Family Toilet Seat? Really? First I pictured a 4 seater toilet, I don't want to have anything to do with that, but this...I do.
Potty training is a fun, stressful, outrageous and wonderful time. Foster the independence, but I know too well what happens when a tired little butt sits on the potty and slips right in. Unhappy toddler getting a bath, and unhappy momma trying to clean it up.
I like many, also have one of the set on toddler toilet seats but I don't know about yours but ours doesn't get washed--often enough. But there I go on a moments notice grabbing for this gross seat and usually end up not handling it by a handle, but by the "spray" plate in the front. Yuck! It grosses me out, so after seeing these seats at my girlfriends' house I finally caved. I bought one. I put it in the main bathroom yesterday and I would not hesitate to recommend these things to a friend.
So you've got to check these things out!
The one above is the one I have, but there are many different models!
So far, I am a huge fan! No more handling that dirty toddler seat! Mason's cheeks don't slide in and he seems fairly comfortable on it. And he loves that he can do it by himself, and I love he doesn't have to touch the potty seat.
The one I bought is plastic and pretty light weight, which I can see being a long term issue in durability, but it is great because it doesn't slam which saves tears from the 18 month old when the 3 year old crazy man tries to smash her fingers in it. Yes, this happens at my house. *sigh*
The only thing that would make this better is to have it lock so my 18 month couldn't throw her toys in the toilet but still let my 3 year old use it.
Hey I can dream right!?
