Big Potty or Potty Seat?

I know each child is different, but just wondering what your child's preference is when potty learning: their own little seat, or sitting on the big potty? Thanks so much!!!

My los who are potty training now liked the training potty for about 5 ish weeks, and are now just starting to want to sit/stand for the big potty. They don't mind a potty seat though. I started one week after they turned 2. They are now 25.5 Months old.

Re: Big Potty or Potty Seat?

We have both. Sometimes the potty on the floor is nice since you can relocate it (this can be helpful if you are working on learning to use the potty but if your bathroom isn't that close to the room that you are spending the day in) but my son is big for 3 so he really fits better with a seat that goes on top of the big potty in the bathroom.

We have the Baby Bjorn Toilet Trainer that goes on top of the toilet and also the Baby Bjorn Potty Chair. I have tried other brands of potties and potty seats but we just keep coming back to the Baby Bjorn potty products. They also sell a smaller Smart Potty but that is too small for my son. That would be better for EC with a baby or a very petite toddler.

we have both but Margaret prefers the bigger potty. We have one of those built in toddler sized seats.

Re: Big Potty or Potty Seat?

We have a potty that sits on the floor and the seat that goes on the big potty, but neither have gotten much use. DS1 didn't like those at all, and DS2 is currently just starting potty training and he seems to prefer to just sit on the big potty as well.

Re: Big Potty or Potty Seat?

Thank you mamas! My LO has been preferring the big potty with a cushy seat, but we have two simple potty seats that are nice to have wherever we are for quick access Still working on #2s, he will pee in the potty but just does not want to sit on it to poo! But that's another thread.

We are just starting to try to potty train our almost 3 year old and so far he prefers a seat on the big potty. He is a big boy, though and the little potty just seemed too small for him lol
