I came across this giveaway contest over at momsational.com
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!
