    I'd have used the boot but truly if I was having a shocker of a day and the child wasn't having a great day either and struggling around the car then I probably would have used the footpath too. Does it really matter how it's done as long as the child is being looked after and having their nappy changed.

    The poor child. Have some respect for your child and do it a little more descretely. Seriously. How disgusting. Im sure the poor kid loved being changed on the freakin footpath with ramdom weirdo's (pedo's) around. Who knows these days.
    Teaching the kid it's ok to pull ur pants down in public whenever you need to.
    Some people have no clue.

    Haha I hesitated to reply, but if I am honest, yeah I may have? I have never been in this situation so I can't say for sure. I changed my baby on the front seat once which was a nightmare as they are not flat so she couldn't lay on it flat. The boot is too small. When changing a nappy I always put another underneath and wipe the poo with the front of the nappy as I take it off so nobody would actually see the inside of the nappy anyway.
    If I had to use the path, I would put a jumper or something down, and we always have a towel in the boot from the gym anyway so would probably use that. The pram if you had one would probably be the best solution, would save my back.

    Not on the footpath because of it being so hard and cold and yeh filthy..
    But would and have on a car seat and in the boot. With people walking past.if they get grossed out by seeing a pooey nappy then don't look.
    I hate that people say they get grossed out. Well don't look.
    Also I shield from others seeing his private parts but sometimes u do what u can to make your child comfy. That mum might have had a full on day and needed to change the child fast.. Looked around and the easiest place she saw was the ground.

    Since having a baby myself I tryyyy not to judge because anything could have happened to make the path the best option the mum

    the boot, the hood, whatever would be better.
    surely they should have a changing sheet with them too? just imagine the amount of sand/dust blowing into the baby's bum while changing there?

    I'm sure there wouldn't be any sand or dust 'blowing into the baby's bum',

    The level of judgment just astounds me, though it really shouldn't.

    Usually the cement around here gets bl00dy hot ( not as if late been pretty cool and wet)

    I just think there's alot more options available to use then going straight to a footpath to change a nappy on

    Was the child in danger? No? Then really, who are we to judge?

    As mothers/parents we have all had hard days/moments. Perhaps some of us are lucky enough to have no one see our questionable choices/decisions.

    But truly, the women was changing the childs nappy. She obviously cares for this child.

    So easy to pass judgement on others, but really, think about your own choices in your parenting journey. Would it have been helpful to have people give you dirty looks during your harder times?
