How to Use a Public Restroom with Your Kid in Tow?

Have you ever experienced the dreaded call of nature when you are out and about with your little one in tow? That's gotta be one of the most horrible experiences - and sadly most toilets here in Singapore (unlike Japan) are not equipped for toddlers/babies.

Have you ever experienced the dreaded call of nature when you are out and about with your little one in tow? That's gotta be one of the most horrible experiences - and sadly most toilets here in Singapore are not equipped for toddlers/babies, unlike Japan, where most public restrooms have a stall with a special seat for you to sit your little one in while you attend to nature's call.

So what do you guys do when you are using a public restroom and there isn't a special seat? How to you use a public toilet without leaving baby in his pram outside the door, or leaving him on the bacteria lidden floor?

This might sound a little weird, but what I do is lower my jeans/pants to knee level, and put one of my son's in each leg of my pants alongside my lower legs. He's kept off the floor, can't escape and my hands are free! A little bizarro I know...but hey, it works! What do you guys do?
