    Default Parent Room Rage

    At what age do you stop taking your kids into the parent room toilet and take them to the regular toilets?

    I'm pregnant, was busting and feel sick, with my toddler in the pram. I had to wait for 3 parents with children aged around 5-10 and there were 3 parents with kids around the same age waiting after me. I was annoyed and seriously considered the disabled toilet.

    Am I just being a cranky pregnant woman or is this pretty common?

    I generally no longer use the parent room and kids are 6 and 4.
    There has been an occasion where ds was busting to do no. 2 and there was a queue in the ladies so I ended up going to parents room which was free and no one waiting.

    I would stop once my kids can use a normal sized toilet. Not sure when that is as my DS is not quite 3 and not TT yet.

    I've been debating starting a thread like this for ages! In all honesty if your child can use an adult toilet comfortably then I reckon you should be courteous to people with little bladders and use the normal toilets.

    I just take my pram/trolley into the normal toilets if it's only the kids that need to go and not me.

    I am not sure when I will stop. Maybe not at 5 or 6. It depends on my kid. Normal toilets are so small and with kids fart arsing around I feel it's rather horrible for them to be using normal toilets and touching sides etc. If I had lots of shopping and a 6 or 7 year old I would probably go the parents room toilet.

    If I was you I probably would have used the disabled toilet. I am surprised no one offered you to go in front of them - how long were you waiting for?

    I think it would be ok to ask if you can go first. Most likely they would say yes.
