    No. There isn't that many spots and I wouldn't want to take one away from someone who needed one.

    I use them if i have DS with me as he is a runner, he is 3 though so i do feel guilty when I use them but he is often still in a stroller or trolley!

    I use one whenever I can get one. (with DS obviously). He likes to walk to the entrance then I put him on a trolley. The ones at my coles are heaps wider so it's easier to hey him in and out.

    I think the general etiquette is that if you have young kids, you can use them. Sometimes it's harder when kids are at that walking stage (or running away from you stage!) to drag them across a car park anyway. At least they are contained in a pram.

    And this is why ANYONE uses them. They are the Centre's way of saying we are being nice to mums. They cannot fine or even Warn a person using them without children as they are usually only found in a shopping centre which is Private property not public so they cannot enforce it. People know this.

    Also the same with Disabled parks in private car parks they have to provide them but can't enforce them.

    what bugs me is when they have shared spots(disabled and parents parking as one) to me disabled and parents should be separate as parents frequent the shops more and there are never suitable parks for disabled customers.
    oR
    When people park there and leave their kids in car with other parent and walk in

    I don't use parents with prams parking unless I'm putting DS into a pram.

    It drives me to a distraction when people either without kids, or without kids WITH them uses those parks. They're there for people who need the space that a wider bay provides.
    I have the same attitude towards people who aren't disabled parking in disabled spaces. You don't NEED the space, so don't take it away from someone that does! It's so arrogant and rude to do that imo.

    So no, I never park in the parents with prams bays unless I have a pram with me.

    Not true for all centers though.
    The ones near us you need a permit to use them and you DO get quite a hefty fine if you use one and don't have a permit
