Hi hoping I can get some experienced mommies to help here! I have a almost 3 yr old and another one who just turned 4 this month. me and a couple other moms planned a wonderful trip to disney world with all of our kids and we're leaving today! In total theres i think 7 children including my two girls ages 2, 4, 3, 9, 10 and two 8 yr olds wooo! anyways we're going to be taking two vans and my kids will be riding seperately but my 4 yr old dd will be with me and my other daughter will be riding with the other two moms with their 3 and 10 yr old boys the rest of the kids will be riding with me in the newer van since its a bit bigger. So as you can already tell it's going to be a bit hectic with only 3 mommies haha! Anyways, we'll be driving for a long time all the way from Kansas to Florida, the trip's around 17 hours or so, give or take and we'll be switching drivers off and on. so anyways one of the obvious issues that come up is what do we do for potty breaks? I asked the other moms what we were going to do if one of the little ones needed to go potty and weren't near a rest stop. The mom with the 3 yr old boy told me she put her son in diapers for the trip just in case he had an accident and couldn't hold it. my 3 yr old daughter isnt potty trained yet so she still wears diapers so that isnt an issue with her but my 4 yr old dd is another story. she's day time potty trained but not nighttime trained. Usually during the day if she cant get to the potty in the first few minutes or so she'll have an accident. i dont want to risk it though one because these arent my cars and two because shes sitting near older children I considered bringing a potty seat with us but theres not going to be enough room for it and i dont want her pottying infront of other kids. I also considered doing what the other mom did with her son but im kinda worried that if I put her in diapers she'll think it's okay to use them instead of telling me when she needs to go potty but she thinks I'm over thinking it though.. Anyways, any suggestions moms?!
