How do your little boys use the bathroom in public?

My 2 1/2 year old sits to pee. So in public I have to completely undress him. Well his shoes and pants. Is there an easier way I'm missing???

  • Then should I hold him up? He's small.

  • DS only stands in public restrooms (or outside). We have him stand on the toilet seat and lean WAY forward (so he misses his pants and shoes), and go in the toilet. He's getting better about being able to sit.

  • And yes, we're supporting his weight. We stand behind him with our arms around him (we have to aim his penis for him).

  • Mine always just sat facing forward. We taught him to 'tuck it' . We used his hand to point his penis down so the pee would go into the toilet and not spray out.

  • Not sure about the shoes?? You could just pull his pants down like we do. Start by practicing like that at home. Maybe even practice standing too.

  • I let him sit and hold his hands.

  • It just seems like if he's sits with his pants on he's going to pee all over himself because his legs won't spread that far. Standing him on the seat sounds like a good idea.

  • I had the same problem so what I ended up doing was pulling his pants down and holding him up to the tolet and telling him to aim at the water now that hes three hi stands at all times so it will get better.
