Grow some balls and get over it.
pretty yukky...and I can't help but think of all the germs and nasties. I guess desperate times call for desperate measures as in the PP case above!!!
I think the key words in the OP that trigger my disgust is "busy shopping area footpath". I really think it's entirely inappropriate to block the footpath in a busy area to lay down a toddler and change it's stinky toddler poo while people are walking in close proximity to you trying to do their shopping. Especially seeing the the mothers car was right next to her.
I've not had to do that before but would if needed. I'm lucky to have a car with a large boot but if it's full I've used the front passenger seat or the bonnet once. It is very hard to use the front seats because of the angle and DS ends up crying and uncomfortable. I've also had to change him on the floor in the toilets when out somewhere that doesn't have a change table. The floors in there are probably more germy then a concrete footpath and just as cold and uncomfortable. DS is always happier laying on the floor though then the front seat of my car. I also don't carry a change mat around with me so he goes straight onto what ever surface I change him on, his bum never touches the ground though, it's always on a nappy be it the dirty one or the fresh one.
So, a mother changes her child's soiled nappy and ends up having a thread dedicated to the event on the internet. Unbelievable.
We might have different thresholds about what we think is acceptable, but Surely there are some places you think a pooey Nappy shouldn't be changed at?
- on the dirty floor of a restroom?
- on a church pew during a wedding reception?
- on a couch at Gloria jeans while others are eating or drinking?
Where's your line in the sand?
I'd never do it but hey you don't what was on the passengers seat and in the boot etc.
Maybe it was a p00 explosion and she just had to get it off..
I'll give her the benefit of the doubt I think
