As an engineer and a mother, I was presented with a problem that I had to solve. Hector just did not like to sit in a soiled (number 2) nappy (diaper) and would cry. I had to find a solution. I had to find a way for Hector to empty his bowels completely. No one told me that I was meant to wait until he was 2 years old before thinking about toilet training.

When my family and friends saw what I was doing and the positive results, they encouraged me to take Hector’s Throne – as it was called then – into production. Hector’s Throne became The Baby Throne and the rest is history, as they say!
