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 EARLY LEARNERS | Baby Bjorn Little Potty
This Baby Bjorn potty is similar to the IKEA LÄTTSAM in that it’s a simple, affordable, one-piece design, but it’s also really little. So if you’re starting to potty train an infant or even attempting elimination communication, it’s a smaller version of a classic potty seat. The compact size also makes it ideal for traveling, although older toddlers and preschoolers will probably need something a little wider. And like all Baby Bjorn potty seats, the Little Potty is made from BPA-free, recyclable plastics.
If you’d rather have a potty seat that has a removable insert to clean, check out the Baby Bjorn Smart Potty which is one of our favorites.
