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?

READERS’ CHOICE | Baby Bjorn Smart Potty
A hybrid between the incredibly popular Baby Bjorn Potty Chair and the Baby Bjorn Little Potty, the Smart has all of the best features in one sleek design. Like the Little Potty, the Smart is lower to the ground, lightweight, and compact – making it ideal for small bathrooms and/or traveling. But unlike the Potty Chair, the Smart is a little roomier, has a bigger removable insert, and has a non-skid bottom – making it more comfortable and easier for bigger toddlers to use.
But as much as we, the parents, adored it, our tester just didn’t find it as comfortable and appealing as the Boon Potty Bench or even the Fisher-Price Froggy Friend. But for those kids who take to it, it’s really the ideal option. For those who prefer a higher back, try the Baby Bjorn Potty Chair.
