Mother kicked out of Texas restaurant after diaper change at table

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Aug 11, 2014

If you were dining at a pizza shop and the woman next to you changed her newborn's diaper on an adjoining chair, would you lose your appetite? Would the smell make you sick?

Miranda Sowers and her children were recently asked to leave Brother's Pizza Express in Spring, Texas, after she changed her baby's diaper at her table. Sowers claims that she had gone to the bathroom first, and discovered it did not have a changing table.

"I thought 'You know what? I've got my own changing pad, she's tiny, she fits right here on the chair,'" Sowers explained to local outlet, KHOU. "So I laid her down quickly and quietly changed her diaper." Sowers was at the table with her baby and her two other children-- ages 4 and 8.

The restaurant manager, Donny Lala, claims that customers complained. His sister, Bessa Lala, even recalls that one regular customer of the family-run business actually texted her about the diaper change.

"Sowers argued that no one saw her change the diaper," reports KHOU. "Her family's food was brought out in 'to go' containers and they were asked to leave."

Sowers has since filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.
