Type of potty chair for little boy?

My 20 month old told me that he had to "pee" and then tried to climb on to the toilet today. I am going to take this as a cue that maybe he is ready to start potty training (or maybe it was just a one time thing). Here is my question...should I get him one of the little potty chairs that goes on the floor or a potty seat that goes on the toilet? Any recommendations? What worked for you boys?

I like the potty chair that goes on the floor because it is easy for my boy to get on and off. There is one that looks like a toilet but it has a cup to catch a little boys pee. It is called a fisher price cheer for me potty. It sings when your child uses the potty and it is very cute. I also recommend that you get a travel potty cover for when you travel. It helps create a potty that is child sized. Hope this helps!

I have three boys and I would just get the ring that goes on the toilet or look and see if they have one of those 3 in 1 things where it is potty chair, a potty ring and later a stool. I might suggest though not to pick on with the little splash protector on it because when they try to get off it, the boys tend to kind of catch their little willies on it and it hurts so if it hurts they kind of don't want to use it. If they think the potty is going to hurt them they just won't want to go potty.

My little girl (20 months) goes with me to the bathroom, takes off her diaper, and sits on her potty chair. She has only actually peed in it like once in a month. But she still goes with me and tries. She even wipes herself and then dumps the little pot out in the toilet and flushes...lol. I think she is totally ready but children LOVE to mimic their parents. I would go ahead and try potty training though because cousins little girl was about this age and one day she just said she didn't want a diaper, walked into the bathroom, and went, hasn't worn a diaper since (I wish they were all that easy).

I've got both. But because he uses the potty chair at school he does not use the toilet one any more. Instead he stands by the toilet like a real little man (soooo cute) and does his thing. I did find that having the toilet one, I could cart it around to other peoples homes and made my life easier when he did want to potty.

I would buy him a seat that goes on the toilet. I bought my son a plain white one, because having any design on it always distracted him and he didnt want to pay attention to actually going potty. Also, its easier, because you won't have to make the transition from the little potty to the toilet.
