"As the mom of an almost 4 year old and twin infants I find it horrible to have to use public toilets. The gripe lies in the hand washing setup in nearly every place we go. A short person, like a child or a little person can not use the sink with out assistance. I have to lift my daughter to the sink every where we go, the soap, sink and towels are usually completely inaccessible to anyone under 4 feet tall."
I have noticed this. I usually wipe off the sink and lift up my son if I have to. Usually our problem lies with the soap. If it's back by the mirror, he can't reach it. The single sinks work much better. Target comes to mind. The sinks are all accessible and there is a low paper towel dispenser. The grossest part is when he has to sit on the toilet. I have tried using the little papers for him, but that just doesn't work when you're five-years-old!
Does anyone else want to chime in about dealing with public toilets and kids?
