My little girl will pee at a public toilet when we go out. Now can someone please give me advice on the logistics of how to do this. I normally try to use the handicapped stall because it is bigger. Given there is no where to put her down I find myself struggling to get her out of the sling, undressed, hold her clothes diaper and wiggling baby. Then she pees and I have to somehow reverse this whole process, I can't seem to find a smooth way to do this. My DD is just shy of three months old. Thanks.

Well, I usually try to find a bathroom somewhere that isn't a large public washroom, just a single bathroom (if that makes sense). So if I'm at the mall instead of going to the food court bathroom which is really big, loud and busy, I either go into the Starbucks which has its own dedicated washroom or into the nursing room which also has 2 smaller individual "stalls" that are actually their own little rooms. Not always an option obviously, but that's what I do when I can. If I have to use a busier washroom, I either undress DS on my lap, same as you. He's big enough now that I can just sit on the toilet after he pees and get him to stand on my lap while I pull up his trainers and put on his pants, etc. When he was smaller I either took him out with a bare bottom to a change table or sat on the toilet and used my lap as a change table facing DS's legs away from me so he couldn't kick off my chest and push himself off my lap. It gets easier once DC is a little stronger for sure!

I have the same problem! I lay baby on the floor to get him dressed and undressed. I look for a private place (ie no one can see me laying baby on the floor because I know nosy people here would say it was too cold to lay a 3 mo old on the floor). I carry a fold up changing mat with me and plastic bags or travel potty (in case there is no toilet or sink in the changing area). There are places I avoid (sadly, this includes one of the public libraries) because there is no way to potty DS until he can stand assisted. I am sure this phase will be over soon.
