I was once out to lunch with someone with a baby who said cheerfully you don't mind if I change him here.  On the restaurant table.  With olfactory evidence it was nasty.

She was offended when someone said yes, go to the parents room.

I effectively cancelled a friendship with someone who changed a nappy at the restaurant table.
Specifically for getting narky when the waiter politely pointed out that there was a fully equipped baby change room at the back of the very busy, rather upmarket restaurant.

She feels that she is entitled to do whatever she wants now that she is a MOTHER.

Tiresome

The woman in that image should have been forced to buy every single item on that table

I've changed a wet nappy (no poo aka no smell) in the pram in a food court when my Boys were eating but the baby was really upset and i couldn't leave the boys and bringing lunch into a toilet would be less sanitary IMO. I used sanitizer gel and I don't think anyone around me noticed I was quick and discrete.  Eeekk I hope that's not classed as the same thing :/

Now I am having bad mother moment worries....

In the pram is fine

The person I described did it on the sodding table!

Ick ....yeah I'd never go for it on the actual  table and I'd never change the baby in a restaurant or cafe and not go to the change room because there you can leave you food and it will still be there when you get back if I had to drag the other kids with me.

I had to do it on a table in a consular office recently ...

ETA: I had a change may and the room the staff gave me meant the stink was kept away from the public, phew!

i did it on a plane seat - wees only and its because the palne had lots of kids who all wanted to go to the toilet at once. everone else around me was asleep he was sitting on the seat between me and my mum with only 3 seats together

oh and i did once in middle of big w ( i pulled over to a quiet corner) he was 6 weeks we had just gotten heaps of stuff almost finished but he was in his pram

I was in a major shopping centre yesterday and a lady changed her bubs smelly nappy opposite the hallway entrance to the change rooms!

I don't think there is any issue with changing a nappy in a pram unless you know in advance it is utterly foul and it would be polite to retreat to a parents room or a toilet.

It does look a bit staged, but I think its indicitive of how   'me,me,me,the world is all about me'  society has come.

i have done this before.  I think there is a difference between where you can change and wet nappy and where you can change a dirty nappy, not that I would do either in a shop

Hi,

if its on your own stuff fine- so prams, boots of car, and if necessary with mat and extra towels the plane seat like pp said.,

but on tables at restaurants and on top of things for sale no go.  especially when change rooms are available.

I also think their is a difference if it is cloth nappy and disposable as, cloth might be leaking over bubs clothes more, but really both should be taken to change room asap. (not meaning no 3 here)

She probably felt justified because all the parents with prams car spots were filled with cars with no child seats in them.

Or her exceptionally large double wide pram wouldnt fit in the store, let alone down the aisles.

I went for some drinks down at the local pub a few years back. One lady had brought her young baby with her. Right in the middle of a game, she announced that he needed his nappy changed and proceeded to change him on the pool table  mellow.gif

#22 KeepTheFaith

I've had to change DS's nappy in his pram, at my favourite local restaurant, as the toilets are impossible to use. And when I say impossible, I mean an upright adult has to twist their body to get in the door, and there is no way a pram could fit inside, and there is no bench to put a baby on.

I try to do it discretely and quickly, in a corner.

But never ON the bloody table!

#23 AMPSyd

Posted 18 January 2013 - 08:36 AM

I have seen a baby changed on the floor (OK, they did put a cover/blanket in the floor beforehand) in the children's area of a public library.

I have done pram changes before.

One of my pet peeves is people who use picnic tables at the park to change their baby nappy.  Tough luck for the next people coming to use the table.

#25 Feral Alpacas

I've become a pro at changing a no. 3 in the boot of my Camry. For some reason the posture of her seat makes DD2 do her poos in the car. Never on a restaurant table though, yuk!
