  • Give him back his little seat. Did his butt grow a few sizes in the past few months? My 3.5 year old still prefers to use the potty for his BMs and really, who the heck cares what kind of seat they use? Whatever makes them comfortable. Think about it: he is trying to have a BM, he needs to brace himself on the toilet to push and to make sure he doesn't fall in, AND he needs to hold his penis down so he doesn't pee all over the place. How many hands does he have? Come on, give him back the small seat so he feels more secure or the potty. It's either that or put towels on the floor...

  • I agree with Lisa. Unless you feel comfortable holding his penis down for him, use the little seat.

  • Mine leans foward so he is automactically aimed down into the pot.
