An Australian mother has shared a “sexist” find while shopping at her local Bunnings store.
Posting on TikTok, mum Madi pointed out that the “Parent Room” had been included in the same room as the women’s toilet – as opposed to the men’s toilet.

Footage shared by the shopper shows her pointing out that there’s an “Accessible Toilet” for people with a disability, as well as a “Male Toilet” and “Female Toilet”.
But a closer look at the ladies amenities showed that a sign for the “Parent Room” – with nappy-changing facilities – had also been placed on the door.
“Apparently Bunnings thinks men don’t change babies,” wrote Madi in the caption with her post, adding the hashtags “#sexism #dadsoftiktok #dadschangenappiestoo”.
7NEWS.com.au understands that most Bunnings stores have its nappy-changing facilities in a gender-neutral toilet area.
Madi’s observation followed a previous post by TikTok user @power.to.her who asked people to share “some things you’ve noticed that are blatantly sexist but are so normalised within society”.
The mum responded by saying “When the baby change table is only in the women’s toilet” in some restaurants and stores.
She followed up with another TikTok, pointing out that the “Parent Room” was included in the ladies room at her local Bunnings.
‘Makes zero sense’
Responding to Madi, another TikTok user said: “Oh my god, yes!”
Added another: “I’ve never thought of this before but OMG it is actually very inconvenient because many fathers so take out their baby.”
Said a third: “It makes zero sense because what about single dads?”
While this mum found the nappy-changing facilities in the ladies room of her local Bunnings, 7NEWS.com.au understands that this isn’t the case at all stores.
It’s believed Bunnings usually provide a parents room set-up in the unisex or accessible toilets so all parents can feel welcome to use facilities while shopping.
