Potty Chair - 8 Tips on Buying a Potty Chair

Eight Tips on Buying a Potty Chair

By GreatDad Writers
...

The Potty Trainer
  • Sturdy- The chair must be able to be climbed on, be stood on, and be sat on without tipping over.

  • Collection Device- The best waste collector is large and easily removed to avoid spilling.

  • Arm Rests- These should generally be avoided since they allow the chair to tip.

  • Removable Seats- Potties with removable seats that adapt to a regular commode are nice for transitioning and comfort the child.

  • Musical Potties- Usually distract or confuse the child, but may make the potty fun.

  • Potty Monkey
  • Portable Potties- A nice feature but usually less stability and comfort.

  • Splash Guards- Guards for boys have caused many injuries and they are not necessary when a child leans forward.

  • Rewards- Always a good idea for young children who need positive reinforcement.
