"The truth about changetime is, your baby is not as fragile as you think they are! I remember when all three of my babies were first born, I was very timid and afraid that I was going to hurt them. But after watching the nurses change them a few times, something clicked, and I realised that it's not as scary as I first thought.
As babies grow, they turn into acrobats! My youngest is about seven months now, and she will flip her little body every which way as soon as you lay her down for a change. So, you've got to have your diapers, wipes, and fresh clothes ready to go.
When it comes to changing a baby in public, I'm at three different stages right now. I have an almost 12 year old who is very independent, so if he has to go to the bathroom, he can go solo. With Ellie who’s almost three, I have to take her to the bathroom as we’re still potty training. And if my seven month old is with us too, I have to hold her or have her stroller with me too. If I have to change her, I can either change her in her stroller or in the lady's restroom. So it’s a lot to juggle!
My husband has told me that it's difficult for him when he's out with the kids, because in most men's restrooms, there's no changing station or table. So he has to either take them into the bathroom with him, or go back to the car to change."
