    Default Gross?

    Would you change your toddlers pooey nappy .... On the footpath of a busy shopping area without a change mat?

    I'm having a shocker of a day. I Just saw a mum doing this. Her car was right by the footpath. Fair enough there was a 7? year old child in the car and the back of the car was filled with booster seats. I would have either tried to change the toddler on the front passenger seat, taken both kids to the nearest parents room, or taken the tots pooey bum home to change.

    I mean having your child naked skin touching a footpath? God knows who has spat/pi$$ed/whatever on that surface! Ewwwww!

    If toddler was walking and there was nowhere else to lay them down, I'd have changed them standing up. But failing any other option, hell yes I'd change them wherever I could.

    Bub may have had a bad nappy rash and need to be changed ASAP. But even if that wasn't the case, I'd not have taken them home to change. How would you like to sit in your own filth for longer than necessary?

    Ick. No one wants to see that.
    I'm not fussed about germs so wouldn't have thought about that, but yuck, in a common and busy area with people walking past, that's just rude and inconsiderate to passerby's IMO.

    I would and have used the passenger seat to change nappies. Or the boot.

    I would have opted for a seat in the car or even the boot had the car been a hatchback. I've never changed a child on the footpath

    I wouldn't, but not because I am scared of footpath germs....my toddler eats dirt. Kids are exposed to way more gross things that footpaths. I wouldn't because I wouldn't want to inflict his gross poo on anyone else, if I was desperate I'd try and do it behind a tree or something.

    God no! Not only because of germs or whatever but how uncomfortable for the child. I'd change on the drivers or passengers seat and failing that even the bonnet of the car would be better.

    I wouldn't, not because im scared of germs, only because i'd feel for anyone who'd have to see my childs massive poo!! I've always opted to use my boot or a seat in the car.

    I see no reason to put a child on a footpath to change them !! use the other seats of the car ie passenger or drivers seat hell if I can change my nearly 4 old (not anymore now as he's fully tt) on a driver seat of a commodore I see no reason why anyone else can't. IMO that or that all the kids to a parent room.

    Not sure that I would have thought to do that personally, but I'm sure the poor footpath has seen worse and will probably survive, as would the delicate passers by.
