My son gets dirt and dust on his bare bum when he has nappy time out in the backyard!!
I think there would have been other options but well i cant judge. DD has done a wee in her potty on the side of a road. Sometimes u do what u gotta.... but i still think surely there was somewhere else other than to lay bubs on cold hard dirty concrete.
There are worse things to worry about imo tho

Oh my! No I would never even consider doing that. Yuck!
I would :
a) change bub on the front seat or boot as we have an SUV
b) driven home to change
I know that I've changed DS on the passenger seat and the height hurt my back so much that I haven't been able to do it again.
We do what we have to do, the judgements of other mums who must be perfect isn't useful or necessary.
The concrete is not ideal but as pp said you do what you need to do - there is no way I could change 2.5 year old DS in my front seat he's way to big - plus i wouldn't drive a long way home without changing a poo - I've changed him a couple of times on the grass at a park or on the sand at the beach when there are no toilets/alternatives - I do put something underneath him but it wouldn't be the end if the world if I didn't!
Whilst it's not the best of settings to change a baby's nappy, it really wouldn't bother me too much to see something like this.
At least she was changing her bub, not making it sit in it's own filth for her own convenience.
It was probably me I change em anywhere.
Sigh this happened yesterday.
On my way back to the car from playgroup (all locked up and everyone left) dd2 poo'd. I was trying to get to the car to get the potty as I could see she wanted to go and was very upset. I also had my toddler with me holding to my other hand.
It went everywhere. Out of her nappy, up her shirt, down her pants and in her shoes. And all on me too.
So I did just that. I stripped dd2 down to skin on the sidewalk. Wiped her over with wipes, then towels and changed her. I then had to take off my poo stained shirt and wear just my jacket which I thankfully had in my car. All whilst making sure dd1 didn't run off.
There was no way I could have changed her in the car as I couldn't even locate my car keys without more poo spreading around. Plus I didn't want poo in my car. So grassy bit by sidewalk it is!
I have changed ds in the boot before
