Mothers, please read this warning about public changing mats.
This Mothers shocking Facebook post regarding public changing mats has gone viral, and I feel like sharing it with you all might help prevent it from happening again. I’m actually appalled that something like this has actually happened.
Hayley turner wrote this warning to mothers who use public changing mats to change their babies: ‘I don’t normally post things like this but I’m guessing if it happened to me it could happen to someone else, so I thought I’d spread a little word of warning to prevent it happening in the future.
“Today I changed Samuel’s nappy on a public changing mat, somewhere I trust to be a safe place. When I led him down he screamed.
“I dismissed it as him being tired, cold and grumpy so I changed him as quickly as possible so I could give him a cuddle and calm him down.”
She continued: “It turns out some lowlife scum thought it would be ‘fun’ to deliberately put drawing pins in the bottom of the changing mat.
“Our poor baby boy was laid on pins!!! And because he isn’t old enough to tell me it hurt, he now looks like a pin cushion with 5 holes in total.”
I’m 100% certain that this will be an isolated event and not a regular occurrence but spread the word if you know any new mothers who would benefit from being more vigilant.
