Potties come in a variety of heights and rim sizes, so it´s important to choose one with a good fit. "Size matters. If your toddler´s bottom is draping over the seat or barely covering the inside rim, she`ll probably feel uncomfortable, anxious, or both," Crane says. The right size seat will let your child`s bottom rest comfortably and solidly on the seat, with her feet firmly on the floor or stool.
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.
Some baby bathtubs come with a drain and plug. By simply unplugging the drain plug, the water can easily leave the baby bathtub. Drains can either be in the base or the walls of the bathtub. Many drains will only remove most water, leaving a little in the basin. This is by design, as the purpose is to make the baby bath light enough that you can easily turn it over for rinsing.
