When my 2 year old daughter wanted to use the potty, we thought it would be great to have her trained early. However, we quickly found she was a bit too small to sit safely on the potty. We had the bigger, sturdy seats at home, but were looking for something that we could easily transport in the diaper bag and take with us when we travel. I found this and thought it was a great idea (the rubber kept from pinching I had heard so much about) and it was cheap. There is a reason it was cheap. The seat does not fit on any toilet we have found out in public, and because of that it is flimsy and my daughter refuses to use it because she does not feel safe. Save your money, or purchase a better quality seat. After about 6 months our daughter now uses the regular seat just fine.
