New and Improved Potty Training

I came across this giveaway contest over at
The Gotta Go Mitts.
The answer to taking your wee ones potty in public places.

According to the website:
Gotta Go Mitts are the best product on the market for protecting your child’s hands from wetness and germs on unsanitary public toilets when your child has to hold on for balance, lift the seat, touch the flush lever, or like most toddlers, examine the bathroom floor and anything else interesting!

Having four boys, I think it's a lot easier to say, "Don't touch the toilet seat." All their apparatus is self adjusting and comes with a 'hands free' device.

It IS hard for little girls to balance on that huge porcelain toilet while trying to simultaneously NOT touch the actual toilet seat and trying NOT to fall in.

Unless you're teaching your kid to levitate, there's going to be some (eeewww) contact. It's a great idea for shopping, vacations, visits to the in-laws, or those times when you forget to clean the toilet.

I wish someone had invented these when I was potty training my kids!

Those are a neat idea. Public toilets tend to be scary places in general and anything to help is a great idea. :)

Public potties around here are starting to install seat sanitizer dispensers. I suspect it's the same stuff that's in the hand sanitizer bottles, just repurposed for a new market.

Those are cute and funny. Wish they were around when I was potty training my kids.

That's a great idea!!

Little boys have it SO much easier!

You know what else would work though? Plastic food storage bags, or buy a box of latex gloves that doctors use.

I am so glad I am passed potty training... those toilet seats are cool though.
