  • the have a seat that fits on your toliet, my kids used it we never had a seperate potty chair ( ewww so dont want to clean that lol) walmart has them for around 10 dollars. you set it on the seat and it makes the hole smaller , i even had one with handles. you dont have to attach it to the toliet you just lift it off and set it on.

  • yeah you can depending on ur child, my oldest only liked sitting on the big potty with the seat attachment but my middle only liked the seperate potty because the big toilet was to high for him to climb on by himself and he wanted to be independent and get up and go by himself without my help lol

  • i had them sit on the big toliet backwards facing the wall-- that way the boys pee shooter was pointed down and so the kid is comfotable so they did not think they will fall in and it was fine, and when they were big enought they will learn to sit the right way and my son started stading up to pee when big enough.

  • At The Home Depot, I found a regular toilet seat with a smaller one that fits into the lid. When little ones needs to sit, they can pull the smaller ring out of the lid. Before that, we had one of those removable ones, but to me they aren't as convenient. The Home Depot one costs about $35 but is usable for years. I never had a potty chair. I think it's disgusting. I prefer to teach my kids how to use a real toilet w/flusher immediately.

  • Yes, you can do it that way. As others have said, there are potty seats that go over the regular one to keep them from falling in.

    I just found it helpful to keep the small potty chair in the great room where she played more often and to have a seat for the regular potty that way when she has to go last minute, it's not a race to the nearest bathroom. I also found my daughter liked the little one better becuase she's small and even with a step stool, still needs help onto the big toilet. with the smaller potty chair, she can do it all herself.

    His thing? Really? What is wrong with the word penis? Do you have fake names for his other body parts?
