Potty step stools are a wonderful buy in supporting healthy patterns of independence and self-care for your children. Rather than being forced to rely on an adult for their restroom needs, an appropriately-sized potty step stool allows children to further their potty training success by allowing them to reach the toilet on their own. When buying a potty step stool, double-check that you’re buying the correct size for your toilet height and child’s weight. Other features to look for are non-skid feet and rubber grips to prevent your child from slipping. If you’re planning to use the potty stool as a multi-purpose step for your child, consider purchasing a lightweight model that’s easy for your child to move around the house.
