I still don't know how to get my son to pee in the public toilet without touching anything. I've held him straight like a plank over the toilet - didn't work, let him use my knee as a "booster" - didn't work, so have resorted to wiping the toilet bowl down on the outside, then layering the front with TP, but he's shorter than the bowl itself so almost always touches the toilet somehow. Ech. And we once used the squat toilet and heck if I know how to get him to pee in there without stepping in or spraying pee on his shoes. I wish I could just have him pee in a cup. So glad Mr 914 handles the bathroom sitch most of the time.

I think a cup is a good idea. I mean, why the heck not? Do what works.

You mean at home, right? Home is fine for us. It's public toilets that I dread. He, like me, only goes #1 at home, thank goodness.
