Would you change your kid's diaper on a restaurant table? Add to ...

Dunkin Donuts staff allegedly called the police on two moms who were breastfeeding at a local franchise (which is perfectly legal in the state of New Jersey).

But, according to a post by one of the moms on the CafeMoms parenting website, she later learned the real problem: She changed her baby on a table at the eatery.

While we'd probably lose our appetite for that Boston cream donut if we watched someone remove a soiled diaper from a squirming baby on a restaurant table, we do understand the predicament the mom in question was facing. She explains that there was no change table in the establishment's restroom.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Some parents have perfected the lap change while sitting on the can in a public restroom. Others, in such situations, have figured out how to balance their standing kid on their thighs for a driver's seat diaper change.

Did this mom go too far by changing her child's diaper in the middle of a restaurant? How would you react if you saw a parent doing this while you sipped your double-double in the next booth?
