    Default Would you change your child's dirty nappy in public?

    This is following off from another thread but I'm just curious as to what the results would be. I do not want a debate, i do not want judgements or name calling, i just want your honest answers.

    So, would you change it in public? By public, i mean, shopping centre, park, cinema you get the idea.

    I would and i have. I have 4 young children and sometimes its not practical for me to pack them all off and find an often filthy change room to do it in. I try to be as discreet as possible.

    Poll coming..

    If there is a change room nearby no but if there was no other choice you have to. We are currently trying to organise parenting facilities in our town as there is no other option but to change nappies in public or in the car. So unhygenic and stressful for parents

    Hooray for clean well desinged and looked after parenting facilities, ours are coming soon...

    I would if there wasn't a change room close by. I have done it before and I would do it again.

    Only if I can't find a change room or it's too difficult to get to one for various reasons./

    I think it is FAR more disgusting to have a child carry their solid waste around with them in a nappy then change them in public

    I said depends and as others have said, I would and have it there are no facilities nearby. I would be discreet and still try to find somewhere a little out of the way though.

    It would depending on the circumstances. But ideally I would prefer to use the baby change rooms.
