Have to do a 2-hr journey alone with DDs next weekend. Eldest just potty trained and still has regular accidents. I think it's going to be too tricky with DD2, double buggy, busy weekend train etc. Is it going to be a really bad thing if I put her in a pull-up for the journey?

No way is it bad! DS (4) only recently did his first two hour train journey in pants...all the others have been in pull ups. That way, if we made it to the loo on time - great, if not - no issues with mess and soaking trousers and a distressed toddler as DS hates wet pants!

I think that is a good idea.
Train toilets are really horrible and stinky and i avoid my DC using them if possible!

We used to call pull-ups "travelling pants" for that exact reason. I would put them on DS2 for any longish journey in case he fell asleep, but he still considered them pants so would ask for the toilet when awake (except for when he didn't iyswim)

Didn't use them at any other time - stuck with nappies at night.
