What kind of potty do you use?

Do they prefer the big potty or a little one that is their size?

At this point my son totally prefers the big potty I think. Probably because that is what we use. He likes his little potty now as a chair

She will use either, but we use a little potty since she can't get on the big one by herself. I don't see the point having her use the big potty, if we still have to put her on it every time.

Her mom uses a step stool for her to get on the big potty. I've seen best results on the little one though, so that's what we use.

Special thanks to AlexAiden Mommy for my precious siggy

Big potty. I use an insert when they first start but they figure it out pretty quickly.

big potty. if i'm going to clean out a little potty, i might as well change a diaper.

with sam, we used an insert until he could manage sitting backward on it by himself

We have both but I've been using the small one so far. Mainly for consistency as she uses a small one at preschool.

Thank you Helen for my beautiful siggy!

We use both but only have a little one in one bathroom so she perfers the little one when we are in there otherwise she doesn't really care. The little one is easier for me since I don't have to hold her and get down on the floor.

we have an insert for the toilet and then a little potty. she uses both. I prefer when she sits on the toilet since I don't have to clean anything, but I always put toilet paper down in the little potty so when she poops I can just dump it out and then spray & wipe it, and its never really 'dirty' kwim?

We have a little potty and a cushy seat for the toilet for her. She is not tall enough to get on to the big toilet by herself, so I wanted her trained for the little toilet so that she could get the hang of going by herself and then I would go in and help her wash her hands/wipe ect........
She uses the big toilet at her daycare.

DS hasn't even touched the little one, lol. He prefers the big one with the kid seat insert thing on top. He still sits down to pee, but I think he may be ready to try standing up....
