Anyone have a good potty recommendation?

We bought the one from IKEA, but she doesn't like it. I don't think she likes the bump between her legs. So I am thinking a little one that really just looks like a potty.

NOT this one.

ETA: We had this one and liked it, and we had the IKEA one which was nice for the car. However, if she doesn't like the IKEA one, she probably won't like the frog potty either. Micah got the hang of balancing on the big potty fairly quickly after deciding to move on from the first (that I posted NOT to get) so it didn't really remain an issue for us.

I think if I had it to do over again, I would probably try the Baby Bjorn the previous poster linked to.

Baby Bjorn... We have the Little model which is a bit smaller and doesn't have the extra pull out bowl. It works really great for our 16mo. My favorite out of all the others we've been through. Can be purchased at Target.com.

I've been trying to pick between the big and little Baby Bjorn. It seems pretty tied here. Is there any really strong reason to get one over the other?

The little one is VERY short. Mine never ever ever liked it .. he thought it was too short for him since just about when he could stand upright. (We did EC, so we started buying these things early.) He does like the bigger one though.

PP is right... the Little is very little. Maybe 6" high total. It works really great for our daughter at 16 months but for an older or taller child the larger one would probably work better.

We use ours mostly for morning pee's when I can't get her to the potty in time. During the day she actually prefers to sit on the regular toilet with someone holding her.
