My son has his moments where he'll start wailing when you try to put him in the high chair. We went to Carabba's yesterday, he usually does just fine with sitting and eating his meal. We try to make it fun for him. He went #2 in his diaper, so I took him to the bathroom to change him. He got nervous on the changing table and started screaming bloody murder. When I came back to take him to the high chair, he refused to go in and wanted to get down and play. He just screamed and cried harder. I knew it was annoying other diners. I felt like I wanted to cry myself. I didn't want to end the meal, and I knew he wasn't going to magically stop crying anytime soon. We don't spank, so that wasn't an option.
What would you have done?

Walked outside with him until he settled down..That's what I always did..Nothing is more annoying that bad kids in a restaurant..That's why I go out to eat, to relax and have a meal served to me in peace!!

i have to agree with anon 8:32. i always took my little girl outside until she calmed down. we spank but not for something like that. it sounds like he was just scared when his diaper was changed and wanted you to give him attention. try bringing his favorite coloring book and a few crayons. my little girl loves that. she has a little "supper" kit that she grabs only for when we go out to supper. she stays quiet and happy. good luck mama i feel your pain.
