In the beginning we got a few women staring, plus occassional comment made but once I explained the reason why everything was fine. For us the worst part is if I need to go as I need leave him unattended for a few secs.
Abroad many have mixed facilities and it is not as out of place.

I have the same problems when I take S out. He is vulnerable and unpredictable and cannot be sent in to the gents unsuperised. We have a radar key and use that if disabled toilets are available. It is a nightmare when the disabled facilities are not unisex and my other bugbear is when the disabled toilet doubles up as a baby feeding/changing area ... I have had to take S in the ladies before and have had to go in the gents to check on him on occasion! It's a wonder he isn't confused of his gender!
