Re: How do you EC in public?

I just dump the pee in a patch of grass.... I figure if it's okay for dogs to pee in the grass then it certainly is okay for DDs pee to end up there. Poop... good question, can't wait to hear responses as we've just started doing the whole potty in the car thing. I'm not sure what I'd do... probably somehow get it to a toilet.

My problem is she uses the potty almost everytime when were home. We have a small ring that fits on the big potty and she sits there until she's done and then says "all done". When were out in public she's nervous of the "big" potty because she has nothing to sit on and I have to hold her up. What do you mamas do when your out in public? I saw this neat potty that fits over a big potty and folds up for easy storage. Here is the link:
What do you think of this? Has anyone ever tried it?
We have this and love it. DD has no trouble with it -- no pinching or anything & I love the handles and the fact that it folds up so well keeping the germs to a minimum! She didn't think twice about using this in a PR.

Re: How do you EC in public?

I just sit DD on the big restroom potty. I have started keeping some of the Wet Ones sanitary wipes in my ag and I wipe the potty on first and then sit her over the side or if I have to go at the same time I will sit her in the front of me and we both pee together.

Im not big on the parking lot peeing. I have done that 1 time with DS and that was only because the poor guy was about to pee his pants at the Bass Pro shop and couldnt make it to the potty and I had him pee on the tire of my moms car.

Re: How do you EC in public?

I find peeing in the parking lot unacceptable. Isn't public elimination against the law?!

Re: How do you EC in public?

I was going to ask the same question! DD is only 3mos old but I just feel silly making our cue noises in a public bathroom. But I definitely do not want to lug around a portable potty and deal with the mess. So maybe I will just have to get over it and start making those noises! lol. I really want to be able to go diaper free!
