If you’re amping to get started with potty training, you’re going to need one key purchase: an adorable little throne for your kid to reign from. There are 2 options to choose from; the first fits over your toilet and the second is a stand-alone job. If your kid can handle the first, it will get them used to doing their business where you’ll never have to worry about it. But if they can’t sit that high off the floor without squirming, you may need to start lower to the ground, which means you’re trading changing diapers for dumping their dump for them. Either way, you’re on the road to that magical moment when they can wipe their own butts. Some parents claim you’ll look back and miss it, but don’t listen to them — you won’t.
