I held him up sometimes, and he stood on the toilet lid and leaned oooooverrrr sometimes. That was precarious and scary! All week I kept wishing I had our step stool, and I couldn't think of anything we had in the room for him to stand on.
When our DD was little, we let her use the hassock from the desk. It's a little tall, but she could hang on to the edge of the sink & see her self in the mirror (what can I say, she's a gemini). I stayed with her to make sure she didn't fall, but it worked great.
