Best Toddler Potty Seats
When you decide to start that adventure of potty training with you little one, picking the best potty is important. Small potties are the perfect size for your toddler and are less intimidating than the traditional potty. Many small potties come in a variety of colors, make sounds, light up or are your child’s favorite character. Picking a potty in a color or theme that your child is familiar with, can help take away some of the fears they have with using the potty. Comfort is just as important. Let’s face it, you will be sitting in the bathroom with your toddler on that seat for a long time. It will be much easier for them (and you) if they are comfortable while they are waiting to go. With so many factors involved, we at www.kidaplyandcreate.com composed a list of the best potties on the market based on product reviews, price and personal experiences. Check out our top picks for the best toddler potty seats on the market.

Potty Training Tips
Don’t Force them: Just because you’re ready for your child to use the potty doesn’t mean they are. If they are screaming and crying every time you mention the potty, they are not ready. It will be more difficult for you to force them and it will be traumatic for them. Don’t worry, no child goes to kindergarten in diapers. They will be ready before you know it, and then when they are finally trained, part of you will be sad that your baby’s growing up.
Aim: This tip is for all the parents with little boys. If you have a sprayer and he is making a mess, try using Cheerios. Place 5 or 6 Cheerios in the potty and ask your little one to aim for the holes. When he tries, reward him with a prize.
Don’t Switch Back and Forth: Don’t switch from diapers or pull-ups to underwear and back again. Once you choose underwear, stick to it.
Role Model: Moms take your daughter with you when you use the bathroom, dads do the same. Explain to your child what you are doing. If they see you do it, they may feel more comfortable doing it.
Read, Read, Read: Potty books are great and ease the fear of going. Children can relate to the characters in the story.
Let them Pick Out their Underwear: Letting them pick out the underwear they like will make them excited about wearing them. I learned this first hand. My daughter was giving me a really hard time about using the potty. She straight up refused. One day we were in the store and I decided to let her pick out panties. She picked out Minnie Mouse panties and wanted to put them on when we got home. She still gave me a hard time about going to the potty, but she still wore the panties and it definitely helped in the training process.
Bribery: We all do it. Tell your child if they use the potty, they can get a lollipop, small toy or whatever they are interested in. It’s OK, like I said we all do it.
Reward Chart: Tape a chart next to the potty and keep stickers in the bathroom. Every time your child uses the potty, give them a sticker. One they get 5 stickers reward them with a small prize. I did this, it worked.
