Alternative Potty Seats


Is your standard potty seat not working for your child? Included below are a few alternatives that may solve your problems. Don’t forget to provide a stool for their feet! When kids sit on the toilet, their feet should be supported with a stool; this allows for easier bowel movements.

Special Tomato Potty Seat

This seat has a very soft cushion and provides increased support for kids who need it. It comes in two styles: round and elongated.

  • Special Tomato Portable Potty Seat - Round
  • Special Tomato Portable Potty Seat - Elongated

NextStep Children’s Toilet Seat

  • NextStep Round Closed Front Toilet Seat in White
  • NextStep Children's Round Closed Front Toilet Seat - Alternative Colors
