My child won't use potty in public WC's.

Potty training going fine but when out in public she won't go to potty in public toilets and screams and tries to run away terrified shouting no. We have to put potty outside hiding behind a wall or something like that instead. Anyone got any tips?

Had the same issue with mine. Strangely she got much better if she just sat on the toilet seat rather than a potty. Have you tried that?

I would just use the actual toilets provided

That's a good idea, I never thought of that. So, should I put a toddler toilet seat on it? Even if in public? X

You can buy a foldable seat. Or just hold them on.

Nah, I would just hold child on seat.

I had a Potette Plus which is a foldable travel potty which also acted as a toilet seat. I have a bad back and found it impossible to hold a wriggly toddler over a toilet. This was a great buy.
