddler access the potty seat. Or get one that comes with a small step ladder.

Potty seats also have to be positioned in place and there can be a risk of them moving around which may make your child feel unsafe or it could pinch their skin if it gets caught between the two seats.

No matter which method you choose to potty train your toddler, eventually they will be successfully trained. It may still be some time before they can independantly use the toilet, but at least one less passage is rite-d.
