    Ours has 2 communal tables which i don't like to be honest. there are also male and female toilets but i think this is the norm tho..? there's nothing communal as i think it would be over crowded..

    I just change DS at the pool , I just put a hooded towel over him so it covers all his bits and dry him with another then get him dressed, there's only 1 parents room at our pool and it's always busy so it's just easier to change him in the open!

    I used to do this too, with a hooded towel over their bods when my daughters were little, as the parent change rooms were busy.

    I take my boy in the female change room. It's quite spacious. No way I'm changing him by the pool when I caught a weirdo by himself (no kids or others) with his camera filming kids a few months back.

    At the pool DS does lessons at boys over 6 are not allowed in the female change rooms/toilets - my DS is 5 but looks 7 and gets filthy looks now when I take him to the toilet in there!

    6? How many parents are comfortable sending their 6 year old to the toilet/to get changed alone??!
