Traveling While Toilet Training

Posted by Potty Expert on December 13, 2011

Toilet training does need to continue to happen, even when traveling. There has to be consistency when you are potty training. Consistency will be a huge factor in how quickly your child picks up on potty training and the entire experience that you and your child have when they are learning.

The more consistent you are, the easier it will be for your child to learn what they are suppose to do and master potty training. So, even when you are traveling, they have to stick to the same routine as they did before when they were at home and potty training.

This can sound difficult, however it is not as hard as it may seem. Depending on how far you will be driving, you want to make sure that your child uses the bathroom before they leave the home. You do not want them needing to go and this gets your child into the habit of using the potty before leaving the house. Make sure that they use the bathroom and then also bring along a portable potty chair or folding potty seat for them to use too.

A folding potty seat is perfect to use when at restaurants, at friends and families homes, while at the store or anywhere else. The portable potty seat can easily be placed on the toilet so that your child can still go to the bathroom at their scheduled times. These also come in a large variety of patterns and characters, so it can match the potty chair that your child has at home too.

There are also other travel potty chairs are perfect for children that are still using a potty chair at home and are more comfortable on a chair than on the toilet with a potty seat. These also come in different colors and patterns to choose from, so your child can pick one they like best. These portable potties can be used on the road too, since they are similar to the potty chairs that are used when camping even.

However, there is also the option of using a disposable potty chair too, which can make clean up easier. These are very easy to take with and they are made of a sturdy cardboard that can be used when there is no place to stop for a bathroom, such is the case when traveling long distances, from state to state even. These are easy to open and your child can sit on it just like a regular potty chair.

No matter what you choose to use, you need to make sure that your child still uses the bathroom at their scheduled times, even while traveling. So whatever the schedule is to go to the bathroom, the stops need to be made and they need to go. This includes being out too and stopping as well.

You never want them to have to hold their potty; since this could result in an accident, as well as this will frustrate your child that the rules are changing. It will teach them that when they leave their home, they do not need to potty like they do at home. This is not want you want; instead you want them to go, no matter where they are at.
