Do you suffer from constipation? Look for a bidet with a massage or pulsation feature. This type of water stream can ease constipation. Do you have small children who have trouble finding the bathroom at night? Some bidet toilet seats come equipped with a nightlight beneath the rim that can solve this problem.
