What's better for potty-training? A potty, or one of those small seat things for the toilet?

I always start with potties dotted around the house. You want to make weeing success as easy as possible - when your toddler gets the feeling to go, they need to be able to get to the potty before the wee comes out. Once they're more in tune with what's going on, you can progress to the toddler toilet seat. Put yourself in your toddler's shoes - running to the bathroom and climbing up to a toilet is way harder than sitting on a potty when you're ready to go now now now!

I tend to find that potties are better too....some children get the sense that they want to copy Mummy/Daddy and go on the big toilet, but generally speaking they prefer potties to start with and as Dee said, you will find it a lot easier to have them around you when the first few days of potty training means running to them fairly quickly!
