7 Best Potty Chair In India
Potty training perhaps is one of the most important milestones in a baby’s life. While some babies are easily potty trained a few of them are a bit more demanding.
Personally, I started potty training my son right from when he was about 6 months. After every nap, I used to make him sit on my feet and give him a cue to do his business. Though there are many experts who say that early potty training is harmful, my personal experience as well as my mom’s experience with me and my brother says otherwise. We were all potty trained by the age of 2-2.5.
Whatever be your method, a potty seat or a potty chair is one of the must-haves when you start potty training. There are also a few things that you may have to take care of while buying a potty chair, namely-
Ensure there are no sharp edges or corners in the chair. If your baby cries when made to sit on the potty, check thoroughly for sharp edges. More than often, it is not resistance to sit in the chair that makes the baby cry, rather its discomfort from sitting in an uncomfortable chair that is the culprit.
Having something to hold on to is also pretty important if your baby is less than 1 year old.
Ease of Emptying the Potty Chair
Having a separate potty bowl is quite important to ensure proper emptying and thorough cleaning of the potty chair. So, ensure that the potty chair has an easy to clean bowl with curved edges.
Once your child is about 18-24 months, you would want to start making him do his/her business in the adult toilet. Or else, you will find it pretty hard to manage when you travel. So, it is better to opt for potty chairs with trainer seat that can be clamped to adult toilet seat so that once your toddler is about 18 months you can start using it to make the transition easier.
If you have a boy ensure that the potty seat has a splash guard to reduce post-potty clean up.
Nowadays you can get a variety of potty chairs that looks like car, airplane and with a lot of activities and music. These are not exactly an essential. But if your toddler refuses to use potty and is particularly hard to potty train, then having such a potty chair with such knick-knacks could increase your child’s interest.
