The first thing you should consider when give your children a potty training is to buy a potty chair. You can let your child tag along for the ride. It is important for your child to feel like the potty chair belongs to him. They will certainly feel that way, so you can let them pick it out.
Types of Potty Chairs
Generally there are two types of potties for the children potty training that are available in the market. The potty chair that resembles a little toilet is the most expensive. It costs around $40 or more. It makes it easy for toddlers to sit down and get up. Plus, the lid gives your child good back support. It is a big favorite for a lot of parents.
Parents like it so much because the potty chair stands alone on a base. Some of these potties are decorated with dolls, trucks or bunnies. There are also some potty’s that play music. I like this type of potty because it is easy to use. You can also take it with you. Best of all, it has a lid so you can keep it closed on those good days.
The second type of potty-chair isn’t really a chair at all, it more like as a potty cushion. It fits snug over a full size toilet. The seat cushion is like for a little behind. It is a great transition either before or after potty training. There’s no need for cleanup the hole is also smaller so you don’t have to worry about your little one falling in.
Since the potty cushion is attached to the real toilet, then your children will have difficulties to use it because they would not able to reach it since it is on higher place. Therefore you need constantly helping or picking up your children. But to handle this situation you could use the potty ladder or stool for children that also can be easily placed in front of your toilet. So your children will be much easier to get on and get off from the toilet.
So, now you have some idea of the kinds of potty chairs that are out there, just choose which the best is for your children.
