potty stairs?

my daughter has been potty trained for a few months now and i have to follow her to the bathroom since she needs help getting on the potty. i was wondering if there is any "stairs" or something not too dangerous that i can place in front of the potty so she can get up there on her own. the reason i say "not too dangerous" is because if she loses her balance climbing up, being that our bathroom is very small, she'll either slip and hit her head on the tub and possibly fall in or slip and hit her head on the radiator. i'm a worry wart i know. any suggestions would be great!

btw. the reason i ask is because i'm almost 25 weeks pregnant so the constant bending to pick her up is really taking a toll on my back.

Buy a step stool for her.  They are sold by the potty chairs and have non slip material.   DD has a potty chair that turns into a stool with the lid down so she can reach the sink or big potty.

We have a little tinkerbell stool from target. its small so its not dangerous but tall enough to brush her teeth and get up on the potty herself. They are perfect

I'm helping my friend potty train her 3 year old twin boys. We have a stool for them to help them get on the potty easier.

her training potty turns into a "stool" when the lid is down but it's very slippery. also, every time she sees it, she thinks it's okay to go potty in it. so i just hid it down in the basement lol!

We use that folding up step. Let me go look what it's called.

EDIT: It's called E-Z FOLDZ. Love it cause it's folds up to get out of the way in the small bathroom.
