    You ASSUME the mother had no other choice and was doing the best she could. You're basing that on even less insight than I had. So you could very well be wrong too.

    Hearing everyones thoughts I am starting to think about different factors (Roses poo explosion etc). But assuming the best of a person, doesnt make that JUDGEMENT any more accurate ...

    I wouldn't really have an issue with it.

    In her circumstance I would change in the boot or passenger seat rather than footpath, but maybe she couldn't fir some reason.

    I've changed DD on the floor of toilets heaps of times. I don't see what alternative there is if you're at a place with no change table, and you're there for some time (e.g., at a restaurant).

    In those circumstances I usually put a mat or heaps of paper towels down, and her bottom doesn't touch the surface (in a nappy change) anyway.

    I've also changed her on a park bench and on the grass.

    I'm not a germophobe, and not concerned about a baby being naked in public. I'd try to be discreet for the sake of other people (who may not want to see a yucky nappy).

    Meh. Do people really get themselves in a tizzy about a child being changed on a footpath? Really?

    Obviously, it's not ideal, but neither are those germ infested change tables inside public parents rooms.

    I have never done this.....when the bum is covered in poo, why would you want it going straight onto the fresh nappy?

    Agreed. I make sure the bum is clean as and then out the clean nappy under the bum

    OP i would prob think it was a bit strange if I saw it but also think we have all been desperate at times so this lady was prob in a rushed situation. And prob had nothing to put under the toddler (maybe popped out quickly and didnt bring nappy stuff as she was only going out for 5 mins)

    I don't think I'd do it myself, but I don't think I'd think anything if I saw a parent doing it.

    I wouldn't simply because of it being uncomfortable for me to crouch down and I do not think that it would be appropriate with people walking by.

    The germs side of things would not bother me, chances are my son crawled along footpaths and then put his hands in his mouth as a baby so his bottom touching a footpath would not do him any harm.

    My thought goes to, I hope that she cleaned up after herself and bub. I would be offended if she left the nappy on the ground....seen it happen many times on the side if the road, footpaths...now that makes me almost vomit!

    Im not worried about the possible disease scenario of a toilet loo floor. It was the best option vs guaranteed nappy rash if I didn't change it before a 9hr flight. Airplane loo and change tables freak me out more.

    Can't remember about the restaurant... Bub was about ten days old.

    With DD, I always kept her bum in the air until it was clean, and then put it down on the clean nappy.

    If I needed to rest it then I put it down on the folded dirty nappy. So, I'd open up the dirty nappy, wipe what I could WITH the nappy, rest her bum on the front of the dirty nappy (which is a clean bit), then lift bum up and finish wiping, get rid of dirty nappy, and then stick clean one under.

    Hope that makes sense!
