    I'd say you can use them for sure. I'd say they are "pram aged" type thing. Because "parents" can mean great grandparents really - you are always a parent. Can't be parents with babies because you almost need it more for toddlers!!! So PWP I take as being if it's reasonable to put them in a pram.

    Thats my interpretation!!!

    This. I use them even if DS is not in the pram because he's a runner it's safer for us to be a close to the entrance as possible. If we can't get a park close to the entrance I have to carry him which Is becoming backbreaking!

    I do if I have either or both of the girls. The idea is that it's safer if the park is wider/closer and I think that applies to trolleys or prams equally.

    I have been known to write notes when it's obviously a non-parent in the spot (no car seat etc). I even said "nice pram" to some guy getting out of a sporty car with no car seat, child or pram once. He was rude enough to park there but actually felt guilty enough when confronted to lie about it (said he was picking up his wife and child!). Yeah whatever.

    use them whenever you want.

    i never do as it evokes crazy psycho women who inspect me and my car and give me dirty looks, untill i get pram out.
    i can see them pen ready, with the passive aggressive note that is supposed to scare me
    into submission..
    drives me batty so i drive to the non judgemental normal spots.

    This!! I once had a lady stop her car behind me and get out yell at me because I was in a pram spot. I told her to come look in the window and see for herself that I had a 1yo inside... She then made a bishy comment about how her 4wd warrants the spot more than my hatch?! What the?! We both had one kid... What difference does our car make?!

    They say "parents with prams" not "parents using prams".. I also think its meant to target an age group of the kids, not a specific requirement that you have to use a pram. More that you should have a child who is in the age group to go in a pram.
