Eight Tips on Buying a Potty Chair

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 14-08-2007

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.
