What do dads do to take their toddler daughters to the toilet in public places without family rooms? Also, where do they change at pools?
I'm not comfortable with our girls going into men's toilets or change rooms but not sure it's ok for their dad to use disabled toilets either, which seems to be the only other option. Confused on this when I'm not there!

I think disabled toilets are fine if there is no parents room.

My husband takes our 4 year old daughter into the disabled toilets if a family room isn't available. Most places we go have family rooms though so it hasn't been too much of an issue. I think it's ok to use the disabled toilets in this situation.

Disabled toilets if no parents room, luckily our swimming pool has family change pods.
I was at work once and I went into the bathroom and a man was in there with his daughter, he yelled out "I'm just in here with my daughter, sorry!" I was like it's fine don't stress I don't care, so that wouldn't bother me either, but I don't know how dp feels about that.

Each has cubicles so I wouldn't see an issue with dh taking daughter to male toilets cubicle. No one can see a thing. In regards to getting dressed I just do it in a quiet spot with towel around them.

I mainly don't want our kids in the men's room because a) men's rooms always seem dirtier and b) plenty more male creeps than female (and perhaps c) - I'm paranoid ).
DH would definitely just go with the disabled toilet, if parent's room not provided. It's a lot roomier in there too so makes sense. Sometimes though baby change tables are only available in the women's room, so if he has to, he'll go in there - cautiously!

DH uses the disabled toilet if there's no parents room available. I find a lot of disable toilets will have the change table now too.

I have no issue at all if a dad comes into a girls toilet to take his daughter. Really there is nothing to see anyway as girls are in their own toilet.

I have no issue with a dad using a female toilet with his daughter. The only time I've encountered it the dad cracked open the door to main area and called out that he was brining his daughter in. I thought that was pretty well done and meant no one got a shock when they walked out of the cubicle.

My DH takes our daughter into the disabled toilet if there's no parents room available. He tries to avoid taking her into the men's as there might be men using urinals which she would have to walk past - DD wouldn't care but is likely to make some innapropriate comment! At the pool if all the family rooms are full he will just change her under her towel by the side of the pool and she can have a shower when she gets home. My DH would never venture into a ladies toilet or change room, he would just not be comfortable.
