My ds is now 2 1/2. Although he hasn't shown signs of "readiness" I want to be prepared. I would prefer a potty seat that fits over the toilet and can travel. I have an extremely small bathroom and this would work best for us.<br><br>
Has anyone used this brand? It seems pretty nice and not something that can pinch and hurt him.<br><br>
Is there a seat that you prefer?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Thanks!

Ok let me just RAVE on the bb seat reducer if you have a boy! and here is why... Its pee guard is decent height but curved wonderfully so that it does catch pee but doesnt do serious body damage if sat directly on.. the curve where the leg goes does an excellent job of containing wayward boy pee... the inside of the peeguard extends down farther into the bowl than any other brand I have tried.. this reduces the chances of pee spraying out between the regular toilet seat and bowl ... oh so nasty if you as a parent are squatting infront of the toilet... btdt!!... yechk! the only thing you need to watch out for or teach your boy to do is *lean forward* to encourage a decent *pee seal* formed by the lower tummy, thighs, and seat...<br><br>
having said all that, I dont want to give the impression that the seat is perfect because it isnt but usually when there is a malfunction of some sort, I have found the bb seat to contribute to the cause of the malfunction the *least* out of the 3-4 other brands I tried...<br><br>
Maybe one day I will have a girl and it will all be moot point!! hehe<br><br>
HTH!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

We have that one and I like it. (I have a daughter.) I thought they all were pretty much the same, but I found out that there <i>are</i> differences when I was at my mom's house and we used the one my bro had picked up for his son when they were visiting a few years back. I have a front-wetting girl with a fairly powerful stream and we had had no problems with the Baby Bjorn seat, but she sprayed out pretty consistently with the little insert ring we used while visiting. I tried to remind her to lean forward, which helped, but it definitely didn't perform as well.<br><br>
There may be other good ones, too, but I think the Baby Bjorn insert ring is a keeper.

We've had great luck with the Flip 'n Flush from One Step Ahead. It's a seat reducer that attaches to an adult toilet seat. My bathroom was too small for a separate small potty and DD had trouble always getting the potty "ring" on just right, but with this thing she just flips it down when she has to go and flips it up when she's done and it's ready for adults to use!! Totally awesome product!! (comes in three colors too!!) It's obviously not portable, so we also purchased a travel seat from OSA that folds into quarters and fits in the diaper bag. HTH?

The Flip 'n Flush sounds ideal. Can you put the lid down when not in use?<br><br>
Is there anyone out there that has used the Flip 'n Flush with a boy - I am wondering if the splash guard works well for boys or if there are any problems with pinching, etc.<br><br>
Thanks!

Yes, you can put the lid down and everything - no pinched fingers, as it's lightweight plastic!! I don't know about the splash guard (as all I have are girls), but I think it was a HUGE help to DD in potty training not having to mess with a separate seat!! You can check is out at onestepahead.com (if you haven't already), but I just can't say enough good things about it!! Good luck!

We have a Bjorn and love it!! With boys, you do have to make sure they sit on it straight, but I am sure that is the same with all of them with pee guards. Also, it is wayyyyy easier to clean than ANY other!!

LOVE our bb seat. Love it love it love it. It fits the toilet well, and fits ds's little booty well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> We stuck one of the mid-sized 3M white plastic hooks on the wall behind the toilet and it hangs up there when not in use.
