Babble Best Picks: Training PottiesWhen the time comes to potty train - whether that's at 12 months or 3 years - there are dozens and dozens of potty seats to choose from. And while we wish we could tell you what the unequivocal best is, a lot has to do with your child's age, your personal preference, and simple trial and error. Some toddlers prefer the security of a tiny potty seat, while others will step up to the big toilet from the get-go. Some parents don't mind cleaning out a plastic potty, while others gag at the mere thought. That said, we did find top contenders in various categories, whether your main concern is price, aesthetics, or overall performance. Read through to find our favorite potty seats on the market - and don't forget to check out close runners-up in our Readers' Choice section. Don't see your favorite on the list?

BEST FOR GREEN FAMILIES | TrendyKid Beco Potty
If you’re determined to reduce your carbon footprint, landfill contribution, and plastic dependence, then you’re most likely in the pee-in-the-big-potty camp. But what happens when your little one is entirely intimidated by the large step-up toilet and needs something smaller and more toddler-friendly? What’s a green-loving family to do? This Beco Potty might be what you’re looking for, considering it’s made from natural plant fibers and is completely biodegradable. So at least you can feel a little better about what you’re trashing. Plus, the extra high back, good-sized splashguard, and easy, one-piece design make it an attractive choice. Keep in mind, however, that larger-than-average toddlers and older kids will probably be too big for the tiny size, but it’s perfect for young learners who are too small for the big potty.
