Necessity is indeed the mother of invention. On last night's episode of Bethenny Ever After the new mama took a break from her meal to change baby Bryn's diaper in a restaurant's tiny restroom. With no changing table available, she covered the floor with her changing pad and went to work, only to wonder how she was supposed to use the bathroom while holding her tot.
The scene was eerily reminiscent of my first meal out with my lil one. I confidently strode into the restroom with my baby and diaper bag in tow, only to find the requisite pull-down table missing. I balked at putting my infant on the dirty floor (even if it was covered) and tried to come up with a different method. I managed to balance my son and his changing pad on my lap while sitting on the toilet, only to wonder how I was supposed to then use the facility myself. Let's just say it took a lot of coordination! Now, I'm sure to check out the Sit or Squat app before entering a restaurant with my kids. What was your toughest diaper change environment?
