Travelling with My Carry Potty This Summer

Posted by Amanda Jenner

If you're in the midst of potty training your toddler, the prospect of travelling can seem daunting. But with the right preparation and mindset, travelling with My Carry Potty can be a smooth and stress-free experience.

Here’s how to ensure a successful journey with your little one.

Getting Ready for Travel

Before you set off on your summer adventure, make sure you have all the essentials to make potty training on the go as easy as possible:

1. My Carry Potty

  • Why It’s Essential: My Carry Potty is the only leak-proof potty, designed to be fun and engaging for kids while providing convenience, discretion and practicality for parents. Its portability makes it perfect for travel, ensuring your child has a familiar and comfortable potty wherever you go.

2. Training Pants

  • Benefits: Training pants, like our My Little Training Pants, are a great option for travel. They are more absorbent than regular underwear but less bulky than nappies, making them ideal for small accidents while encouraging independence. Training pants also help in building the 'mind-bladder' connection by allowing your toddler to feel the wetness in their training pants, as opposed to the dryness of a nappy.

3. Wipes and Cleaning Supplies

  • Must-Haves: As I'm sure you already know... Always have plenty of wipes and sanitising products at hand! Accidents happen, and being prepared ensures you can handle any situation quickly and hygienically.

4. Fluids and Snacks

  • Why Important: Keep your child hydrated, especially in the summer heat. Offering fluids regularly helps maintain the potty training routine and prevents dehydration.

Setting the Right Environment

Creating a conducive environment for potty training on the go is key to maintaining consistency and reducing stress:

1. Plan Your Journey

  • Preparation: Map out your route and identify potential potty stops. Familiarise yourself with rest areas, parks, or family-friendly restaurants where you can take potty breaks.

2. Dress Comfortably

  • Ease of Use: Dress your child in loose-fitting, easy-to-remove clothing. This makes it easier and quicker for them to use the potty when needed.

3. Keep the Routine

  • Consistency: Try to stick to your child’s regular potty routine as much as possible. Regular check-ins and potty reminders can help maintain the habit even while travelling.

The Potty Routine on the Go

Establishing a routine is crucial, even when you're away from home:

1. Morning Routine

  • Start Right: Begin each day by encouraging your child to use My Carry Potty. Explain that they can use it whenever they need to, just like at home.

2. Frequent Check-Ins

  • Stay Vigilant: Set a timer for regular intervals (e.g., every 45 minutes) to remind you to ask your child if they need to go. This helps prevent accidents and keeps the routine consistent.

3. Encourage Independence

  • Empowerment: Teach your child to communicate their needs and to use the potty independently. Praise them for their efforts to build confidence and reinforce positive behaviour.

Dealing with Challenges

Travelling with a potty-training toddler can come with its own set of challenges. Here’s how to handle them:

1. Accidents Happen

  • Stay Calm: If accidents occur, remain calm and reassuring. Explain that it's okay and part of the learning process. Clean up discreetly and continue with your routine.

2. Use Positive Language

  • Encouragement: Avoid scolding or showing frustration. Instead, use positive and encouraging language. Reward your child’s successes with praise, stickers, or small treats to motivate them.

3. Adapting to New Environments

  • Flexibility: Be prepared to adapt. If you’re at the beach or a park, set up a discrete potty area. Use My Carry Potty’s engaging designs to make the experience fun and stress-free for your child.

Travelling by Plane

Flying with a potty-training toddler? Here are some additional tips:

1. Flight Preparations - "Can I take My Carry Potty on a plane?"

  • Essential Tips: Keep My Carry Potty handy and ensure the latch is slightly open to prevent pressure build-up at high altitudes. Always ensure the potty is empty before the flight.

2. In-Flight Routine

  • Consistency: Encourage your child to use the potty before boarding and during the flight if necessary. Pack extra training pants and wipes in your carry-on for easy access.


Travelling with a potty-training toddler doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. With My Carry Potty and a bit of preparation, you can enjoy a smooth and successful journey.

Remember to stay patient, positive, and flexible.

Every trip is a new adventure, and with the right approach, you’ll create wonderful memories with your little one.
