Re: How to.. in public restrooms!?

Leaning forward insured that she would pee in the potty and not on the seat, and she could hold tight to my leg to feel safe.
This is exactly what I do too!

I also give her a choice: "you first or Mommy first?" she almost always picks mommy first, in which case, I do my business and then make a big deal out of "OK, it's your turn!"

If she tells me she's all done before she does anything, I make her count to 10 with me before I take her off the seat just in case she does actually have something stored in there
