    Anyone think we are the only one's with small children who need to use a toilet when out if the house? Lol my mother had 4 kids and my grandmother 8 not sure what they did when they needed to duck up to the shops with the kids in tow & needed to go to the loo???
    So you never use a toilet when out shopping (because that would mean having to use the accessibility toilet in order to keep your children within view). Wow you must have a bladder of steel!!

    Also my mum had 5 kids. She used accessibility toilets if absolutely necessary. Personally I would rather my child used an accessibility toilet if there was one vacant than allow her to wet her pants. But that's just how I feel about it. Maybe you would rather she suffer the embarrassment so we can leave the toilet vacant. I can't understand that mentality.

    In regard to the accessibility toilets (aka disabled toilets), in our local shopping centre we have 2 parents rooms. One at one end (which I don't ever go near) and the other in the food court (also a fair way out of my way from the shops I usually go to.

    The only others places that have change tables are in the "disabled" toilets. Not sure what I am supposed to do when my dd has poo exploding up her back and the nearest parents rooms at at the opposite end to where I am.

    In this situation...you bet your bottom dollar I'm using the disabled toilet which has a change table and therefore I would assume "ok" for me to use.

    ETA: I would be hoping dh uses this option as well!

    Gah my head hurts.
    As an able bodied person you have multiple toilet options. A disabled person only has one. It's not about waiting, sure a disabled person may have to wait while the toilet is in use (hopefully by another disabled person, most likely not). It's about why the toilets are provided for use by certain members of our community in the first place. It's about asking ourselves "if we should" not "why the hell not".

    If not using the toilet will affect my child negatively then, in my opinion, yes I should. I would never use a disabled parking place etc because that is about ensuring that those with disabilities can access the shops etc easily.

    I believe you misread my post, I never said I don't use a toilet when out shopping. After an episiotomy equivalent to a third degree tear I can assure you my bladder is not in tip top shape!!

    Well im currently heavily pregnant with a 3 yr old and have used a disabled toilet.

    I dont think ive ever seen in occupied in this particular shopping centre.

    Im telling u now once bubs is born i wont be leaving her outside while i take my 3 yr old to the loo - some toilets cant even fit a pram in the vicinity , let alone outside the cubicle.

    How ridiculous to think a mother is being selfish by doing so.

    IMO, disabled toilets are not for sole and exclusive use by disabled people. Primarily yes, they provide somewhere for people with disabilities to use the toilet but that doesn't mean no one else is allowed to use them when they're vacant. If it's empty, where is the harm, seriously????

    These days it not safe to possibly leave ur children out of sight.

    I still dont understand how with a double pram u manage to even get into some toilets let alone have it sitting outside a cubicle? What happens if u are busting to go? What do u do with all the children then?

    Plus it can be bad to hang on to a wee. UTI anyone?
