    Default Parents Rooms at Shopping Centres - Vent

    What is the point of parent rooms that have toilet cubicals so small that you cannot fit in your pram? Who on earth designed them? Both of the Parent rooms at Glendale are like this.I hate leaving Benji outside the cubical so much that today I snuck into the disabled toilet so I could keep an eye on him. I'm going to write a letter! grrrr

    what do you mean snuck in? I always use them, I have a pram and two other kids, there is no way I am squeezing into any other toilet...

    as for parent room vents, whats with the disgusting fabric chairs that are so stained that you dont want to sit on the to feed your bub, let alone let their head touch the armrest...

    im also a mum that uses the disabled toilet....

    there is no way in hell will i ever leave my child on the otherside of a locked door.....sorry, but it just aint going to happen, so unless they provide a toilet where i can bring DD into then that is my only option....
    actually a few weeks ago i was out side a disabled toilet that was being used and as the man in his wheelchair came out he looked at me, smiled and said "your turn".... he was happy enough for me to use it

    oh but, at my local shopping centre there is a cubical in each of the normal womens toilets that i can get DD into so i dont use the disabled there.

    Talking Disabled Toilets

    If I have 2 or 4 of my kids with me I always use the disabled toilets. I can easily fit my twin pram through the door. I would never leave my kids outside the cubicle. No-one has ever said anything to me, and so help them if they did!!!

    I use the disabled toilets heaps too! I HATE the one at glendale, kotara is the same.

    But I am fussy ATM - DS is in the mood for distraction - so i need a curtained room, otherwise he is too busy looking at everything to concentrate. I went to Tuggerah on Saturday - Love it, love it, love it!! Esp the toys hanging above all the changetables. He was very happy to lay there very still looking at it while I changed him.

    I'm another that uses the disabled toilet rather than leaving a pram outside the toilet. Just craziness otherwise.
    The new one at Kotara is stupid too as there was no lock, you can easily fit the pram into it though just can't lock yourself in. But the change area is crammed with prams if just 2 people are using them.
    No design thought put into them really.

    Don`t get me started...unless in a big shopping center the facilities are horrific. Disabled toilets often smell terrible too. One thing that has always freaked me out about any toilets in the smaller shopping centers is they are down a back alley away from everyone and I often think a perfect place for a mugger or weirdo to lurk.What is with that??
    Also...and please don`t shoot me here as you all know I luuuurve Australia..but in UK any place serving food or drink, must have toilet facilities so you can at least pee and wash hands..or take children as they need it at any moment as we all know...not get sent off half way around the shopping center to do it.

    I won`t go on about my experiences with Amelia here and changing facilities but others have watched me struggle and began to say how terrible etc....that`s at least comforting to know us Mum`s are supported.......just not very well by the people who should supply better facilities!!

    Must go or will be venting all day

    Esp one with a toddler seat!!! Trying to get ours around the corner into the loo is painful. It has a big toilet I guess, but where you are meant to feed the baby is 3 steps from the bins with the pooey nappies - EEWWWW.
