A travel potty seat comes in very handy as most families are very mobile, which means their child is “on the road” quite a bit. All this activity would be very difficult if it were not for a travel potty. Let’s face it, public restrooms are often very dirty and uncomfortable for children and adults alike. Having a portable potty that fits on most toilet seats accomplishes three things.
There are several designs for travel potty seats, one of which is a folding system with handles. These aren’t very expensive and really do the trick when traveling by bus or plane. They’re also a good alternative to a portable seat when the car is packed full for a long drive.
It’s soft like a padded system and the ability to deflate it saves space. Cost wise these compare favorably to other portable potties. About the only consideration is that having to inflate the product means that your child has to wait a few extra moments, which sometimes makes the difference between success and failure.
Potty Covers are waterproof, protecting your child from direct contact with the seat. This particular brand also covers the front and side of the toilet, providing further protection.
Most products along these lines come individually wrapped and are made with a combination of fabric and plastic. One of the biggest advantages of disposable toilet seat covers is that unlike many other toilet-top potties, these will fit any toilet design. About the only problem that people report is that the cover slides off when trying to place a child on it.
In considering a travel potty, remember to keep your lifestyle in mind, and also the kinds of potties your child likes to use. No matter how great the design, a travel potty does little good if the child dislikes it.
