you can also get radar keys on ebay, i got 4 for about £5 so it means we can both have one on our keyring then a spare to go in his bag for when he used to go out with outreach as they didnt have their own!, we had a proper one but it got stuck at leek bus station and matt wanted get on bus so mark had to leave it there as it wouldnt come out hehehehe, we seem ok in most toilets i seen around here as the changing table might only have a small matt but its a built in wide shelf type so takes any weight and not to high
There comes a point in your life when you realize:Who matters,Who never did,Who won't anymore...And who always will..
So, don't worry about people from your past,there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

Hello Maddies Mummy

I am glad the information was very useful to you. Also look into getting the radar keys as i mentioned besides them being on my car keys i have them in the car in changing bags that i have for our son, if husband driving the car i dont always take my car keys with me. They are worth there weght in gold and I am terrible at giving my spare ones away to others i meet on my travels, so thats why i always run out. You can get ones with large turning handles if you have problems with turning keys or just the smaller ones either are ok.

The changing places are so spacious, they also have them in areas on days out so always check before you go.

I am going to get in touch with my mp (last one wasnt anygood hes gone now) or someone in the house of lords, will let you know how i get on. Also I dont like going into the disabled toilets as these are for either sex - which i dont agree on, maybe thats just me.

Please let me know how you get on and if you need any information on anything or if you cant find what you are looking for just ask.

xxx

Hi, I live in Lancashire and normally change my son before I go out, and change him in the car if I need too. I have just been on holiday to cornwall and had no choice but to change my 6 year old(hes like a ten year old) on the floor, not only cold, uncomfy and degrading, also cramped and sandy.

I am in despair about it all, what about human rights ehh, we shouldn't have to change our special Children on the floor should we!!!! My husbands suggestion this morning was to take disposable mats with us that you can put on beds when toilet training!!!!

I think all disabled toilets should have benches to change our Children on, ummmmm, we need to protest to the government one thinks!!!!!!!!
