Public toilets with little ones

My ds is newly potty trained but when we are out and about I can't carry a potty everywhere so we need to use a regular public loo but at home we'd use a small toilet seat insert so what happens in public loos? ConfusedBlush

You hold them steady on the loo seat.

You just hold them.

You hold them or they hold themselves up. And then you both wash your hands really really well.

I used to have a foldable toilet seat insert that came in a little bag off amazon

You can get folding toilet seats for toddlers. Ours lives in my changing bag as my son is very slight and feels unsteady on toilets even if I hold him and so refuses to use them without a toddler seat.

I've got the potette plus portable potty which doubles as a portable toilet seat. I have a 3 year old and a just potty training nearly 2 year old and it's definitely been worth the money I paid for it.

I used to have a foldable one. It was a fab idea but it was a nightmare because I'm a bit of a germ-a-phone and had to carry detail wipes everywhere. It did become easier to hold them!

We used to have a travel potty (pottette) that doubled up as a small toilet seat insert.

So could be either used as a potty or on a regular toilet.

Otherwise I put the small DC on toilet, tell them to hold onto me, and hold them round the waist / under arms so they don't fall in the toilet.

We used to have a little folding toilet seat we kept in the changing bag. Or you can get a potette which can be used as a travel potty or as a toilet seat.

Potette plus is a good one

We have one from Amazon - think it's called Jerrybox - and it works for us. Has fitted on every toilet so far, has its own bag, folds small enough to stuff in the changing bag.
