It's a pita, but since my friend had her ds I've noticed some changes since my last. Unisex changing rooms and in one toilet the other day a double toilet in both toilet areas so that mums/dads and toddlers can go at the same time in the same cubicle.
I'm all new to this So far have not encountered this problem, have found all the places we have been to have its own separate changing room or in the disabled toilet.
If we are out and about and cant find any toilets at all we change her in the pram or car
i find the idea of putting the baby change in the dissabled a bit unfair because its for dissabled people really
i think there should always be a seperate room as big as the dissabled with a loo and a changing station in it for moms and dads or at least a changing station in both the mens and womens loo
im going to work after baby is born and my oh will be a SAHD i can only think of a few places in my town that have a dissabled with baby change or a unisex baby change area.
i wonder what the overall view is on the baby change rooms that have multiple changing areas and seats for breastfeeding? i wouldnt mind a dad coming in to change his lo while i was breastfeeding in one but i can see how some people wouldnt like that
its all a bit sexist when the only baby change is in the womans it seems to suggest that either the nappy change is the womans job or that the man is incapable of doing it and what do you do if your a man and your out with LO and the only baby change for ages is in the ladies? can he use it anyway and would the ladies mind? again i dont think id mind as its not a peeping tom kind of thing just a daddy changing his LO but it is unfair on men and women
sorry this is a bit of a long post but as my OH will be a SAHD i do worry about this topic
oohhh dont get me started - I am soooo hacked off that swimming pools have no facilities in the mens - we cant take the boys swimming now as I cant manage two on my own as they arent sitting yet and oh cant take one in the mens as nowhere to put him ARRGGHHH
If it's on any help, where I take LO to her swimming lessons there aren't any "baby change" facilities or anything, and we were advised to to change them on the floor on a changing mat (as some babies had rolled off the benches etc) As long as there's some floor space in the Men's changing rooms, it could be done that way maybe?
Most changes facilities Ive seen are in the disabled, or a designated changing room. The one in asda has a changing room with a toilet and a private room for BF'ing. Not alot of womens toilets I go into have changing facilities tbh
