While parents rooms are becoming more common in a smaller mall it was actually often easier to find a disabled restroom &ndash; which while offering space often didn't feature a changing table.</span></span></p> <p></p> <p><a href="http://www.bentfabrication.com/pram.html"><span style="color:windowtext;text-decoration:none;"><div class='p_embed p_image_embed'> <img alt="Image003" height="247" src="/images/2011/03/image003.png?w=300" width="314" />
