Best Toddler Step Stool for Potty Training

Some potty trained toddlers may be ready, even insisting, on doing the task from start to finish by themselves. And if your child is wearing clothes without buttons or zippers, he probably can take on toileting himself, although you probably should still supervise and help with wiping at this age. Since many toddlers, especially those who potty trained before age two, cannot reach the toilet to sit down, you will need to buy a potty stool if you are using a potty seat that sits on the toilet. Here are some of the best toddler step stools on the market that give the stability a young toddler needs and extra height without being so tall that your child is elevated precariously over the toilet.

BabyBjorn Step Stool

The BabyBjorn Safe Step stool is 8 inches tall and wide enough on the top to give your child some room to step up and turn around. This also makes the base wide and less likely to tip over. The top surface is rubber with bumps to prevent slipping. If you have an older child that can easily step up and down without toddling, then buy this cheaper potty stool. As a plus, it comes in several bright and cheery color combinations including pink and purple and green and yellow.
