Disposable changing pad keeps car seat clean(er) during potty training

Amazon: Huggies Disposable Changing Pads - 8 countI'm sure Candice speaks from potty-training experience:

Care to not wash your car seat as often when accidents happen during potty training?  Stick a disposable changing pad (Huggies makes them) in the seat.  Waterproof pad bottom makes it easy to keep that seat cleaner than his pants.

Oh, the pants.

My friend mentioned that the hospital sent her home with a big stack of "chuck" pads and she's been using them as on-the-go changing pads. I don't know how easy they are to buy or if they're cheaper than the Huggies, but they would probably work for this, too!

After our son was born, a nurse at the hospital gave us some "chuck" pads and told us to use puppy house training pads instead of disposable changing pads. They're just as absorbent and are *way* cheaper than the Huggies featured here (we had both for a time as someone included the Huggies pads in a newborn starter pack).

Anyway, we buy a 50-pack of unscented ones at Target every few weeks for our changing table at home (we only change them out when they get dirty). It makes it quicker and easier to clean up when your baby decides to pee or poop in the middle of a diaper change. I'm sure these would work well for the same purpose hacked above.
