My two year old does great using the potty.
My problem is that she won't use it when we are out in public.
Any suggestions? PLEASE

I had that problem for a long time. She was afraid if the crack in the front of the seat and even when i would turn her sideways she still had anxieties about it. We went to a playgroup one day and i took her to the bathroom before she could play and they had a cute short potty that was "just her size" as she put it. now when i take her to the bathroom i show her the handicap tall toilet first and then take her to the regular one that is "just her size". if you know of anyplace that has an itty bitty potty try it out. goodluck!

If you think she is afraid of how big the potty is they make seats that fold up to fit in a diaper bag that snap onto the seat to make it a little more comfortable for toddlers

We bring a potty seat insert, the same one she uses at home, everywhere we go. She sits on it everytime.

My daughter is also afraid of the big public potties. I noticed when I sat her down on one she became tense and just kept wanting to hold tight to me and she would try to get down. I think she was afraid because she was sitting on a bigger hole and could not sit back feeling like falling through. I am still thinking of what to do to make it better for her. It's not the height for her, it's the size of the hole.
