Going to the Bathroom with Baby

A blogger friend of mine (don't worry, she was a real friend first), wrote a blog on the dilemma of going the bathroom when your out with your baby. It's worth a read. She is also a recent addition to the world of mothering and writes about her experiences.

Up until a week ago, I had no experience in this area. That has changed. Even though I have had to get creative with my urinating experiences, it hasn't been as bad as I thought.

Bathroom Scenario #1:
Using the baby bjorn. It first happened at the airport. It was actually harder getting me, Connor and our carry on baggage in the stall than it was going the bathroom with Connor attached. Also, it happened so fast, it wasn't a problem. Now, using a port-a-potty was a little bit harder. The reason for this? I had to "hover" over the toilet, as there was NO WAY I was planning on sitting down! Still, with Connor being so light weight, I was easily able to get by.

Bathroom Scenario #2:

Flying on an airplane. While on the airplane ride from London to LAX, not one person offered to hold Connor or help. That made for some fun times! There are fold down changing tables in all the lavatories on airplanes. They fold down just over the toilet...down to the height of the open toilet lid. Noticing this, I decided to leave Connor on the changing table and crouch myself into the space between the changing table and the toilet. My head and shoulders stuck out blocking Connor from falling off. It worked. In fact, it worked every time I had to go the bathroom during my 13 hour plane journey.

I am sure this is only the beginning of fun/interesting/creative experiences I will get into while raising a baby!

  1. Thanks for the shout out!

    I had to laugh thinking of you squeezing into the remaining space in the airplane lavatory while Connor rested on the changing table!

    What will this new journey bring next!
