Color and design
Make sure that the seat that you will be buying for your baby is familiar to him. The seat can be in his favorite color or it can have a picture of his favorite animal or an image of his favorite cartoon character. This sense of familiarity will make your child feel more secure and less intimidated by the toilet bowl. When he is at ease with this it would not be hard for you to encourage him to try it out and to teach him how to use it.
When you are buying the seat make sure it also have a stool included with it and if possible this stool has the same design and image that the seat have making the child again secured with the familiar color or image. The stool actually has three functions. First is that it will give your child easy access to the toilet bowl. Second he can use this as a platform to put his feet on and push on it when he is in that potty zone. Third is that he can drag it to the lavatory to wash his hands and clean up.
