3 Reasons Why A Baby Potty Chair Makes Potty Training Easier

Your different options for getting your child to potty train are:

  • Letting your child use the toilet without a special baby toilet seat – seriously this is really not advised when you first start potty training as your child will not be comfortable or secure enough.
  • Letting your child use the toilet with a special baby toilet seat
  • Letting your child use a potty
  • Letting your child use a baby potty chair

Getting the right potty training equipment can mean all the difference with a baby potty chair being first prize.

  1. A Baby Potty Chair Is Just Like A Mini Toilet

Babies and children learn best by emulating their parents, it is how they do most of their learning. This means that giving them their own mini toilet that mimics the real thing as much as possible will make the whole potty training experience so much easier.

One of the recommended ways to get your child to use the toilet is to let your child come with you each time you go and to do what you do at the same time. So keeping your baby potty chair in the bathroom is a great idea, when you go to the toilet your child can sit on the baby potty chair.

You can also call the baby potty chair “your toilet” when speaking to your child instead of potty or potty chair, this will encourage them to use it even more.

  1. A Potty Chair helps your child sit for longer

A potty chair is not only designed to look the same as a toilet, it is also designed to be comfortable and stable for your child.

A normal potty is lower on the ground which is not a comfortable seating position. A toilet is too high and too big for a small child, even with a special toilet seat on the toilet it can be tricky for your child to get on and off, as well as to balance.

Potty chairs are the perfect height for your child. They are stable and have a back rest. Some of the higher end potty chairs have arms rests and other awesome features too.

One of the biggest challenges when you first start potty training is getting your child to sit on the toilet or potty long enough to have any success. Children of that age have a notorious short attention span and are very active.

Having a comfortable and stable potty chair will provide a comfortable and stable place for your child to sit helping your child to sit longer.

Giving your child a potty training book to read or a favorite toy to play with while sitting on a comfortable potty chair will drastically improve the chances for quicker potty training success.

  1. A Baby Potty Chair Is So Much More Fun

A basic potty usually just comes in different colours with maybe one cute picture on it, while a baby potty chair can come with so many different fun and exciting features.

Just take a look at this cute and funky baby potty chair, it is so funky and close to the real thing even down to the toilet paper holder!

Having a fun potty chair that has cool features that will attract your child’s attention and hold it as long as possible will make potty training easier.

  1. Good to know.
    Tx for sharing Lynne.
    I saw a really cool one for the boys where they have to pee on a turning thing… difficult to explain.
    But i know you get one that makes music the soon as your little one pees.

    • Oh my gosh, I can just imagine how the kids would love the music playing while they wee LOL.

    • That sounds really fun Marisca! I told my wife about and she loved it. could you share the brands you happen to get the Baby Potty from? and how it worked out for you? Hopefully to get something similar

  3. I like the potty train chairs i agree its more practical like they have their own toilet and learn to use it like he will be using a big toilet as he grow up…and the colours and picture potty chairs makes it fun and will be much more excited for the little bums to use and sit on. Im still getting to the potty training.

  4. I need to start training my boy in about 3 months. Was thinking of getting one of those that you put over the toilet with the little steps, but after reading this I might consider getting him his own potty. Thanks for the advice!

      We actually used both a potty and a potty training seat with steps for the toilet, plus with my son we also made use of a little training urinal that you stick to the wall.

      Maybe it was an overkill but it worked for us because my kids could chop and change with whatever felt right for them at the time. My son didn’t want to poop in the toilet for a long time – he felt more comfortable on the potty and he loved weeing in the urinal. He took longer to use the toilet while my daughter wanted to be a big girl almost from the start and wanted to use the big toilet.

  5. good to know.
    im trying to potty train my daughter but she refuses. she’ll tell she wants to go toilet. 20 minutes on the toilet and nothing, 10 minutes later she messes her nappy!! it is so frustrating. maybe i should invest in a potty!!

  6. My two-year-old daughter also prefers the potty seat, I think because she can climb off by herself, she also removes the pot with pee and brings it to me when she is done. She felt unsafe on the baby seat on our toilet and hates the fact that she cannot get down herself, I also found that that seat starts getting uncomfortable after she has been sitting on it for a while.

    I have seen a great potty for traveling. It looks like the porta potty used for camping, and has a lid to cover the bowl area and closes to be carried like a suitcase.

  8. Potty training is one of the most difficult times in parenting.
    Some parents are lucky whilst others are not so fortunate and face a real uphill battle.

  9. this clears so many questions i had about potty training. when should i start?

    • I recommend starting in summer for starters! And if you have a girl maybe around 18 months, boys are often later. However watch out for signs of readiness. Click here to read potty training tips.
