Traveling with a Potty Trained Toddler
We didn’t want this to hold us back from our road trips but we sure did have to be a bit more on top of our game when it came to road tripping with a two year old potty trained little one.
Never do they have to go potty at the right time…I mean really, we just passed the exit to get off and stop, or the next exit sign is clearly what looks to be 10 miles away…ok maybe I’m exaggerating just a teeny bit, but I think you get my point!
Create your very own DIY Road Trip Potty Kit- Have a designated spot in your car for this little kit. We keep it at the foot of her seat down below so we know where everything is at, at all times!
- Small Potty – keep this in the floor board next to their seat so it’s easy to access when you pull over
- Keep extra clothes and undies handy- keep extras handy, you don’t want to have to unload the entire car to find a pair of undies or a change of clothes, that is not a recipe for a fun road trip.
- Wipes– Keep these handy for wiping, accidents and clean up

More savings = more road trips, right? Woohoo!
- Huggies Pull Ups- stick a Pull Up on them during nap time in the car so you can ensure no accidents and who knows they may just let you keep the Pull Up on them longer than normal and this will buy you some time knowing that if they have an accident they have a Pull Up on.
- Water Proof Changing Pad- set this on their car seat under their bum, if they have an accident it prevents it from getting all over their car seat (if placed right in the seat)…now all you have to change and clean are their clothes and undies – not an entire car seat cover – that’s brutal!
Here are our tips, in hopes your travels with a potty trained toddler will go a bit smoother than our first road trip did!
- Don’t Stress- if they have an accident it’s not the end of the world it will wash and it will dry. Our little one usually does a lot better than I ever expect! Our last road trip we didn’t have ONE accident, not even one!
- Be Prepared- As mentioned above you’ll see what we include in our DIY Travel Potty Trained Kit, just don’t leave the house with these items so you’ll be prepared.
- Ration their drinking time- In other words monitor it. Set a timer and be on the radar within an hour after they drink they’ll need to go potty. Consider giving them their drink before you know you’ll be stopping for a break and don’t leave their cups in reach to where they just drink all day long. It sounds weird but you have to keep them hydrated but don’t let them just drink constantly!
