  • i have boys so no sitting here! now that i think about it, i don't think they have ever had to poo in a public restroom. not sure if they just want to only do it at home, or if we have just been lucky.........hmmmmmm................BUT, i would use the toliet paper to cover the seat, just as i do for myself!

  • Antibacterial wipes. I get the travel size Wet Ones from Walmart/any store that carries them to keep in my purse. I also keep a travel size bottle of hand sanitizer for use after we walk out of the bathroom.

  • I bought my son a foldable travel potty ring (he's almost 3 and still learning to use the potty) which I always wipe after use on both sides. He does pretty well with it! Only thing is there is no grip to attach to the inside of the toilet ring. Maybe thats a good thing. I would have thrown it out by now if it did LOL

  • I'm not worried about myself or my child getting germs on our butts, we just sit right down

  • We all just sit on the dang pot. Name one person whoever died from sitting on a public toilet and maybe then I'll give a dang, but till then as long as it looks ok, I'm sitting.
