Totally random though. Needed to buy a new toilet seat so we went to the store, just assuming we'd get the very basic one. And then we found this gem.
First time moms may or may not appreciate the awesomeness in this seat. BTDT moms who have children who use the big toilet totally will! We have a little potty seat that we hang on the side of the toilet that we used before but seriously, I wish I found this so much sooner. I think I can say I LOVE my toilet seat now! So much easier it's just all in one seat.

I don't have a toddler but I can see how that would be great!

We have that in both of our bathrooms and at grandma's house. It's a great idea but over time, the toddler lid pops off every single time they put it up or down and the kids have trouble getting it back on and it is very frustrating. It attaches with plastic hinges that just click on. I think over time the plastic stretches or something. I don't know. I now have the toddler lids just put away and they go on the regular seat. Oh and this is on all 3 toilets that we use this on so, not just a fluke.

That's good to know! We just bought this so hopefully don't have that problem soon, but that's ours too. Just clips in at the back. Stays up on to the lid of the "big seat" with the magnet in it.

After I wrote my post, I went to Amazon and read the reviews. They all say the same thing I did! Booo! I wish I would have read them before I bought it. Hopefully, they've improved it and you have better luck than we did!

Any idea how long (ish) you had it before you started having that problem?

It seems like the one at Grandma's (the first one bought) lasted the longest at about 9 months. Hers gets a lot of traffic. Ours didn't last nearly that long and one of ours lasted slightly longer than the other. They were all under a year, I know that.

Why buy this when you can buy a $10 toddler ring? that way you can take it with you and it fits on any toilet

I bought this so I didn't have to find a place to keep the toddler ring. Plus the toddler ring gets wet underneath and is just yucky to me. Same as potty seats that sit on the floor. If I want to rinse out pee and ****, I'll just change diapers. This one is such a great idea but, I am so disappointed with it. For taking places, I have a foldable one that fits in a diaper bag or purse so I can take it into stores and use on public toilets. But, really, I only used it with my first kid. They just learn how to use the regular toilet!

^ What she said. We bought the ring and have been using it up to this point. It's been ok, but it's kind of a PITA. So much easier to have it built in rather than find a place to keep the ring and put it on and off every time. Also, I never did take the ring with me anyway so that part didn't really matter to me.

I already have one for my toilet. It works like a charm but it's a real pain to clean around.

Oh I rinse Bella's off every time she uses it. Its just routine for me now. I find the potty seats easier than attaching something like this to my toilet. cool concept, just not for us! Let me know how you like it, Ashley!

I have honestly never used a potty ring. I had a little potty chair for at first..but my kids really quickly wanted to be up on the big potty and they just balanced themselves...and my kids have all trained at 2 and are tiny little people..lol

I saw one like that at Rona a few weeks ago that I thought would be neat to get when the time comes. It was a whole toilet seat though with a toddler seat built in. You just take off your current seat and lid and replace it with that one. I read reviews online that were okay, mostly said it was hard to clean. I think it was like $70 though.

This one is a whole seat with the toddler one built in too. Obviously different models, but this one isn't hard to clean at all. There's no little spots for icky stuff to get in so it's really easy. Got this one at Lowes and it was only $40.
