Favorite Traveling Potty

You're on the road, in the middle of nowhere, and *DUM-DUM DUM-DUM* there is the dreaded cry from the back seat, "Mommy, I need to go pee-pee!" For anyone who has to take a road trip with a little one either being potty trained or just under the age of 6, this is a must have in the car. It's like a glowing beacon of "I Can Save Your Interior".

We regularly take 9-10 hour trips back to Southern California and I can not even begin to tell you just how valuable this little Potette Plus portable potty seat has been for us. It has litteraly saved our Sorento from a bad dowsing of ___...well, you fill in the blank. And the nice thing is that not only is it a portable seat for the car, it also is a portable potty seat for public toilets! That with a little spray can of Lysol and we're in the clear for the public potty scene. Wooohoo!

Let me just say, I know that the background is really dark...but assembling a potty on a kitchen counter or table just didn't seem right to our bedspread became a logical choice.

Super simple to unfold the seat "legs" and with a little push lock them into position.

The initial package comes with a few of these baggies that have an absorbant liner at the bottom. It's basically a plastic shopping bag that is just a little smaller with a small diaper in the middle.

You lay one of the baggies with the absorbant bottom in the middle,

Gently pull the sides of the baggie over the edges of the seat

And loop the handles through the slotted area of the legs on each side.

Voila! That was easy. One potty seat ready for action!

And when the kiddle is done doing their business, just undo the bag handles from the legs of the seat, bring them up and tie off the bag. (I carry an extra plastic bag from Target (or any thick shopping bag) to put any potty seat baggies in...just to be sure that there isn't any spillage) Then toss the rubbish away in the next available trash receptacle.

Then what I like to do is get the Potette ready for it's next use...just don't loop the handles of the bag onto the legs of the Potette.

And then store it in it's little drawstring bag. Isn't that nice? They include a carrying bag.

OR if you are in a public restroom, you can simply fold out the legs and lock them into place to become handles for your little kiddle to hold when they are on the potty. (keeping little hands off of the public potty seat)

Seriously, this is the #1 item that I tell anyone who has a little kiddle learning to use the potty, "You have to get this!"

They can easily be found at Babies R Us along with the replacement potty seat baggies. (or you could use a lick plastic shopping bag, but make sure there are no holes, and place a small diaper in the bottom...that works too)
