Detailed review of the BabyBjorn Toilet Training Seat

The Toilet Trainer by Baby Bjorn is fantastic! I never imagined I’d use the word “wonderful” to describe a toilet accessory, but when your top priority is getting that kid toilet trained, it truly is. The Toilet Trainer is designed to fit perfectly inside the toilet seat and is readily adjustable to match any size toilet seat. There’s a streamlined, practical handle that makes it easier to instal and remove the Toilet Trainer, as well as a means to hang the training seat for storage.

We thought the Baby Bjorn Toilet Seat was really well designed – the curved shape makes it more comfortable for the child to sit on, and the raised splash guard at the front prevents any mess from spilling outside the toilet – we haven’t had any spills or accidents since we started using the potty seat. It’s also quite simple to clean, which is a huge plus — There are no difficult-to-reach areas!

PROS OF THE BABYBJORN TOILET TRAINER SEAT

Splash Guard! Since using this seat, we’ve noticed a significant decreases in the amount of pee that’s getting on the toilet seat.The amount of coverage on the front of this seat, and the slight outer rubber edging helps prevent a significant amount from leaking or spraying through. We have also not see any spraying through whatsoever! 

– It will actually fit your toilet! The best part about this seat is the adjustable function on the bottom so you can fit it snug to the shape of your toilet. This way, there is little to no movement! This, we found, really helps toddlers going through potty training regression, as they feel safe & secure on the BabyBjorn toilet seat AND there’s no need to go out and buy any other bathroom products to help keep it secure.

– Super easy to use! Surprisingly, the first time we used it, my kid was able to put the seat on the toilet by herself.

– Stylish – not a bright plastic eyesore like all of those other toddler accessories

– Great for the travel-savvy among us.Not only for at-home toilets, but also when travelling. This excellent fit is essential since it will assure your child’s comfort and encourage independent use (which means you won’t have to hold your child over the toilet, which is a win-win situation for all parties involved…amiright?)

– The seat opening is also nice and small. Perfect for the booty of my little 20-month old.

CONS OF THE BABYBJORN TOILET TRAINER SEAT

– If there is a little break in the material, the cushioned seat quickly becomes mouldy and nasty. The most revolting odour I’ve ever encountered!)

-A more long-lasting hanging loop would be good. Rubber should be thicker or of the same material as the seat.

– No grab handles – The seat is narrow enough on my round toilets for my son to set his hands down on the main seat, but handles might make things a bit more comfortable

– It’s quite a bit more expensive than the other brands and models out there – but hey, you get what you pay for. edging, practic

Easy To Use

This seat is a hit with my 2.5-year-old! From the beginning, we used this as a potty training tool and haven’t looked back. It’s simple to use, clean, and store for travels to Grandparents’ houses. It’s very adaptable, and we haven’t had any trouble fitting it into a toilet. Don’t be fooled by the character-themed off-brands; these are well worth the money!

Easy To Clean

It’s simple to clean and disinfect. There’s a wonderful handle for an adult to grip to clean or reposition the seat more easily.

Before & After: One Family's Journey With The BabyBjorn Toilet Training Seat

I’ve been prepotty training my 18 mos old for a few months now and it was time to give my arms a rest!

Shockingly, my daughter was able to put the seat onto the toilet all on her own the first time we used it! Right then and there I was sold.

But to get down to the details, this seat checked the areas of need, which were:

1. Easy fit on my Western brand toilet (a bit more oblong than circular)
2. Secure placement for my little one’s bum. No slipping and sliding
3. Not and overly colorful eyesore
4. Bonus: has a hanging feature for easy storage

Check, check, check, check! I’m usually all over new products and brands, but this time I’m glad I went with the babybjorn.. not only was it reasonably priced, but it has proven to be a reliable product.
