I worked in the babysitting room at an athletic facility, and per company policy, caregivers were not allowed to change a diaper with a BM...we had to go get the parent and then they had to leave their workout to come change Junior...how many times i heard, "oh just let him stay in it til i'm done"...really??? you expect us to deal with that stench while you work out and wont be back for an hour?  Not to mention, no other kids will play near him cuz he stinks, and h'es stinking up the entire room...i'm sorry i had to drag you out of your workout, but there is more to think about here than just your waistline..............  I think its rotten a mother thinks more of her workout, than to come change her toddler who is sitting in his own poop.   

EDIT: It is written in the gym policy that the PARENT has to come change diapers. They KNEW  what they were signing, and KNEW they had to change their own kids, as it was reitterated when they visited the room.

i think u guys should be allowed to change them, the point of the babysitting room is to get an UNINTURUPTED workout!  but since u cant change them, yes they should come change them, but the policy sucks

If I not mistaken ( I could be ) poopy diapers involves more bodily waste that spreads bacteria easily even with hand washing. It's actually common place in ones that aren't huge chains.

ETA: you have to have a special place and permit for daycare workers to change a dirty diaper.

My gym will not allow that. If the child needs a change of any kind you must stop immediately and handle it. You are the parent. That is a job you chose. It is all in the contract we all have to sign to use the play room.
