A mum has been left disgusted after witnessing another mum changing her child’s nappy in a cafe.
“My face must have been a bit of a picture because one of the women looked at me as if to say ‘what?’
“Feeling I had to justify myself, I said ‘it’s just that it’s a bit grim changing a baby’s nappy on a cafe table’.
“The woman doing the changing asked if I was a mum. Instead of saying ‘what difference would that make?’, I said I had two children.
“She said she didn’t realise I was watching(?). I said it was more of a hygiene thing, but yes, it had put me off my lunch somewhat.
“She replied that it was ‘only a bit of wee’… The loos were ten paces away, full changing facilities and pristine.”
The disgruntled mum took to the Mumsnet Forum to see if others thought she had the right to confront the lady about it.
“She’s absolutely vile, partly for changing the nappy on the table but mainly for the ‘are you a mum?’ aka the belittling of childless women, as though they have less right to not want ***** nappies being thrown about while they’re eating.” strongly agreed one user.
Infact many were in support of the woman, “gross and nasty. And the person running the cafe should have put a stop to it!”
Despite the large amount of support, some thought that it was a bit of an exaggeration, “I don’t think it’s grim or vile or anything like that, but I do think it’s extremely impolite.”
Do you think it was fair for the mum to confront the other woman?
