Not something that I have used myself, but a Yachty friend uses a bucket lined with a bin liner, and then places a large size disposable nappy in the base to absorb liquid and to stop any sloshing around as the yacht pitches and rolls whilst out on the rivers and esturies.

It is only ever used in dire emergencies, and then the bag is disposed of in the dog waste bins when he hits shore.

This question also brings to mind as to what should be done with adult incontinece pads on sites? There are a lot of disabled people out there that have to use them and still enjoy the camping sites. We have come across several couples over the years who have one partner so severely disabled that their only way to holiday was with a Motor home and the poorly one tucked up in bed inside, but still enjoying the change of scenery and sights and smells of the campsite, 

Not all sites and public facilties have disabled washrooms, and even when they do, they often lack a disposal bin for this purpose, my daughter works with adults with learning disabilities and this is a constant problem for her whilst out and about with her service users.

Yeah but this means that they take even LONGER to decompose.

I would love to know what do for the best really but there isn't really a perfect option as far as I can see.


Re-usable nappies - can't see how these would work on a campsite. I couldn't get my washing cycle organised enough to use them at home, taking them camping just boggles my brain

Potty for the toddler: not been camping with a potty trained toddler yet - thinking about how many trips I do to our upstairs loo to empty contents, anyone got any top tips?


I can't see that wrapping in plastic bags makes much difference to the decomposing, most disps don't decompose very quickly anyway. And the back will quite likley be ripped by the time it gets to landfill.

As for cloth nappies - we've camped and used cloth nappies an number of times - didn't find it hard to manage the washing -if it's sunny hang up to dry, if its wet in the tumbler.

but no there isn't perfect answer, and also bear in mind that it it just a few weeks at the most in the year - in terms of our overall waste output, it's limited.

As for potty training, I really can't remmeber anything much about that - so it must have been easy enough :-)

I am planning to take my 3 'in nappies' toddlers away.I will be taking a potty for them with me, however it causes tremendous fights over whos sitting on it now im reconsidering. We use up to 12 nappies in 24hrs... imagine those in washables!


Take three different colour stackable potties, take up same amount of room as one. No arguments then!! Just don't trip over them.

We take two stackable washing up bowls, one for washing dishes and one for washing us, if needs be.
