I live in a modern NYC apartment with limited space. And in general, I prefer my baby gear to be sleek and compact with minimal eyesore potential. So when it came to selecting a potty training chair, I went with a simple, ergonomic model that took up the least amount of space in our bathroom: the Baby Bjorn Smart Potty.
However, my daughter is not that motivated to sit on it, and as a result, we’ve had a few potty training setbacks.
Case in point: A few days ago, Mazzy sat on the potty fully naked. After all of two seconds, before anything happened, she stood up impatiently and put the potty on her head.
Then she surprised herself by peeing on the floor so she quickly sat down to correct her mistake.
Picture my confused, naked daughter sitting on the bathroom floor in a puddle of her own pee with a potty on her head saying …
“Where’s my potty?”
I think if she had one of the ridiculous potties featured below, that probably never would have happened. (I mean, she may have still peed on the floor, but it’s highly unlikely that she could have balanced “Her Majesty’s Throne” on her head.)
