A mom-of-seven has people all over the country laughing with her hilarious rant about parents who take too long to change their babies’ diapers in public spaces.
Tara Wood, from Georgia, filmed what she called a ‘car confessional’ in a Target’s parking lot after experiencing the smell of a baby’s diaper, and vented about moms who waste time asking their babies ‘if they have a poopie’, instead of running to the nearest restroom to change them as soon as possible.
The freelance writer, 44, posted the hilarious video to her Facebook page, where it has gathered nearly 70,000 views, while also offering a platform for others to complain about having to smell babies’ dirty diapers in public places.
Funny mom: Tara Wood, a mother-of-seven from Georgia, went on a rant about parents who don’t change their babies’ dirty diapers when at public places
Over it: The writer vented about moms who waste time asking their babies ‘if they have a poopie,’ instead of running to the nearest restroom to change them
‘If you are in public with your baby who has obviously had catastrophic diarrhea and has this horrific odor around him that has, like, weight and mass and there’s green fog circulating around him and he smells like he just s*** out a dead man, everyone else can smell that too,’ said an animated Tara after leaving the Target.
‘So when you say, “Oh, Jameson are you pooping?” Um, yeah. Jameson is not going to answer you. But I will.’
Tara then said she decided to take matters into her own hands and inform the stranger that her baby indeed needed a diaper change.
‘And that’s why after the third time this lady today at Target asked Jameson, who was maybe four months old, if he had a poopie, I said, “I’d like to confirm that Jameson does have a poop and there’s a family restroom at the front of Target and you should probably take him there to change him.'”
She concluded the hilarious rant with some advice for fellow moms.
‘Nobody wants to hang out and shop the clearance section with you when you’ve got a baby that smells like it just s*** out 15 hard-boiled eggs,’ Tara said.
‘If you smell your baby’s poop, other people smell your baby’s poop. Do your baby a favor, do your co-shoppers a favor and go change that poop!’

Preach: Tara said that if you’re at a public space and ‘there’s green fog circulating around’ your baby, it means you need to change their diaper
When asked by DailyMail.com if she really approached the mom about her baby’s dirty diaper, Tara said she indeed had.
‘I was pretty polite but yes, I let her know there was a family restroom at the front of the store where she could change her baby’s diaper,’ she said. ‘I’m sure she already knew but I was trying to nudge her a bit because it was super odoriferous.’
She added that the baby’s mom ‘sort of half-smiled and said “Um, thanks.”‘
Tara’s followers used the video’s comment section to weigh in on the matter and offer their own stories of been subjected to the smell of a dirty diaper.
Someone commented: ‘I like when they hoist them up and make a show of smelling it like they need confirmation that the angel of death is emanating from their precious tookums. TRUST ME, IT IS.’
‘I work in a retail kids store, there is nothing worse than a mom who keeps shopping when her kid is sitting in shit. We all smell it!!! Yes it’s your kid,’ shared someone else.
