This is a really good potty seat. Its easy to clean, it won't slip and the front will stop spraying when training a boy. I've trained 3 kids and they've all felt comfortable and secure on this potty. Its held up well and is now being used for a 4th kid!
I'm upset that this chair has delayed my daughter's progress with potty training. She was so excited when I first brought the chair home, however after several drawn out attempts to sit on the chair, her excitement to use it has waned.
Due to the shape and design of the chair, the high back and splash guard, my daughter simply struggles to get in and out of the chair. She seems to prefer approaching it from the side, which I think is her attempt to avoid sitting on/bumping up against the splash guard. However, the sides and back of the chair are quite high, and so backing up to the chair/approaching the chair from the side isn't the best option either.
In any event, any potty training chair that requires parent assistance with simply getting into and out of the chair isn't the right chair for us. If she has an emergency and really needs to go, she shouldn't have to do acrobatics or wait for mom or dad to show up to help her get into the chair.
