For those of us who have already started some preparations, this site is super helpful for ideas.
SANITATION: This is one item on my list of future purchases....A bucket seat cover for a little over $10. (Some may prefer to just dig a hole in the backyard and squat)
This reminds me of an idea a friend in Tennessee shared with me regarding "Travelling with Young Children." She suggested putting a potty seat in the vehicle and line the bottom with a plastic grocery bag and a sanitary napkin (or a cloth diaper would work). Make sure you have extra hand sanitizer, wipes and/or toliet paper.
Then, if you have a youngster with a need to "expel" and you're in a remote travelling area OR you don't want to unload everyone to go inside to the potentially unsanitary gas station restroom........simply pull over, let them sit privately (perhaps use a sheet to cover for modesty purposes.) Then tie up the plastic bag (the pad will absorb the fluids), drive to a gas station or grocery store and discretely dump it in the trash. Viola! A stress free solution to accomodating a natural bodily function.
