    I haven't read all the responses but I'd get a huge fright if I was in a toilet cubicle and heard a man calling into the women's toilets saying he was about to enter. How do I know he really has a kid with him?

    I think I'd be too shocked to respond/protest. So I imagine younger women and teenagers would feel quite uncomfortable too.

    I remember having to go to the men's loos with my dad, I thought it was hilarious seeing the weird urinals and yellow urinal cakes. I never saw men using them. If it's a busy enough place with several men using urinals chances are it's a busy enough shopping centre / park and will have its own disabled loo.

    I saw a dad take his 2 primary school aged girls into the men's changing rooms at the pools recently. THAT would be traumatic! Especially considering there are 3 family change rooms at that pool.

    To the poster who said we're all in the wrong for taking our kids into the disabled toilet... What the hell are we meant to do with our prams if we have to go or our kids need to? Leave it out in the hallway with a baby strapped in? Seriously?! We're not talking disabled parking spots here.... It's a toilet. Which 9 times out of 10 has a change table in it. The average person would take what, 30 seconds to a minute in there? Not a huge deal.

    Little OT but they're 'accessible toilets', not just for the exclusive use of disabled people.

    They're there for people who need extra space, for whatever reason and it's not up to anyone else to decide if another persons reason is valid enough.

    Lol not at all. I dislike taking her into stinky public toilets in general. But pee all over the floor and in a urinal grosses me out

    But the smell would be the least of my concern.

    I don't recall that we've ever had a discussion about what happens when he takes our DDs out on his own. I must ask him tonight when he gets home.
    Yup actually i have. While the likelyhood of it coming to that is really slim, given he knows my history, if it came down to the crunch and there were no other options he would take her to the ladies room.

    And thats why i married him. He would do something that made him uncomfortable to make me feel comfortable and safe regarding our children.

    It's a non issue in our household.. No different to me taking ds to the womens toilet.
    This 100%. DH and I have never even had a conversation about it. I just showed him this thread. He is gobsmacked. He says he can unequivocally guarantee that DD has never been traumatised or in danger when in a male toilet with him.

    I've just asked DH what he would do with our daughter. Gave him no option of using parents room or disabled toilet. His response was to screw up his face and say that he guesses he would take her into the men's.
    He said if he took her into the women's there would probably be someone who would report a man in the ladies toilets with a little girl. Then he said he would hate to take her into the men's though because it would just seem wrong to take her in there. He said it's a bad situation because neither seem right to him.
    His first choice. . parents room. .. then disabled.

    Never been an issue - DH takes her into the men toilets. it's actually never crossed either of our minds. He's there with her, makes sure the cubicle is clean stays with her and walks out with her.

    He also pointed out that at swimming there is only mens or womens showers/ open change rooms/ toilets combined. The parents room is pretty much a room with 4 nappy changes in it. He couldn't waltz into the female change rooms with DD to get her changed. If it is just the two of them he can't leave her by the pool by herself while he goes and gets changed.

    I was thinking about if it was reversed and a mum went with her son to the mens toilets so she could help him wee at the urinal, so he can learn how boys do it, and how this would go down at the urinal with the other men .

    I asked DF what he would do with a hypothetical daughter and he said men's.
    He takes DS in the men's cubical if no other option and hasn't yet had a problem with dongs on display.
    Anyone else find it weird that men's loos even have urinals? Why aren't women's toilets all in a row without doors?

    First choice for DH would always be the disabled or parent rooms but if they aren't available he doesn't feel comfortable taking her into the ladies so he takes her into a cubicle at the men's but obviously looks out for men at the urinals first!
