In a previous blog post I talked about how great it was to have a vinyl pad in your car and a large sized changing pad for the diaper bag when you are out and about. But, for mom's like myself who are on the go especially on foot and with baby in tow, know sometimes that restaurants and other places won't have bathrooms equipped with changing tables. Therefore, it's important to be prepared for the strange, odd and weird as far as diaper changes out of the home would go and expect the worst and laugh hard at times. I literally have sprawled Sarah across sink tops, chairs, park benches and such maneuvering diapers, wipes, anti-bacterial lotion and a wiggly baby. This in and of itself should be an Olympic sport.
Thus, when you are out and about with your baby, and a diaper change is needed, consider local area hotels with larger bathrooms, flat surfaces like picnic tables, benches and sometimes floors (except in bathrooms) where you can lay a large sized changing pad.
Just bring lots of wipes and a good sense of humor.
