I must admit I'm a bit surprised that people object to my DH going into the ladies to change a diaper? The stalls are all closed, and the diaper table is always outside of the stalls (or in the disabled one), so how can he run into inappropriate things? Or am I missing something?
I have never heard of anyone getting mad at mixed genders in the bathrooms... I have seen daddies help their 5 year old girls, etc. It's sort of mutually agreed upon that kids fall outside the rules. We have never gotten even so much as a weird look with DH going into the ladies. The diaper bag and baby make it very clear he's not there for fun
Might this be a Europe-US difference? Or maybe a difference as to where the table is set up?
And yes, we always bring a changing pad. But if there's a diaper table available, no way in heck is my DH going to put our baby on the bathroom floor next to the urinals
Suppose in a few years time, my DH is out with our daughter and I'm someplace else. She needs to go to the bathroom. Is he seriously breaking etiquette by walking into the ladies with her?
It's not like he can take her into the men's.
