Apparently You Should Be Asking Your Baby For Consent To Change Their Nappy

I use the term ‘expert’ loosely.

Expert Deanne Carson claims that all parents should be asking their baby if it’s okay for them to change their nappy.

Yeah, I’m just as confused as you.

In a Youtube video posted by Superjay, Deanne Carson states that ‘Of course the baby is not going to respond “yes mum that’s awesome, I’d love to have my nappy changed”‘. So like me, you might be thinking, well what’s the bloody point in asking?

For Carson, the whole thing about babies not being able to you know, speak, is besides the point, as she states ‘if you leave a space, and wait for body language and wait to make eye contact, then you’re letting that child know that their response matters’.

You can watch the full interview here:

Don’t get me wrong, consent is an extremely important thing, and in any other case not really something that’s debatable, but if you ask me, Carson is entirely off the mark with this. Babies can’t speak, nor can they change their own nappies, so it seems a bit silly to expect parents to stand there and ask for consent.

I feel like we should be channeling this energy into educating adolescents and grown men about consent, because apparently it’s really confusing for some of them.

For something that seems to be more of a pressing issue in the world of consent, did you know that in Georgia, it’s technically not illegal to film up a woman’s skirt?
