Dove is right...try what she said. I am working on potty training my 2yr old nephew and its been a LONG time since I've done this I am starting by getting him undressed for his bath by sitting on the pot and by chance he has went 1&2 in it but he can't tell us he has to go pee or poop yet so we just let him play around with his potty chair. He uses it for a place to sit and he climbs on it and is getting comfortable with the potty chair. When I go I take him with me so he is figuring out what the toilet is for and he really enjoys flushing objects down it lol...but I really think he is to young still to understand the sensation that you feel that lets you know you have to per or poo. I most deffiently would get rid of the duck and go with something simpler.

20 months is still pretty young to potty train. Some kids are ready by this age... some aren't ready til 3 (and some even a bit older).

Since he was scared of sitting on it I'd just leave the seat around and let him play with it or on it if he wants, but ignore the topic of potty training for a couple of weeks. If he seems to get comfortable w/ the potty then you can ask him if he'd like to try sitting on it.

Encourage him and offer to help him, but don't push it. He'll get there when he's ready.

Just a side note... if someone told me the toilet would kiss me and dance wild... I'd be a little hesitant too. lol Seems a bit scary.
