How do I use the toilet on a plane when traveling with an infant alone?

There's no space in those tiny toilets so I'm confused about how to use it and have a baby in there too.

This is a long-haul flight!

This. There were couple time that didn't work out for me, though, I waited until the stewardess wasn't busy and asked if she minded holding baby for a second right outside the door.

I would purchase one of those baby carries that strap to ur chest and just pee with him. In that situation I wouldn't be shy to ask a flight attendent or even someone who is sitting close to the bathroom to hold my baby. Its not like they can run off with him...but that's just me! Either I'd pee super fast

 Wow, I'm not sure what I would do either. Amazingly, I've never had to pee on an airplane. So I have no experience with bathrooms on the airplane.

Buy a wrap or a sling and wear your baby.

Wear baby, let the flight. Attendant hold him or a nice passager. Lots of people are willing to cuddle your baby for a min

If you leave your jacket and only bring baby to the bathroom with you, you can hold baby and pee. I haven't gone on a plane yet, but I had to bring my son into the bathroom with me almost every time for the first few months because I couldn't leave the two kids alone together. Hold the baby with your non dominant hand and get the toilet paper in your hand before you start peeing. It's a pain in the ass, but it works. I couldn't use the baby carriers when I went to the bathroom because even as a newborn his feet would have gotten pissed on. If you can wear baby sideways (like a cradle hold) then that would work and be easier than holding the baby.

 I'll be traveling long-haul so I don't think that's healthy for my bladder, but I will certainly not drink too much. Maybe one sip each hour ;)
