    Default Potty versus toilet

    I'm starting to think about toilet training for DS once the weather warms up and am curious: did you use a potty or put a special seat on the toilet.

    Seat on the toilet. DD hated the potty, her legs were too long so she felt awkward and use to just pick it up and sit in front of the TV Suited me, I wasn't interested in getting rid if the contents.

    Yeah, could do without that mess. Did she have a footstool? Was she ever scared of the toilet?

    We have both. DS prefers the toilet. There are advantages and disadvantages to both. Potty is portable which is good, but you have to clean out the contents.

    I just bought a toilet seat with a step thing from Aldi for $15. DS (27 months) loved it and climbed up and down about a million times. Even managed to do a wee first go as well. I don't think we need a potty plus they gross me out having to clean it.

    Both ds's had a musical potty and loved it. The toilet being higher up I found to be a pain with ds1 as he needed help getting on and off and i was afraid he would fall at times, so I went straight to the potty with ds2. They have the kids toilets at daycare which ds2 uses all the time so he's not scared of it. Potty at home is just much easier.
