 Does your LO use a potty seat or an actual potty? I am trying to figure out which one is better to use. DD has her own bathroom and it's not too big but I think there is room to put her potty in there if we choose to get her that. Anyone have a preference????

My LO goes through stages/times of using the potty, but is not fully trained yet.  She usually sits on the potty seat right now.

We started out with the potty until she got the hang of things.Then moved to using the potty seat during the day,and kept the potty in her room at night ( she was too scared to come out of her room at night to potty when she was first potty trained at 2 yrs,lol)

We used the Baby Bjorn potty (below) while she was really young and first learning. When she got to be about 2.5 we switching to a seat that goes directly on the potty so we don't have to worry about cleaning out the little potty all the time. If you're starting at 2.5 or older, and your child is coordinated enough to get up and down without a problem, I'd just get a seat for the regular potty so you can just flush.

haha the title made me laugh "why yes, i LOVE the real potty!" jk. 

but to answer your question, potty seat was good tool to train and teach on, but my son stands up at the potty since 2.5 and poops on the big toilet with a toddler cover seat

I bought both and let my kids decide hat they wanted to use. Mine all started out with potty chairs and as soon as they wanted to move to the big potty we moved them there.

We started with her potty chair and then put the seat on the big potty. But at daycare is when she really started to use the potty and they use just the toilet. So that's what we changed to at home. DD's been in her big girl underwear for a week and a half without an accident!!
