    Potty training - when not at home

    Hi there!

    Our boy is 2 years and 5 months, and is pretty much pee-trained. He stands up to do it. Everything is fine at home, and he's dry day and night. If we have to go out for more than a couple hours a time, he still has a Pull-up on, but he never has an accident in it.

    The problem we're having is... when we're out around town, the toilets in the ladies and the urinals in the gents are normally too high for him to reach, so he wouldn't be able to do it even if he really wants to, and even with our help holding him up. At times we regretfully ask him to do it in his pants, but he always refuses to. We can see that he's so uncomfortable, and sometimes almost in pain, but he just won't do it. We wish we had a portable stool, but it's just impossible to lug one around town. Is there any inflatable stool in the market that we don't know about???

    May we please ask for some advices from experiened parents out here please? Thank-you very much.

    Sara.

    There is a portable potty made by Tommee, it's called the Tommee Tippee Potette portable fold-away potty, which is foldable and can be put into a bag. You also get plastic liners that come with it. They're available at Mothercare and probably in Bumps to Babes too. Hope this helps.

    Thank-you very much, Joyce and rani. We know about the Tommy Tippee potette, but didn't consider it as our boy would not sit. Now that we think about it, of course we can use it as a receptacle even with him standing up. Why haven't we thought of that before...? Thanks so much for your help.

    Sara.

    I don't understand why holding him up to pee is not an option. With our son, I would hold him up (kind of lifting him up w/ my arms around his waist) he would just pee.

    As for pooing, w/ my son and daughter, if that needed to happen, they would sit on the edge of the toilet seat and I would hold onto them, to make them feel secure. These are for Western style toilets, of course.
