A US parent found herself in a difficult situation when she decided to change her baby’s name in a restaurant
We’ve all been there. You’re out and your baby needs a nappy change. It’s not always the most convenient place or time, but it needs to be done.
That’s the situation US mum Miranda Sowers faced in a restaurant. She decided to change her four month old next to her table – and was asked to leave by staff.
Miranda was there with her young baby and two older children, found no change table in the bathroom so decided to change daughter Reagan on her chair as a last resort.

‘I thought you know what I've got my own changing pad, she's tiny, she fits right here on the chair. So I laid her down quickly and quietly changed her diaper,’ she told KHOU.com.
But staff at Brother’s Pizza Express in Texas maintain it wasn’t quick or quiet, and customers complained about the smell. So they gave the family their food in takeaway containers and asked them to leave.

‘How would you feel. You're sitting there eating. I don't want to lose all these other customers because they see a dirty diaper,’ said a relative of the restaurant’s manager.
So what do you think? Was Miranda unreasonable to do this, or did the restaurant overreact? Have you had a similar experience? Let us know on the comments board below.
