When taking my 5yr old boy swimming at our local pool we always try to find a family cubicle but if ones not available i will take him into the ladies with me. I thought this was just the normal as i always see other moms doing this even with slightly older boys. I read a magazine article the other day saying that at around 3-4 moms should be covered up around there boys. This really got me thinking what else can us single moms do. We cant send them into the mens by themselves. I am perfectly comfortable changing infront of my son. What do other moms do?

What magazine, just curious? We have some bizarrely Puritanical views on the naked body in the US. There is a big difference between nudity & sexuality but we don't seem to be able to draw that distinction. You should follow your own good instincts. He's 5 years old, you're his mom - if he sees you naked, so what? This isn't going to scar him in any way. And you're right - he's much too young to be in the men's room without you.
