As parents we tend to be over cautious about every little thing when it comes to our kids, but this is a serious issue that every parent needs to know about. It’s so upsetting that you have to be concerned about safety in public bathrooms, but that is reality.
We spotted a post on Facebook where a woman warns parents about marks on baby changing tables. Jessica Wayman urges all parents to always wipe down or a lay a blanket over a baby-changing table before placing a child on one. She explains that the black marks are from burnt spoons. Addicts use these as tables while they shoot up. There could be residue from heroin/meth whatever, and other harmful bodily fluids.
Jessica continues to explain that she is a recovering drug addict herself. Along with people using the changing tables as tables while they shoot up, they are also OFTEN used by addicts to bust drugs out and crush them up upon. So again, be cautious.
Drugs are such a huge problem in our country right now. Addicts will go to any lengths to do drugs and not think twice about anyone that they are potentially hurting…including innocent babies.
Next time you go into a public bathroom to change your baby, make sure you wipe down the changing table really well before using….especially if you see marks. Also use a cover/blanket. Thank you Jessica for sharing this important information with us.
