For the first time in all my rental years I've been asked by booked guests if we supply a potty, it's not a problem, they say if I don't they'll buy one. I don't, but perhaps I should. Do you supply one?

No we don't and I've never been asked for one. Most of my guests with babies/toddlers are French and bring their own in the car I expect.

Baby bath, high chair, travel cot, 'step' for little ones to reach the sink, but definitely no potty! Surely parents travel with one?

I have cot and high chair and step but not baby bath but we do have bidets.

Why would you not supply a potty? My first though was hygiene perhaps?

We have never been asked for one but can't see a reason why we would not supply one if requested.

We have one that someone left (they had clearly bought it new while they were here). Handy to have. It lives with all the baby stuff. We do ask what family equipment people want to be left out for them but anyone with kids is shown where it all lives, in case they want any extra bits and bobs.

If I find it out when we get back then it gets an additional wipe over with disinfectant before going away (it's always ben clean when found, I hasten to add!)

Yes I supply a potty along with all the other baby equipment. And one of those toilet seat trainer things.

Yes, we have a cot, highchair, step up, 'trainer' toilet seat, baby bath, changing mat and potty.

These are all items left over from our own children so I've just stored them and provide them when required.

The only thing I don't 'offer' is cot bedding on the basis that I probably wouldn't have enough for 'accidents' and think that Mum knows best and babies prefer something familiar.

If they need a potty, won't guests travel with one anyway?

I assumed that it might have been needed unexpectedly...hence the sudden purchase and leaving it behind!

It's a yes from me Very Happy and a child loo seat too. Again it has always been clean and I also wipe it over with an antiseptic wipe.

Many of my guests come with RyanAir so they save money on board the plane by bringing their own anyway Wink
