Potties are available with a variety of themes, lights, songs, and sound effects, but are they worth it? For some, this may increase your child′s interest, especially if your child was the one to pick out the race car flushing noise or the magical wand reward song potty. But it′s certainly not a necessity, says David Hill, M.D., author of Dad to Dad: Parenting Like a Pro. "More than any light show, sticker, or piece of candy, the thing that delights your child the most is your praise. So be prepared to clap your hands, give a big hug, or do a special dance to celebrate your child‵s success, and skip the electronics."
Seat reducers, which go on a traditional toilet seat and reduce the ring to a comfortable, kid-friendly size, also have specific benefits. They′re less expensive than a stand-alone potty and take up less floor space. Your child gets used to the regular potty, which prevents another transition from stand-alone potty to adult potty, and there is even less mess (if anything) to clean after use. Plus, seat reducers can be a good fit for kids who like to copy. "[They] can be a great motivator for kids who like to mimic their older siblings, cousins, or friends," says Heather Wittenberg, PsyD, a Parents advisor and author of Let‵s Get This Potty Started! The Baby Shrink’s Guide to Potty Training. But keep in mind that if you choose a seat reducer, you may need to invest in a stool; it will help your child get up on the potty and provide adequate foot support when a child is expelling pee or poop.
Absorbs water easily. For the best absorbency you will want to look for cotton. Cotton is very absorbent and doesn’t have to be super thick to do so. You want to dry your baby off as quickly as possible after they get out of the bath, so they do not catch cold. Durability. No one wants to have to replace their baby’s towels every few months. Look for fabrics that will hold up to frequent washes without the towels pilling. This can make the fabric rough to the touch which the baby will not like very much. Cotton will usually pill a lot due to the shorter fibers. Tightly knit towels will not pill as much so look for tight weaves.
