Hi, I have a travel potty and have never had any problems, just dispose of the used liner like a normal nappy. If you can get to the toilets then it also works as a toddler loo seat. I've potty trained both my older girls this way and never had any problems. If you keep some anti-bacterial wipes in the case there is no problem with any mess or smells and fits into a normal changing bag quite easily.
My only other tip is make sure you go in every toilet you pass whilst out and about! My girls always decide they need to go as I join a queue to pay or can't get to a toilet easily, this way I can be sure that they have every opportunity to avoid accidents and I am not rushing with the pair of them and a heavy pram to get in quick.

I totally agree with youngmummy. I used one for my little boy while we were on holiday and now i use it when i look after my niece.

Thanks for the advice. I've decided to get another Potette to use as a seat and / or a spare and another big pack of liners, and just buy a cheap potty once I am at the hotel. Until someone does a silicon one that folds but wipes / washes clean it is my best option.
Any entrepreneurs out there want to develop a silicon or similar travel potty?! Got to be better for the environment than lots of plastic bags and absorbent pads for hotels when you can't take your own for a long-ish stay.

Hi JackieO - I saw it on an website and got all excited but it looks quite bulky to put in a suitcase. I won't get the chance, I don't think, to go and look at one and see what it really looks like but it is the closest to what I want that I have seen, if only the lid came off? It is annoying that even the smallest of plastic potties has an enormous back rest that makes it impossible to fit in a suitcase.
Thank you for your help everyone, very much appreciated.

I've seen it - about size of lunchbox - no big back so could go in suitcase I think. As it doesn't look like a potty you could carry it on journey maybe?
