As for adults though ive heard about it happening in India more. Im sure the same happens in the slums of Manila too. Sometimes people just don't have access to a toilet.
I agree that babies wear pjs or baby trousers without bottoms ( there's a big hole where private parts are shown ). It is weird and funny because the babies aren't wearing nappies either so parents carry them exposing their private parts and just imagine when the baby pees or poos, goes straight to the Mother's arms or buggy because there is no cover and no bottoms too.
From what I noticed, Parents and Grand Parents let their toddlers pee in public even if the toilettes are just near.

It's a bit of a fad with some parents in the US, too.

That parents let their kids pee in public ? Do they let their kids pee in indoors too ?

Oh, yes I've known parents who simply let thier kids run around in the house naked, poop and pee all over the floor. Usually they are renters, anyways, and have no long-term plans to stay there. Then they whine to some free legal aid they didn't get their deposit back!

We own/rent property, and would sooner rent to people with a dog than untrained children!

Historically pooping and peeing in the streets was normal for most of Europe's history, so there shouldn't be anything strange about people doing it today in developing countries. As you can see here or better still here a quick search on Google finds other examples today of similar behavior and there are many European cities where people readily accept that young ones need to attend to an urgent call of nature on the sidewalk or street so it doesn't necessarily indicate that one culture is uncouth when in fact at the end of the day it merely ensures that the young one in question is comfortable and healthy. This is actually a sign of a caring society however you may wish to question why then if it is so caring do businesses in the area not offer to let the moms into their bathrooms to allow the young ones or old ones for that matter to do their business?

There is a bigger problem in China than in many other areas. Their government is not doing these educational campaigns to get their people to learn to be better when abroad just to be sure they have a clean image, it is because there is a massive problem with all of those things that are considered very dirty or low class by people in most other countries and by even many who are younger or more educated within China. My wife is from mainland China and the first time we went back there she had to warn me of all the uncouth things I would see, even she knew that there was a lot that Chinese are known for doing that most others do not do. So the government is truly trying to make a major change in the habits of its people with these campaigns.

The craziest stuff I saw was on our most recent trip to China in December 2011. We were in Beijing to catch a connecting flight to Guangzhou, but there was heavy fog so most of the flights were cancelled. So we went down to the ticket counter to get in line to try to re-book on a flight the next day. In any other place you'd have agitated passengers for sure, but they would stand in line orderly, talk amongst themselves, maybe grumbling about the situation but that's about it. It was weather, after all, causing the cancellations.
But there? Hoards of people were pressed up against the ticket counter in a big mass- no lines at all. They were yelling at the ticket agents, and if the agent was talking to one person someone else would slap him on the arm to get his attention instead. It was pure absolutely low class chaos, and it was the norm- security was not called, the ticket agent did not look as if he thought this was crazy at all- it was another night at work for him. This went on all evening, people were even climbing back behind the counter standing behind the ticket agent sticking tickets or itineraries around in his face while he was already trying to help someone else. The yelling went on and on- my wife and I tried to get into a line, and each time we made it up to the counter someone would cut in front of us, with absolutely no regard for us, no acknowledgement that we were even there. Finally we got so sick of it after a couple hours that we stood our ground and would physically block others from cutting in front of us, but instead of getting the hint they just pushed harder until they did get in front of us- and this was even happening when we were actually at the counter talking to the ticket agent! The others got in front of us, and took over, and the agent then just focused on them and we were stuck having to wait yet again.

According to my wife this is the common way that people act over there in situations like this, even she refers to it as extremely uncivilized compared to how people act in this situation pretty much anywhere else.

Understand the case mentioned.
I see Taiwanese and westerners' bad behaviours in Asia too.
