A travel potty can be not only very convenient for you and your child, but an excellent way to help your son or daughter stay on track during the potty training process. Here are three important benefits.
The first benefit is that a travel potty allows you to continue potty training your child whether you are at home or on the go. If your child is potty trained exclusively at home, he or she may have a hard time translating what they have learned when outside of familiar territory.
A second important benefit is that you avoid having to use public restrooms which can be filled with dangerous bacteria and germs. When your child has his or her own potty to use, you can avoid these potential health hazards.
A third benefit is that when you are away from home it can be a real chore or inconvenience to find a public restroom when your child needs to go potty. With a travel potty you can easily set it up within seconds and avoid having to hunt down a restroom.
There are several things you will want to consider when shopping for a travel potty for your son or daughter. Take into account how well built the potty is and also how comfortable it will be for your child. Some travel potties are on the small side, so if you have a tall or older toddler make sure the size of the potty is appropriate. Finally, take into account how easy it will be to store and carry around with you as you travel.
A travel potty chair can quickly become an asset you do not want to be without. What parent has not been on a road trip with a child who inevitably has to go to the bathroom and cannot wait? There is no bathroom in sight. What do you do? What about when a public restroom is available? Do you really want your child’s chubby little hands and tushy touching all those germs? There is an easier way. A travel potty can be a lifesaver.
I wish I would have had a travel potty seat when my first child was smaller. He always seemed to have to go potty when we were in the middle of nowhere. Luckily, we could let him go beside the car on a side road somewhere (most of the time). It would have been great to have a portable potty chair when that was not an option. With my daughter, however, that was never an option. We needed a way for her to go potty while traveling. I absolutely detest public restrooms, and I did not want my sweet little girl having to use those facilities.
Travel potty chairs can come in very handy any time you are away from home. There are several different ones to choose from. If you plan to be in your SUV or car most of the time, a chair that folds up and uses disposable bags would be a good choice. There are several brands to choose from, some of which have their own bags with absorbent pads in them to keep the contents from spilling. If you don’t want to be concerned with keeping bags, there are small chairs that have spill proof lids that you can empty. They are made to be easy to clean.
If your thing is getting out and seeing the sights by walking and using a stroller, there are some travel potty seats that can fold up small enough to fit in a bag or stroller. This makes it very convenient to go anywhere with your toddler.
When you think about it, a travel potty chair is a great idea. It is a virtual germ free way to ease the troubles of your little girl or boy. Most of them are small and neat. Choose the one that is best for you and your child. Happy traveling!
