My baby is showing the signs that he is getting close to being ready to potty train. A few weeks ago, he started telling when he has a soiled diaper. He says, “I poop” when he soils his diaper. He hasn’t quite figured out the difference between urinating and pooping. I am excited and nervous at the same time because I feel like a first time mom when it comes to potty training. I don’t remember how I trained my older kids to use the potty. I know that I need to pick him a potty seat of his own at the store, but I am torn on what type of potty seat that I should buy for him.

What Type of Potty Seat Would You Choose: A Soft Potty Seat or A Portable Potty Chair for Your Toddler?
I have thought about buying him a potty seat that attaches to the current toilet. Our bathroom doesn’t really have additional place to store a standalone potty chair. However, if the older kids or guests want to use the spare bathroom they would have to remove the potty seat each time before they use the restroom. I always envision that the older kids will end up wetting their pants because they can’t get the baby’s potty seat off of the toilet fast enough. (that is another blog post..hehe)
The other option that I have is to buy an independent potty seat for my son. I love the fact that it is portable and we can move it around the house as we teach the baby how to use the potty. I know that I could move a soft potty seat between the bathrooms but the portable potty chair would allow me to move the potty chair any where in the house. As I have been looking for potty chairs, I have noticed that the potty chairs have changed quite a bit over the years and some models are pretty fancy.
