When our son, Tristan, was about 18 months old, we made a rite of passage. We bought a potty chair. My husband thought it was humorous to buy the chair only five months after our toddler learned to walk. But I thought it would be good to have one so our son would get used to seeing it. And with a child's natural curiosity, he'll want to check it out, I reasoned. Why not? He certainly has explored every other apparatus in our house. Who needs Little Tikes when you can have measuring cups, empty boxes, hats and flyswatters?
