Please tell me I'm not the only one...

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
So today DD (2) and I were at the grocery store. I was wearing her in a Pseudo-MW I made myself and finally got it PERFECT (I have been wearing her since she was 6 months old, and it was never quite right) and then realize I have to go to the potty. So rather than take dd out of the sling (since I finally GOT it) I went in search of a bathroom and did my business all while still wearing my toddler.

So has anyone else gone to the bathroom while wearing their baby, or am I the only odd one?

No way your not the odd one! It keeps them off the yucky floor! I do it anytime I need to. There is no way I would take him off, unless he is on my back, then I would take him off and give him to DH. LOL

Always kept my kids in the sling when in public restrooms

I've done it! Sure got some funny looks coming out of the stall, but hey, I'm used to funny looks by now

I even do it at home sometimes. DD#2 fast asleep in the sling, there is no way I'm going to risk waking her up!

I do it in public bathrooms as well...

keeps her off the floor, and from poking her head under the stalls to see who's doing what, lol.

Oh, yeah, that's what we do. Bleuet would otherwise (and has) pop under the stalls to greet all the other women! Thank god he can't talk much yet, I can just imagine what he would say. ("Hiiiiii!!!!! I'm Bleuet! Are you pooping? Mommy poops too, didja know that? Look, your panties have flowers on them!")

I can't figure out what parents who use strollers do. I have taken Bleuet in the stroller into a handicapped stall, but you're really not supposed to do that if you aren't disabled and needing it. I always worry that some wheelchair-bound person will need it while i'm hogging it with my stroller.

I do this when I'm out, and I have gotten some pretty silly looks. Oh well. If I didn't my curious little boy would be sticking his hands in toilets (wouldn't be the first time though ).

Oh yeah- what are you supposed to do with them? Public bathrooms are janky.

Count me in! It's so handy.

If she's in the sling when I have to go, she just stays there-home or out. She's only 9 weeks though, too, so I can't just lay her on a hard floor in a public restroom. Do what you gotta do.

This is too funny.... I was just thinking about this yesterday, when I was "taking care of business"! I figured I couldn't be the only one... good to know that lots of us do it!

Mallori~ My DS was born the same day as your DD!

Oh thanks everyone for letting me realize how normal (at least among y'all) I am. I don't even use public bathrooms unless it is an ABSOLUTE DIRE emergancy (I drive out of my way to my good friend's house instead)

all the time! i've tried on clothes (pants/skirts) with him in the sling too.
post #19 of 26
Ditto! It's just so much easier to keep them on you. I do it at home all the time too.

Oh yeah!! All the time. It keeps her from playing with garbage on the floor or trying to crawl under the stalls.
