    Skin is pretty amazing about protecting us from disease. I certainly don't consider it "filthy" to change a child on a footpath. I bet it wasn't the mums best day ever either!

    I open the front of the nappy and use it to wipe away most of the Ness and then tuck it under hubs bum, so while there might be poo still on bub, most of it is wiped away and ttucked inside the nappy. Then use wipes to clean the rest. When bub is.completely clean, lay fresh nappy under soiled nappy and then pull soiled nappy out of the way, leaving bubs clean bum in a clean nappy.

    I change my baby ASAP usually in the boot. I also use the stroller. I have tried the front seat too but he's only less than 7 months so that's not too bad. I wonder how a toddler will fit in the front seat for nappy change.

    Having said that I will not change on the foot path unless I have a change mat and will it somewhere its not so public. In Melbourne's current weather there's no way I will change my baby outside as its freezing. I drove home and changed bub as soon as I could when he did a poo in the car yesterday.

    The ground is filthy. People's shoes are filthy. I would never under any circumstances lie my child on a public restroom floor.

    The poo, wee and vomit gets 'cleaned' with a dirty mop.

    But that's just me, I hate germs and will do anything to avoid them.

    Thats what I do too...but I dont have the new nappy underneath before taking off the dirty one like the PP I quoted said. I do this then put bum down, bag dirty nappy then put on clean nappy....dress then tie bag etc etc.

    Obviously, it's not ideal, but neither are those germ infested change tables inside public parents rooms.
    Good point. I don't use change tables that are in disable dunnies (eg at maccas). As for parents rooms I have cleaning wipes and a change mat.

    In that situation I change bub in the stroller. I either go outside (nice weather) or find a corridor away from the eating area if its a big place.

    Fair enough. I haven't always found there to be many options. We travelled a lot with DD, and often took a backpack thing that she would sleep in (instead of a pram), and there weren't always uncrowded areas around.

    That's what I used to do but DS has not been using his stroller since about 20 months so you do have to get creative!
