This portable potty was recommended to me a few years ago by a friend who is always in the know when it comes to kid stuff. I'm so glad because it has come in handy more than once on road trips with the kids. It's appropriately called, "Travel John." hehe Seriously though, it has saved my car and my sanity when we travel.
...like the time we were half way home
[FOUR hours into an EIGHT hour drive]
from vacation and realized we forgot the laptop so we turned around, picked it up, and drove back home. Do the math - that's a 16 HOUR trip! - with two kids under four.
It was really helpful when I was potty training my little girl and we were no where near a potty. I'm about to start potty training my baby (deep breath!). So, I bought another pack and thought you may want to know about this, too.
We live far enough from civilization that it's kinda cruel to say, "Hold it until we get home." So when I hear,
"I gotta go peeee...my 'bwadder' is fullll",
I pull over and use one of these instead of the complete hillbilly act. The beads turn into a gel (kinda like when a diaper is wet) so it won't spill.
Oh, and when she mentions her 'bwadder', I know she's serious.
Don't ask me how I know this.
It's also good for vomit.
Please don't ask me how I know this either.
If you're traveling with young ones for the holidays, it's definitely a great help on the road. I found mine here.
I hope you're all enjoying some nice family time this week.
