    I know this isn't going to be a popular response, but I would rather DF use the disabled toilets if this were the case.

    I don't think it's appropriate for a young girl to be in the men's room and I understand some women would be uncomfortable with a man being in the ladies room.

    Yeah but the question the OP asked was what if the disabled toilet was not an option. Of course we would all use the disabled. Read the OP.

    Definitely not the women's, a cubicle in the men's and just make sure he has some antibacterial wipes if it needs a wipe down

    Definitely NOT the male toilets. I wouldn't want my daughter walking in and seeing all these men lined up at the urinal. I wouldn't care if a man took his daughter into the ladies toilets, it has happened several times before and I didn't even look twice.

    I think it's a common sense issue with no one right answer. If he was at a big shopping centre no way would I want DH going into the ladies. There are likely to be a lot of quite elderly women in there and it could cause a ruckus. In a more quiet location it wouldn't be such an issue.

    Honestly with 3 daughters it's not something DH has had a huge problem with.

    Yes I totally agree with NOT the men's toilets, it's funny we all have totally differing opinions. If it were my daughter, I would definitely not want her in men's toilets. And if I was standing in line in the womens and a man called out he was bringing his daughter in I would think that it was a wonderful thing to do (provided he wait until anyone had a chance to protest if they would be uncomfortable)

    If there are no disabled toilets I would rather the man take his daughter into the female toilets. As pp mentioned he can give a shout out as he is entering.

    It comes down to the worse of two evils: in a mans toilet there are going to be willys on display at the urinals... Not appropriAte for a young girl to see. In a women's toilet there are cubicles where the door can be shut. So IMO female adults have no excuse to whinge. If there is a female child with the door open then either get them in the habit of closing the door or if that is not possible the mum can close the door as the dad is walking past. Anyway unless the kid is stripped off,with the mum in the doorway surely there wouldn't be too much too see? If the mum has left her young daughter in the toilets by herself that's another issue - Shame on them!

    OT but why would you think it wonderful that a father was taking his daughter to the toilet? DH has done it too many times to remember. I didn't think he was being wonderful but just being her dad.

    I agree with these. Women's are all private closed cubicles, I would have no issue with a man bringing in his daughter for her to use. But as a PP mentioned, sometimes other young girls could be using the facilities with the door open, so I think the man just calling out first avoids any awkward encounters.
    I'd rather my DP took our future daughter into the women's than the men's.
