Yeah that is not acceptable. I'm not even sure I'd be okay with that at home. Teaching kids dinner and potty time are the same probably isn't a great idea.

Hmm... this seems weird to me.


Do you both feel the same about changing a baby on the seat of a booth in a restaurant? Or in the stroller next to the table? (just curious)

Yes I do. There is a place for eating and there is a place for dealing with human waste. Just like I don't think breastfeeding women should have to feed their children in the bathroom, I don't think diapers should be changed at the table.

Absolutely unacceptable. There are ways to teach a child to toilet train, and particularly at a public restaurant while at the table is completely inappropriate.
First off, children need to learn when they feel the urge to go. If the kids have a toilet stuck to their tushies, I can only imagine this will prolong recognizing the feeling/urge to go.
Secondly...shouldn't we be teaching our children about hygiene and sanitation? You know, washing your hands after using the washroom?
And lastly, what about teaching kids self respect, and privacy along with private parts? Could you imagine growing up and admitting to your SO one day that your mother used to use your potty as your booster seat so you could use the loo at the table??
I do wonder however, if she was doing this out of convenience for herself. Having to run back and forth to the washroom alone with two twin toddlers could get frustrating...none the less, still unappropriate. NAY!

Ok that's just nasty. Never, ever, EVER. It's not ok at home, IMO. It's definitely not ok in public!!! I have no words.

10000%%%%%%%%% AGREE

I think I would not want to sit at a table where someone exposed MY now table to excretions of their child. I don't even let my child SIT on a table (that's not what it's FOR) let alone think it's acceptable to potty train or change your baby where food is prepared, eaten, otherwise dealt with. It's disgusting. Anyone who thinks otherwise doesn't know anything about fecal matter and diseases or doesn't give a crap. (hehe, no pun intended)

Definitely nay! While I can appreciate that you have to be consistent with potty training, when you are in the midst, just stay away from dining out! Eating out is a luxury, not a need and there's no reason she couldn't have just foregone eating out until such time as they were properly potty trained. I actually can't believe she did this. I know we see it all these days, but come on, if not for the sake of other diners and sanitation, could she have not at least considered her own daughters privacy?

Add me to the nay list just for sanitary reasons alone. I wouldn't change a diaper at a table so I wouldn't potty train there either.

Honestly I will be surprised if ANYONE says AYE instead of NAY. Thats just bad hygeing, an embarassment for the babies, and bad for the restaurant! Babies pooping in a diaper while eating is one thing, but putting a nude child on a potty In a restaurant AT the table is just wrong. That mother should be taking sme parenting classes. No parent is perfect, but that is a serious red flag.

I'm a nay. I will say that I have changed a diaper in the booth when there is not a changing area for a baby in the restaurant, and I'd do it again if I had to. I would rather a booth than a dirty floor. I keep sanitation wipes with me when I have babies for that reason (to wipe off the booth after the change), and I'd never do it on a restaurant table. People are more relxed about that here though, and many of the restaurants are outdoors.
