The 48-year-old TV personality is promoting a popular app called Peanut, which is supposed to be like the Tinder for new moms. It helps new mothers not only meet fellow new moms around them, but to also help them get advice, share information and just be in the know.
Well, Moore needed someone to put her in the know last week about the fact that changing your child’s diaper out in the open, specifically in a restaurant, is not the best idea.
“I’m so embarrassed,” she said in a now-expired Instastory from Thursday. “So I’m traveling to New York last week with Brooklyn. I go in the restaurant to have a bite to eat before my flight and she has a complete blowout. I put her down on the seat, I change her, and the manager comes later with a plastic bag and says, number one, you’re not supposed to change diapers in a restaurant. Ok, who knew that? And number two, here’s a bag for the dirty diaper, and you can take the fecal matter, basically, out with you. I can’t tell you how embarrassed I was.”
While it’s probably not a concrete rule, most people get that changing a child’s diaper, particularly after a “blowout,” in an eatery is not only probably not sanitary, but also something that would likely ruin the appetite of everyone else eating in your proximity. Still, Moore is a new parent, and she may have felt like she wouldn’t be able to manage taking her child to a nearby bathroom in an airport while also having to carry around luggage and having a whole meal to finish that she would have to leave behind. She also put the baby down on a pad, which she clarified later, so she didn’t completely throw caution to the wind, folks.
Still, many people in the star’s comments and on social media in general couldn’t understand where she was coming from. Check out some of the responses to her mommy gaffe by hitting the flip:
