We're going to start doing EC/early potty training when school ends (a little over a week) and are getting material together to get ready. I know a lot of people will catch it in pots/etc, and I plan on having a few around in the hopes of catching misses, but with a baby who can sit up on his own I think he's ready for a potty chair.
Babies R Us has a coupon for Disney potties, but I don't know if they're necessarily good. I've heard really good things about the BabyBjorn.
Does anyone have any BTDT suggestions on a good potty seat for a baby or what to look for in them? It's for a little boy, although I don't know if this makes a big difference or not.
We liked the Baby Bjorn potties (the little potty, which you can't get anymore, and the smart potty, which is similar). We also really liked the pottette plus (you can get a rubber inner liner to use it like the little potty, but it's also portable (folds up), which is awesome)
Fwiw, he can also use a regular public toilet now if we need to. We only EC part time: all BMs (he signs 'toilet' and gets a certain concentrated look!), at every diaper change, before & after sleeping, sometimes he's in undies around the house...
Enjoy the catches, don't stress about the misses! And help him 'point down' of course!
Wow, that's way expensive! I guess I'm used to used prices.
I highly recommend getting a BBLP on Craigslist, at a big consignment sale or on eBay if you have to (it's discontinued). Also decent choices for EC IME (I'm obsessed with little potties, LOL, since I don't use enough cloth diapers to obsess over them!)...
-Ikea makes a potty, a little big for our 9-m-o, but she can use it. Super-cheap.
-If you find a Bebe Jou, those are also a decent size.
-The Potette Plus, as mentioned, which also converts to go on top of a regular toilet.
-I like the Bemis hidden seat for home...
-Or the Baby Bjorn seat reducer--
