Texas mom kicked out of restaurant for changing diaper

SPRING, TX - You might call Miranda Sowers a diaper changing expert. Her 4-month old Reagan is baby number three.

But Miranda had quite the challenge when she was alone with her three girls at a Texas pizza joint and took Reagan to the bathroom.

"I looked around saw there was absolutely nowhere to lay a baby other than the floor so walked back out and thought 'I have to figure something else out,'" said Miranda.

With no changing table and to avoid the hassle of taking everyone back to the minivan, Miranda said what she did next was her last resort.

"So I thought you know what I've got my own changing pad she's tiny she fits right here on the chair so I laid her down quickly quietly changed her diaper."

But it wasn't quickly and quietly, according to the employees who say the restaurant was full.

"I don't want to lose all these other customers because they see a dirty diaper," said Bessa Lala with Brother's Pizza Express.

Lala and her brother Donny run the family business and said people were complaining-- one regular customer sitting close by even sent a text about what was going on.

"As soon as you start opening the diaper people start complaining about the smell of the diaper last thing I want is a customer throwing up," said Donny.

Miranda argues no one saw her change the diaper, but she and her girls were given their food in "to go" containers and asked to leave.

"I had to carry it out like this with a big giant diaper bag and a baby in a car seat."

Miranda has filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and the restaurant stands behind its reaction knowing its lost at least one family as customers.
