Mother Posts Warning About Prank Restroom Changing Mat

November 6, 2017 Updated: March 14, 2019

Someone apparently pulled a bizarre prank on a U.K. mother and her baby in a public restroom.

When Hayley Turner put her baby down on the restroom’s changing table, the boy started screaming.

“I dismissed it as him being tired, cold and grumpy so I changed him as quickly as possible so I could give him a cuddle and calm him down.” Hayley wrote on Facebook, according to the BBC.

When she picked him up, she saw that someone placed pushpins (or drawing pins or thumbtacks) into the bottom of the mat.

“It turns out some lowlife scum thought it would be ‘fun’ to deliberately put drawing pins in the bottom of the changing mat,” wrote Hayley.

The thumbtacks punctured her child’s skin, giving him red marks on his back.

"Some low life scum thought it would be 'fun' to deliberately mess with the change table. I put my little boy down and he just started screaming."

She then cautioned: “Because he isn’t old enough to tell me it hurt, he now looks like a pin cushion with 5 holes in total! Angry doesn’t even cover it. It’s quite sad to think this has to be done but my word of warning is to CHECK YOUR CHANGING MATS!!”

Her warning has been shared more than 100,000 times.

“I don’t normally post things like this but I’m guessing if it happened to me it could happen to someone else, so I thought I’d spread a little word of warning to prevent it happening in the future….”

“Today I changed Samuels’ nappy on a public changing mat, somewhere I trust to be a safe place. When I led him down he screamed. I dismissed it as him being tired, cold and grumpy so I changed him as quickly as possible so I could give him a cuddle and calm him down. It turns out some lowlife scum thought it would be ‘fun’ to deliberately put drawing pins in the bottom of the changing mat. Our poor baby boy was led on pins!!! And because he isn’t old enough to tell me it hurt, he now looks like a pin cushion with 5 holes in total! Angry doesn’t even cover it. It’s quite sad to think this has to be done but my word of warning is to CHECK YOUR CHANGING MATS!!”

World’s Smallest Baby Goes Home

A baby who weighed just 9.45 ounces at birth has finally gone home, making him the smallest surviving baby boy in the world.

The baby, who hasn’t been named in reports, was delivered through Caesarean-section last August after he failed to gain weight during the pregnancy and doctors feared his life was in danger after his 24-week scan.

According to Keio University hospital, he was in intensive care until he reached 7 pounds,  and he was sent home on Feb. 20.

“I am grateful that he has grown this big because, honestly, I wasn’t sure he could survive,” the boy’s mother told Reuters.

The Japanese baby beat the previous record holder by just 0.21 ounces, according to the Tiniest Babies registry on the University of Iowa website.

That baby, born in Germany in 2009 weighing 9.66 ounces had held the record for 9 years.
