Sometimes toilet-training is easier while on vacation. You have more time and patience, baby is often a bare-bottomed beach bum, and you are not so concerned about messes. One of our children trained during a week-long beach vacation where going without diapers was appropriate beachwear. Some children relapse while on vacation. If this happens, delay until you return home. If driving, take along his potty chair, since little bladders need frequent pit stops. We have precious pictures of our trainee sitting on his throne in the back of the family van doing his thing. A folding, plastic, adapter ring that fits onto an adult toilet seat is useful for going in strange restrooms. Also, remember that a change in diet during family vacations is likely to bring about a change in bowel habits, either constipation or diarrhea, and a corresponding slump in training progress.
A message for young and old: Don’t forget to leave home with an empty bladder.
