    Once they were both out of nappies we used the regular toilets as I didn't see the need. I suppose on the odd occasion if toilets were full we would use them.

    Mine range in age from 4 to ten and I've got both boys and a girl and the logistics of taking them all to the toilet from a practical and safety POV can prove tricky in big shopping centres - so if I'm on my own with them I either take them to a parents room or use the disabled toilet.

    There usually aren't a huge amount of people/kids when I go in but If I walked in and saw it was crowded, I'd take them to the disabled toilet.
    TBH, I'm pretty strict about everyone going to the toilet before we leave but occasionally it happens.

    As a PP mentioned, I wish centres would cater for the growing amount of parents of children (not just babies/toddlers) that want to use a parents room rather than send their older child into the toilets alone or bring older children (of the opposite sex) into the male/female toilets.
    It shouldn't have to be so difficult!

    So can my mum take me in (I'm 30) because she is my parent? Parents rooms are for babies and toddlers who need their bums changed and not children who can use a normal sized toilet!!!!

    I only ever used parent rooms if I was changing nappies. If my child was toilet trained, I used the women's toilet. End of story.

    A lot of parent rooms have an adult toilet and kids toilet so they aren't only for parents with babies in nappies.

    While I stopped using them for a while with DS when he was no longer in nappies, as he got too old to take into the female toilets with me but was too young to go to the mens on his own (from around 8-9) for about a year I used the parents room for him again. His safety was just as important as parents with toddlers etc. Having said that I never encountered a queue for the toilet there either before or either and if there was people queued I would have copped the wrath of people taking what they considered an older boy into female toilets. Unless myself or my child had a disabillity (such as when he was on crutches) I would not use disabled toilets ever

    So why do they provide an adult sized and child size toilet if they are only for feeding and changing nappies?

    I was busting to go to the loo yesterday and someone was waiting outside the ladies, so I ran into the disabled toilet. I am almost 37 weeks. I have been taking my kids into the ladies toilets since they started school. If no one is waiting and you or your kids have to go, whatever is available is fine I reckon, especially if you just have to pee.
