    I would have been waiting at least 15 minutes.

    There were more parents with school aged kids in there than parents with prams.

    Default Parent Room Rage

    It's a parent's room though, not a 'parents of toddlers' room. If I have both kids (ages 3 and 6) I will often use the parent's room especially in busy centers because it's far easier to keep everyone contained. If it's busy, it's busy. If there hadn't have been a parent's room you would have had a far longer wait in a regular toilet queue.

    ETA couldn't you have used the regular toilets and taken out toddler out of the pram and brought them into the cubicle? That's what I would have done.

    If my 4 year old (nearly 5) needs to go and we are on our own we go to the main toilet, but if I have my 22 month old with me, I use the parents room as he creates havoc. I'm nervous of the day that my eldest needs to use the Mens' as I'm not ready to wait for him outside the toilet. Were there many mixed sexes, as that may be reason why they use the parents' room.
    Also when I was pregnant I got in to the habit of asking for seats etc if it wasn't offered and I felt unwell. It was tough at first, but there's no point fainting in the middle of a train, if it could be avoided by having a seat.

    She doesn't really stand on her own properly yet so she would have had to sit on the floor or my lap. Pass!

    If the parents room is getting that busy then perhaps the centre needs to have more of them. I wouldn't be angry at parents using the parents room toilet, I'd be thinking the facilities are inadequate for the number of customers.

    I do not understand why there is generally only 1 or 2 toilets per parents room though. Why can't they make the toilet rooms a little smaller and then have at least 4.

    To me a parents room is a place to feed and change babies and toddlers in nappies. Once your child is out of nappies and uses a toilet you shouldn't need to use a parents room. Just my thinking.
