Ten Best Potty Training Toilet Seats….Choose What Your Special Child Will Love to Use

Ten best potty training toilet seats

Your special child maybe slow in his development but for sure, somewhere in his timeline, you feel that he is about or almost ready to ditch his diapers.

This is really important because most special education programs require special kids to be toilet-trained partially or fully before they can be accepted to the school.

Aside from observing if your special child is ready for the training, like he can follow simple instructions, he can sit comfortably in the toilet bowl, he is dry the whole night or at least 2 hours at daytime, etc., choosing the best potty training toilet seat for your child could make a big difference.

If he likes what you buy for him, he will be interested at all times to sit on it and will be potty trained in no time.

I have looked at the ten best potty training toilet seats in the market today thinking of their usability, durability, comfort, pleasure and interest for your child when using it.

My top choices

There you go, I hope you have found something useful for your special kid, a potty toilet seat that will inspire him to go back again and again until he is fully trained.

If your child is still small, my personal choice would be the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn, Puppy Potty because it is comfortable, easy to clean and with additional bonus, that includes the electronic book and the positive reinforcement that it brings through the fun phrases, songs and realistic flushing sound.

For bigger kids, my choice would be the BabyBjorn potty chair because it is stable and comfortable for the kids. Likewise, it is easy to clean and comes in different colours. It could be used by both girls and boys, as well.

Depending on the capabilities and readiness of your special child, toilet training could be a struggle or a big challenge but with the help of the potty training toilet seat and your patience in training your kid, they will eventually hate their diapers and you will soon forget how hard training was.

Just try to be very patient and put some fun in letting your child be successful a lot of times.

Rewards definitely help!

Does your special child show readiness for potty training? Are you planning to buy a potty training toilet seat soon?

Or if you are now potty training, how are your experiences?

  1. Hi Marita

    Great review! Potty training can be quite difficult for some children and I can imagine it is harder for those who have special needs. There is such a variety of seats available and you have broken the review down nicely into easily digestible sections. I also like what you have recommended at the end for children who are small and those who are bigger to make the decision process easier.

    As you’ve mentioned, patience is key. Thanks

    1. Hi Teresa,

      You are correct, potty training is much more challenging for children with special needs and I believe choosing the potty training seat that would be most comfortable and maybe amusing for them would help the parents in making the transition more successful in a short time.

      Thanks for reading.

  2. Personally, as a dad, I’d choose the BabyBjorn Potty Chair. Looks handy enough and can be used for both genders.

    It is easy to clean as well, which could make life at home more comfortable when you have small kids and most especially if you have a special kid.

    Have a nice week ahead.

    With regards,

    Sammy.

    1. Hi Sammy,

      Definitely, the BabyBjorn potty chair is a good choice and it is so easy to clean up as well.

      Enjoy your week, too.

      God bless,

  3. Hi, the first year training wheels is so cool, my son would love that. Are there any unicorn versions for little girls? The others are also really good although I think some of them are a little bit boring. The main thing is to use a potty that will get “bums on seats” and at this age that’s easier said then done. 

    1. I know, potty training is so challenging, more so for special kids.

      Sorry, I haven’t seen potty seats with unicorn versions.

      Thanks for reading.

  4. I already bought one for Hailey.Its nice to know there are more other choices so I had fun reading.I let her ate choose which potty trainer suits Hailey and we came accross one product you featured here and yes we had the same concern.I really like your choice with the books and sounds it could really encourage the child to do her thing😉 we are still waiting but she’s getting the hang of it.More patience is the key.
    I really enjoyed reading very helpful.

    1. Hi Emerald,

      I know Hailey understands simple instructions so you can start training her. I’m sure it will take a while before she is fully trained but she will eventually get there. And you are right, you need more patience and understanding.

      God bless,

  5. I’m really interested in several of your recommendations for a relative of mine. She’s been having some issues finding a seat that’s easy to clean and sturdy, so I’m glad I came across this post. The two I’m looking at are the Summer Infant My Size Potty and the BabyBjorn Potty Chair.

    They look simple enough to maintain, but also pretty solid from a construction standpoint. Which of the two would you suggest for a single mom that’s been struggling to get her little one trained?

    Cheers, and thanks again for the write-up!

    1. Hi Buck,

      It will depend on the size of the baby,  if he is on the small side, the Summer infant my size potty is okey. If the baby is on the bigger size, the  BabyBjorn potty chair would be the best choice.

      Glad that you found this post helpful to your relative.

      Thanks for reading.

  6. Pretty impressive choices you shared here. But this has made me wonder, what might be the effective if I don’t buy any of these? You know, we can imagine what will be the good effects or benefits of having these. Thinking of the opposite, if I don’t buy any of these, what might be the outcome?

    Another thing… At what age of the child we can notice he or she’s a special child? I asked this because, I am a single man and soon I am getting married. So, what if this happen to me or to my baby? How will I know if my child is a special child, and at what age I can notice he or she’s different from the rest?

    1. Hi Gomer,

      Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!

      When you have a baby, you will notice something different in him since you will see him everyday. Like if he will not look at you or respond to you when you talk to him, he might have hearing difficulty or he might have signs of autism. For some, they might have facial features that suggest they have Down syndrome, etc. 

      I’m sure you might have observed other babies or kids, especially moms or your wife-to- be, and you can compare how your child will develop, like at a certain age, they can crawl or sit down on their own, etc.

      There will be signs for sure at a certain age, so if you see these signs, even if they are subtle, go bring him to the doctor for proper assessment.

      For the potty training, some parents choose not to buy the training set. It’s perfectly fine as long as you observe that your kid is comfortable sitting on the adult toilet bowl. Your training might come later because of this.

      Thanks for reading.

  8. Hello Marita! 

    Your website is so easy to navigate! The frog urinal is my personal favorite as it seems to be able to be very functional. I wish I had one for my son when he was potty training! Thank you for all of the details on each type of seat. This information will be very useful for the parent I am recommending to this site.

  9. This is a great information about ten best potty training toilet seats. I feel like been born again,starting all over again because of this information.
