Gear Girl: Finding The Best Potty

I'm about to start potty training my youngest (the end of diapers is near!) which means I've been spending a lot of time looking at potties. Whether you need a compact pot for a tiny bathroom or something with enough bells and whistles to keep your new pottier interested, I've got the perfect potty for you.

Compact potties - Bathroom space can be hard to sacrifice. Especially if you have a tiny bathroom or are a one-bathroom home. I'm a big fan of the simplicity of Bjorn's Potty Chair (1) which has a tiny frame, but still a high back for comfort. The one-piece Pourty Potty (2) makes emptying the potty a breeze, and you can't beat IKEA's new Lilla potty (3) at under $5. Try one of these tiny tot pots to save space without sacrificing function.


Multi-tasking potties - If you're not sure if your potty trainer is going to prefer a standalone potty or a seat reducer, choose an all-in-one that provides both options. Most also can be used as a stool as well. I'm a fan of the Munchkin Arm & Hammer 3-in1-1 Potty Seat (1) that multitasks as a standalone potty, seat reduce and stool. Plus it deodorizes with the power of Arm & Hammer baking soda because let's be honest - potty training stinks (in more ways that one). I used the Primo 4-in-1 Toilet Trainer (2) with my first two boys because I loved its simplicity and versatility. I also love the Summer Infant All-in-One Potty (3) that includes a toilet paper holder and wet wipes dispense to teach kids the important of good hygiene at the same time.

Bells-n-whistles potties - sometimes a song and dance from you just isn't enough. If your child benefits from some extra encouragement, try a potty with some added bells-n-whistles - often literal bells and whistles. The Fisher-Price Royal Stepstool (1) comes in blue or pink and plays a congratulatory song when your Potty Princess (or Prince) makes a royal deposit. If your toddler is a fan of a particular cartoon, look for a character potty like this Sesame Street Adventure Potty (2) that features words of encouragement from Elmo. The Fisher-Price Learn to Flush Potty (3) offers it all - lights, sounds, and music - to reward your child for his potty progress. Just make sure you have batteries on hand to keep all the bells ringing and whistles working.
