    That's fair enough. These kids were much older than 3 and looked very capable of wiping themselves

    If you did that here not only would things be stolen off your pram but you are likely to have whole pram stolen and this is not from poor neighbourhoods either.

    @Marigold that sounds like the perfect use of a parents room! That's why they usually have an extra large cubicle with a kids sized toilet.

    Default Parent Room Rage

    Actually seriously? Are you people actually serious?!
    Giant double twin pram here, and I can't hold twins on my lap while peeing even if I was to leave the pram outside the cubicle (because I certainly wouldn't be leaving my babies in it while I was in the cubicle) so... Yes. 🙂

    (Note - I am not suggesting using it if there was free toilet available in the parents room that fits my pram, I am just saying that I have absolutely no guilt for using a disabled toilet when there isn't enough room for me elsewhere. Because what's my other option? Not leaving the house?).

    Edit to add - just read your other responses where you make it clear this is not the situation you are referring to!

    Whoops! Moving right along, nothing to see here! 😂🙄

    This!!!!

    Disabled toilets aren't just for the disabled! Those in wheelchairs should have priority but it's not made just for them. I would use one if there wasn't a parents room or if the parents room was busy as I can fit my trolley and DD almost 4 (who incidentally HATES sitting on 'adult toilets' as she's still scared of falling in) and DS 16 months. Trying to do that in a regular ladies toilet would be a nightmare.

    Fair enough be appalled at using disabled toilets if an able bodied person sprinted past a person in a wheel chair to get there first and use it as they didn't want to wait for a regular toilet. But I'm pretty sure those in a wheel chair wouldn't expect that they would never have to wait for a toilet, if I were in a wheelchair I'd hardly think a parent with kids (or anyone for that matter) was rude or out of line to use it and making me wait.
    @Mamasupial I would have been as annoyed as you were, not necessarily as they were using the parents room but because they didn't do the courteous thing and check if you were okay and wanted to skip past

    Sigh. Last time I will say it. I was saying I can't believe people would use the disabled toilet OVER the parent's room. Please read my half dozen or so posts stating the. exact. same. thing.

    But why is that so unbelievable? I just honestly don't get why this is such an outrageous thing to do.

    I think it's unbelievable that once your child is over three or four then the toilet police come for you!
    Makes me so thankful I live in the bush sometimes!

    In all seriousness though I think that parents rooms and wheelchair accessable rooms differ from place to place and peoples expectations of what those rooms are for obviously differs.

    For me? When I'm alone in a city shopping centre and any one of my three need to do a wee, I will take them to the parents room. The alternative is not something I feel comfortable with and parenting rooms are gross! When I had infants/toddlers I never, ever used them. So currently, I use them out of my necessity as a parent.

    I'll also use the wheelchair accessible toilet because we can all fit.
