    Default Toilet training and the car...

    How did you manage toilet training and car rides. Currently if it is a short trip I will get her to wee before we go, long trips I have been putting a nappy on her. We have had a few accidents on short trips so I was thinking a waterproof liner for the car seat. Can you recommend a good one? TIA

    This was the hardest bit for sure! I had a folded up small towel/hand towel in there for a while which wasn't great cos it still wet through. I'd take her to the toilet before we left home and ask her constantly in the car if she needed to go. I think she only had 3/4 accidents in the car though and I just washed our cover (bit annoying though!)

    Babyhood have one, I think it may be called an "oops pad" or something and its specifically made for toilet training. I had 2 when my daughter was toiket training, one on the seat and one in the boot just in case!

    I used to just fold up a regular sized towel to place under DD1 in her carseat case she had an accident.

    It seemed to work and I didn't have to do it for very long.

    We use car seat protectors from Close. I've got two so I can be using one and wash one. Just pop it in the washing machine. I use it in the pram too - adds a bit of extra warmth these winter mornings as well as protecting against wee.

    I bought a car seat protector. I can't remember the brand.
    I also used to keep a potty in the boot for road trips.

    I bought a cheap, basic potty and kept it in the boot along with: a packet of wipes, an old softdrink bottle filled with water and a packet of nappy disposable bags.

    She would go to the toilet before we went anywhere but if she needed to go while we were out I would pull over on the side of the road where safe, or park near bushes or gardens at the shops. We have an SUV so she would sit in the back of the boot and did her business. If it was a wee I would use the water bottle to rise and wipes to clean her, then put the rubbish in the small nappy disposable bag. If it was a poo I would scrape into the nappy disposable bag and wipe clean with wipes and water. Throw bag out once we got home or near a bin.

    In the case of accidents in her car seat, well, she never had one. But I did keep a thick hand towel under her seat when she started training just in case.

    I tried to ovoid putting a nappy on her, it sends mixed messages.
