How to Travel with a Toddler Who's Potty Training

Learn how to travel with a toddler who is potty training in this parenting video from Howcast.


Hi. I'm Jennifer Durbin, and I've got some tips for you on travelling with a toddler who's potty training. This may sound really overwhelming, and it can be, but with some planning it will be a lot easier.

So when your little one is potty training, you know that it's very important to keep them on a regular schedule so that they're comfortable and you don't have too many accidents. While you're on the road, remember to set an alarm. Get the little one a potty watch, or set an alarm on your phone so that you're regularly taking trips to the restroom, so you don't have accidents.

Make sure you have plenty of changes of clothes and zip top bags, just in case you do have accidents. That makes it a lot easier to deal with those.

You can also make some fun games out of it. When you're traveling, make a game out of how many different restrooms your little one gets to try. Talk about the color of the floor tiles, the ceiling, anything you can to get your child interested.

Don't forget, it's okay if the child backslides a little bit. It's tough to potty train, especially in a new location.

You may also want to consider travelling with a little travel potty. If you're on a long road trip, you can throw it in the backseat, just in case. Always have a seat cover handy. These are not only entertaining for the little ones, but help if you're caught in a restroom that doesn't have a seat cover.
