I've changed dd1 on the floor of a disabled loo in Dubai as there were no change tables avail.
Have changed dd2 in her pram whilst at a restaurant. I wheeled it so no one else could see and it took me about 3min.
Not saying my assessment is 100% accurate...., just wanted to point out that you're not qualified to make your judgement either
Why does a judgement need to be made at all?
There are ALOT of factors which could have had bearing on the mother's decision to do what she did.
I'm not qualified to make my judgement? I didn't know I needed a qualification to reply to your OP? You asked, I answered. I think she was a mother with her hands full, changing a pooey nappy the best way she could, at the time. I'm sure she didn't feel she had any other choice at the time.
I would change on my knee. (I pretty much always changed on my knee, much less strain on my back.)
However I am confused by the "bare behind" comments? Isn't it standard practice to put the clean nappy down first before taking off the dirty one - that way the bottom goes straight onto the fresh nappy.
- Where the conflict comes in is where we have different thresholds of what we think is acceptable. And different thresholds of when we should intervene.
I don't like germs and nearly vomited at the thought of a kid lying naked on a footpath... Eeeeeewwww!
