Toilet with kids - Toto Aquia or Toto Eco Drake

Posted by therenee (My Page) on

I don't have any kids right now, but thinking of it in the next 1-2 years. I want to make sure I don't do something stupid now in "their" bathroom that'll be annoying in the future. I'm trying to decide between the Toto Aquia and the Toto Eco Drake. My husband brought up the issue that younger kids might not be able to hit the button on top of the Aquia easily - is that something to worry about? Does anyone with kids have any other tidbits I need to be thinking about? Oh, and maybe TMI - I'm planning to cloth diaper and this will be the toilet that I use for #2 "shake-outs".

Some small kids don't flush because they don't like to flush (noise). I'd be less worried about the button's location than I would be about how hard it is to push the button. But, really, young children need help for many years with wiping anyway... By the time they are independent on the toilet they will be tall enough to flush either type.

What Kirk said :) I actually don't let my girls, 3 and 4 flush the toilet, partly because I want to make sure there isn't anything in there that isn't supposed to be and partly because at this age, I still check what comes out to make sure it looks healthy. Any toilet is good for shake outs.
