Introducing the potty early

My child is 15 months and I thought I would introduce the potty seat early. Well every morning he moves the seat and poops on the floor. I'm so exited but should I try to introduce the potty at a later day?

Some kids train early, but I think before age 2 it's not very common. There's nothing wrong with having the potty seat out and ready, but maybe just as some initial encouragement. At 15 months he's likely not ready to fully potty train, but with the repeated encouragement of seeing the potty seat, and seeing others use the toilet, he might catch on in a few months :)
