  • My dd hated sitting on the potty so when i would go i would sit her on my lap, with cothes still on and say this is how we potty, and she took to that and then one day got up there on her own, but the soft seats is a good thing she will not sit on her little potty chair lol

  • There is no best age.

    Is she scared of the big toilet? Get her a little potty.
    If she's scared of her little potty, try an adaptor ring for the big toilet or get her a different little potty.

    From the reviews I've read, many children develop a fear after something on the potty (or adaptor ring) pinches them.
