    It's not illegal to use the parks without a child/pram. I do get annoyed when I see people do so, and flash them the stink eye, but I certainly wouldn't leave a note or make a passing comment... Because, at the end of the day, they are in their rights to park their if they wish. It's simply a 'courtesy' park

    If I find one free, I park in it, but if i don't find one free, i move on and park anywhere else, and push the pram, & walk dd. no big deal, i don't let it ruin my day if i have to walk. And yes, I also have a 3.5 year old which always tries to run away from me.

    Oh but they do. All the time. Which is why so many shopping centres are trying to make it easier and safer for parents with young children.

    With two very little ones, I now try to avoid going to a shopping centre at all unless I have DH or someone else with me to help. Thank goodness for online groceries!

    It's such a shame I'm not really on the hub any more...if I was I would totally nominate this for the funniest post of the year award.
    I wish I'd given up on the tv earlier...there was nothing interesting to watch on tv and if I'd given up earlier I wouldn't be needing to go to bed and could be entertained for so much longer.
    Thanks for the laugh crysanthemum...you're gold!! 32 posts in and I fear your time on BH will be short lived. Enjoy it while it lasts hey!

    Seriously?

    Arguing over car parks is indeed a 1st world problem.

    Good idea. It is up to the parents to keep their children safe, not shopping centres, and if you are unable to control two on your own then it is very smart to wait until you have that extra help available.

    Yep I have used them when I have had bubs in prams. I would not use one noe with my boys not in prams. Yes they have more room, but I can get my 3 & 5 yr old in and out of the car safely and the shopping easy enough in any other place. It does annoy me if people are there with kids that are older. Anyone with smaller bubs, even with out a pram I would not worry about. It is a convenience thing when you have a smaller child. I think any mother of a infant should be able to get in and out of the shop as quick as they can with or with out a pram. IYKWIM!!

    P.s Edit: I have just read the past posts as I posted before I had read everyone else's opinions. WOW!! If I was to pull into an unmarked spot and the person in front of me had small children in there car i would let them park closer. I know we all have legs and heart beat and I don't care if it is trying to get mothers to shop for more. As a person who shopped for 3 months worth of supplies, when I had kids in prams, it was far easier to park in a spot closer to the door. Simple. It would be easier with out children also I know, but that little bit of help can be a life saver some days.

    Here's the heads up - shopping centers do not provide PWP out of the goodness of their hearts - they do so only a public relations ploy and to get the mummies in to spend money.

    Have you ever wondered why the little car/trollies are just inside the door where the PWP's are situated? It's all about the money - its only about the money.

    do you see how many women with kids and prams are in westfield...
    do you know what those women do? they spend loads and loads of time and money in the centre.
    without mums those shops would be dead during the morning..lol..

    so parking, mums rooms, childrens play areas, kid membership, little push around cars and baby trolleys all make you feel like you belong there and westfield is an ideal place to hang out with your child...

    it aint cause they feel sorry for us..lol

    I don't know, I was pretty grateful for a parents with prams park when I was lugging around a baby capsule and a broken hooha.
