Fight For Your Right To Potty

I got the good news today that Keegan is going to be moved up to the next classroom next week. This is perfect timing because I was almost going to have to write one of my infamous letters. So since he will be spending more time with kids who are learning to use the potty we'd better get cracking here. I am not going to pressure him but I would like to at least make it available for him here and at his dad's. So my beloved breeders I need some help. What kind of potty have you used with great success and why? What kind would you stay away from? Should I have one on each floor or just keep it downstairs where we spend the most time and then move it up at bedtime? That's all I want to know for now. I will solicit more advice in the coming months as we see how it goes. Much love and thanks.
