I've shared bathrooms many times, when backpacking and as a family we camp a lot and share bathrooms.
But I think, if I could afford it when staying in a hotel on my own with a child I would pay the extra to have a private bathroom.
Have you thought about using Airbnb? There are some great place on there, whole apartments or room and ensuite for less than $120/night. I'm sure there would be lots of suitable options, just need to make sure they are ok with a two night stay...

Not sure if yu will havea car, but there are CAT buses for easy transport around the CBD
Wow I never thought of gastro! I think I am going to go with the single bathroom. I would hate to have to leave ds alone and I pee almost constantly lol
Also what sites are you using to search? I've used hotel club several times before,
I've tried hotels combined, hotel club and tri.vago. it sounds sill but I have never booked my own hotel. Even the easiest decisions lately seem so hard
How about wotif and lastminute? Even when not booking last minute they can both have some good prices. Even more so if you choose a mystery hotel.
Not sure of when you're actually going, so prices may vary but here's an example of what I found on wotif..

ETA, same price for a double bed. Depends what sort of bedding you require for you and DS
This place is top of my list though. They will supply a cot, bedding for the cot and I can call warm water up to my room for the bottles, and get them cleaned for me.
Pregnant for the first-time?
