One time after a lovely lunch at Panera, which Max mostly let me finish before demanding his own meal, I went to my car to nurse him. I drank my water, ate my cookie (I LOVE Panera Bread cookies!), and enjoyed the quiet time nursing Max. Well, his meal went through him very quickly and he started rumbling and farting from down under to soon let loose. It was one of those blow out situations, I knew it! The worst part was sitting through the smell while he continued to nurse. He finally had his fill, I grabbed my changing pad, wipes, and a new diaper, and headed back in to Panera to use the Koala Kare table in the bathroom. Have you ever noticed there is rarely a sign for a changing table in a Men’s bathroom??? I set him down and went to work. Needless to say, he filled his diaper and I only had a few wipes left. I almost had him changed when he decided to sprinkle the changing table. As I tried to keep him on the table and pull his clothes out of the way so they did not get wet, I wiped and sanitized everything else with my remaining wipe. I pulled his clothes back on, grabbed my mound of trash, and got out of there as soon as I could. From then on, I would take my whole bag with me just in case more wipes or a change of clothes was necessary.
Here is what I think you need!
