Sharing is caring!

Finding a travel potty for toddlers is not as daunting as you may think at first. There are several really good, practical options for going out with little ones. Whether you are planning a camping trip, a road trip or out on a day trip, this guide to the best travel potty for toddlers will help. We’ve also included some foldable toilet training seats too.

How do you travel with a potty trained toddler?

We have gone on long car journeys and even plane journeys with a new in training toddler. In fact, her very first number two was in an airplane toilet – a surprise for all of us, considering how unfamiliar and noisy they can be!

But first things, first. Accidents can and will likely happen, but plan ahead and travel with a potty training toddler will be a breeze.

The Best Travel Potty for Toddlers

Tips for traveling with a potty training toddler

  • Encourage your toddler to use the potty or toilet before going out.
  • If on a road trip, break up the journey every hour, so everyone can try to go.
  • Use a car seat piddle pad, or liner which is a remove-able cover and bring a spare one
  • Consider lining the car seat with a puppy pad.
  • Bring extra changes of clothes, wipes etc

What age should a toddler be potty trained?

Please don’t worry if your child isn’t potty trained at two! Some may well be ready, but more often than not, around three is a general average age. However, it’s not age but physical, developmental and behavioural milestones that can mean your child is ready to potty train.

What is a travel potty?

There are two main styles which normally take up less space than a regular potty you would use at home. A travel potty needs to be small and easy to carry.

  • Normal potty  but with travel features like a case, or handles, with collapsable parts.
  • Toilet training seat – these are used on top of a normal toilet seat and often have hinges so they can be even more compact.
  • For boys, a portable urinal only option is available too.

Is a travel potty necessary?

Do you need a travel potty? You can get by without for some places, but in a park, long car journey, camping in the middle of the night etc the next stop may not have facilities, so a familiar potty may help keep the confidence to go when needed.

In a hurry? Here are our top picks!

Top recommended travel potty is the Potette Plus. It’s easy to use, can be used as a standalone potty or can fix to a toilet seat. Easy to pack and take abroad. It comes equipped with a carry bag and super-absorbent, disposable liners with carry handles.
