Should you choose a potty chair for your toddler, or should you save money and jump right up to the toilet with a potty seat on top? Unfortunately, this isn’t something that you will likely decide – your toddler will probably show an interest in one more than the other.
With a potty chair, it is easily portable, which means your child can sit on it in the living room while watching television, or sit on it in the bathroom while you are on the toilet. Potty chairs can be personalized with stickers, and you can even get deluxe models that play music!
With a potty seat, it is a toddler-sized toilet seat that will sit right on top of the regular seat. You should take care that it fits properly, as one that slides or shifts can scare an already unsure toddler.
One added bonus with a potty chair, is that the seat on the potty chair is usually a universal one that can also fit on top of the regular toilet seat. And many of the potty chairs can be used with the lid down as a step stool. So there is the added value of the potty chair if you are unsure which one your child would prefer.
