  • What are some of your must-haves for traveling with FA?

    I recently had to travel to a cousin’s wedding that was two hours away by car.

    Whenever I know I will be in a car for an extended period of time or longer, I make sure that I know where the rest stops are prior to leaving. This way, I will be prepared if I am experiencing urgency symptoms of having to use the bathroom. I also like to make sure I have enough legroom, and that the temperature of the car is as moderate so I feel comfortable in my own skin as I can be.

    I used Charmin’s Sit or Squat app to find family restrooms. I went to check the name and the app no longer functions. So now I need to ask if anyone can recommend a new one. It’s very helpful on road trips.

      That is a great idea for an app! We make sure to carry a pillow to sit on and a blanket because my son is usually cold and I’m hot 😂

      I wish they still had that app!
