I have twins, a boy and a girl they're only 13 months now but I want to start preparing for potty training and wanted to know if everyones opinions. Do you think its better to let them each have their own "special" potty seat or just share one, after all they'll share one once theyve got it. I dont know I'm probably putting too much thought into it but can't decide if it'll be easier if they had their own and have them practice sitting on them at the same times or just take turns with one.Answer Question

I bought one potty chair and one potty ring that fits on the toilet. We ended up mostly using the potty chair as a stool in front of the regular toilet with the potty ring on it. My daughter was ready for potty training a long time before my son, so she had it all down by the time he was ready to learn and fighting over the toilet wasn't really an issue most of the time. I also held off on potty training until they were 2 1/2 and almost 3, so they were bigger and more secure on the regular toilet by then.

I have 18 month old boy girl twins and they each have their own potty. Trust me when they are ready they won't want to share and they will want to be in there at the same time and you will want to encourage that as one may be able to lead the other. We are at the beginning stages and our girl wants to sit on the potty when her big brother is on the big potty. (Big brother is only 10 months older and still in the training process.) They are all at the age with pushing, shoving and saying mine. You will appreciate the extra cost. I also have the kind where the seat comes off and goes on the big potty so we keep one upstairs and one downstairs. I wish you the best of luck. It is hard work and never give up. PS- I highly advise that you let them in the bathroom when you are using the "potty" and explaining to them what you are doing. Use the same key words at all times and be consistent.
