Potty training isn't easy. You might be nodding your head or thinking "duh". Now that my daughter's a semi pro at the potty training business I wanted to share with you what worked the best for us. I tried two different portable potties and two different toilet seats. I first tried using a gimmick. My daughter loves everything pink, Dora or princess themed and I thought it would help the process. Initially, the gimmick worked whether it was from the color or the decorations she wanted to sit on them but not for long. Those potties weren't comfortable and even with padding the shape left indentations on her skin. Who would want to sit on something painful and scary?
