The best potty training toilets for toddlers

The importance of learning how to use the potty can be easily overlooked. You may think that it is intuitive for a child to use the restroom, but they still need a lot of guidance to get to a place where they can use the potty confidently. This is especially important when taking them out in public. Save yourself the embarrassment and trouble by training them properly at home.

Training potties come in two forms. There are potties that are standalones and can be placed inside the bathroom away from the main toilet. These can also be placed anywhere else in the house to be used. You can also get potty chairs that are placed on top of your toilet to make the toilet safer for your child to use. The latter is usually reserved for toddlers.
