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!

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????
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?
