Toilet training and travel?
6

My daughter is nearly 16mths old and has started only just started going to the toilet on her potty in the last few days. She has finished off two poos (over two days) on the potty and will wee in it if she gets their quick enough (which usually doesnt happen) I am not "trainging" her as such, we have potties out for her to use if she wants, we have been having her naked over the last few days just to show her that she doesnt have to go in her nappy if she doesnt want (we dont have carpet - or i would have done it!! lol) anywho.. my problem is that we are just about to drive two full days, stay somewhere new for a week or so, and then drive two full days back. Then about a week later we are driving five hours, staying there for a week, flying for five hours, staying there for a week then flying and driving home again.. so my question is - do i just stop letting her go on the potty until we get back? Do i take a potty in the car and let her go as she pleases when we are out of the car? We will be inside on the first trip most of the time but the second holiday we will be out of the house most of the day.. so what do i do?? I dont want her to forget, but i dont want to push her either.. TIA :)

Hello-


If it were me, I'd probably bring a travel potty seat along and let her know she can go using that if she wants.

Welcome Stefanie


I agree with Kristy on taking the potty and giving her this option,I would also,as a difference,Gets some training panties with plastic pants to help control the accidents.


There will be times when this may be to inconvenient so You might try putting the pull-up on over the training pants,this will still let her know when she wets.


She is still at an age where it may take a bit of time and with all the travelling will hold her back a bit,she will probably train pretty quick on your return.


Have a great holiday and please let us know how things went when you get back.


Many Blessings.

Hello Stephanie.


I prefer the cloth training pants with plastic pants as they are far better at letting the child know when they are wet right away.


I find the pull-ups are just to dry and hold up the training quite a bit. but they can be of use on long trips.


Many Blessings.
