  • Is this a trick question?

    I'd change any baby that needed changing, if it were in my care, or if mom was busy with another child, or tired, or what have you. If she provided me with a diaper and wipes, I'd use them, if she was out, I'd use what I have.
    When I would watch my friends son on occasion (same age as DD) when I'd change him, I would occasionally use DD's diapers, just because they were within reach at my changing table. She never cared.

  • I would change anothers baby, and have. I don't think it really matters...its just a dirty butt, lol. And as far as whose things to use...probably use the babies personal items, diapers can be different than what I use and so can the creams, so stick with what the babies skin is used to, unless of course I have nothing of theirs then I would use mine.

  • Well I wouldnt let the baby sit in a poopy diaper all day. My ex's grama was watching a kid one day and we came back to his place (they lived together) and the kid stunk of poop!! He had a big mess she changed his diaper but not his clothes!!! I was like WTF she had a washer and dryer it wouldnt hurt to let him run around in his diaper or hell give him a pair of my ex boxers and roll em up pin them up but not her lazy B**** poor kid rank all day till his mom came to pick him up with clean clothes. So yes I would changed the kid if I had to use my own supplies so be it if I had to give em so of my kids clothes so be it.

  • That's a no brainer. Change the baby and use whatever supplies are available no matter who's they are.

  • Of course, change her! Don't make her sit in a dirty diaper. Was someone offended by this?

  • And I'd use hers if she had some in case of skin sensitivities, etc.

  • I would change the diaper if it needed to be done...................................but I don't feel comfortable with other people changing my son, especially if I am right there and able to do it. maybe that is weird but its just how i feel.
