    - 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've changed dd1 at her christening at the back of the church on a pew. I didn't want it to leak/explode on the family heirloom gown and on the priest.

    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.

    Clearly the mother did the best she could for her child at the time. You don't know the details so you shouldn't judge.
    This is the problem with mothers judging other mothers.
    And yeah, I'd rather change my child's bum on the ground then leave them stewing in it.

    The level of judgment just astounds me, though it really shouldn't.
    Pmsl, makes one fearful of ever sitting on concrete again!

    I would say because I was there, saw the situation and were aware of the nearby options... I am in a better position than you to judge whether or not the mother did the best for her child at the time.

    Not saying my assessment is 100% accurate...., just wanted to point out that you're not qualified to make your judgement either

    I'm sorry there's NO way in heck Id change my baby on a toilet floor. I would be too worried about catching diseases.

    Was the restaurant nappy change a nr 1 or nr 2? Nr 1's OK, I don't agree with changing nr 2's where others are eating.

    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.

    Judgement is a fact of life. Its natural. Everyone judges every day. Sometimes people get it right and it saves them from getting in a dangerous situation. Or sometimes its not a big deal or they get it wrong or whatever.If someone says they never judge I'm calling BS on it.
    - 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!
