You all are living in fantasy land if you think that baby's crap is the only human fecal matter inside the dining area of that restaurant.

I think she could have picked someplace else, heck even her lap would have been better BUT parenting can make you crazy at times.

Boo-hoo, being a parent is a choice. Tough ****. (pun definitely intended.)

To change a diaper in a restaurant AT THE TABLE, regardless, is classless and disgusting and takes it from being "routine" parenting to something that could potentially make others sick.

You do know how smells work, right? One word: Particles. Yup. Particles. Particles of a substance that bacteria find rather tasty, and will feed off of.

IF parenting makes you crazy don't have kids. What do you expect me to say? 'Cos I am not going to suffer in a restaurant that I'M paying for 'cos some woman is too lazy to do change her baby's diaper in the restroom. She was lazy. SHE NEEDED TO GO TO THE BATHROOM AND DO IT IN THE SINK. THEN RINSE THE SINK CLEAN AFTER. That's what they did before the changing "stations" in the restrooms were invented. Nobody did that in public view by the dining table. You're not in your home trailer. You're in public. Have respect for others.

That's why some of us go to places that don't allow parents with babies. Some have closed off areas for them. Separate from the customers who want to enjoy their food in peace.

What would I have done? Wear gloves, wash my hands and dispose of the waste in a sealed plastic bag. Same things I am expected to do when I come into contact with patients I assess and treat.
give me a break, I was adopting him from a third world country and he contracted it from other babies in foster care. He actually was not dehydrated, it was the first infamous blow out of the rotavirus. I didn't know he had it until we walked out of the well baby check.

Let's see, have you been in a doctors clinic in a third world country? Its a little different. I didn't need gloves, not one of the moms adopting in the outbreak wore gloves cause we are not insane. Two of them were physicians.

Give me a break

PS my son is celebrating his 9th birthday so I think we managed to weather the rotavirus well. Hey actually he is turning 9 and never been on antibiotics because I am not a germaphobe.

This thread is 8 pages long and only one parent supports this crazy woman.
Lol

I am getting a lot of positive rep points. People are just afraid to post. I just think y'all are hysterical so I'm laughing at it

Did you know there is fecal matter on chairs from people sitting there?

And cause no one listens, let me say again

I do not support her decision, to change the baby there or to go on tv about it. But I do not think its a serious issue that the woman should be tarred and feathered for.

When my children were young they did not have changing tables in bathrooms and people still did not change their children's diapers inside of restaurants, stores, or other public places like that.
