Q&A: How can I keep up the potty training process while on a roadtrip?
Our family is taking our 3-year-old on a road trip this summer, with two days of full-time driving. Do you have any tips for making the potty situation easier? She is nearly completely trained, but I'm wondering how we might prevent accidents (and stops every two hours).
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but my best advice with a newly trained child on a road trip is to plan to stop every two hours. You may want to take his potty chair with you or you can purchase a portable toilet seat adapter. Take extra clothes along in case he has an accident. You might even consider putting him in a disposable training pant for those long two-hour stretches.
Regardless, you do best traveling with young children of all ages when you stop every two hours to allow them to use the toilet, run around a bit, and have a snack. Remember when traveling with kids, it’s a trip—not a vacation!
