Before you even consider putting your baby down on these changing tables always make sure you wipe them down using an antibacterial wipe or spray. Even if you are in a rush or even if you put a blanket down.
These black marks are often caused by drug addicts burnt spoons when they use these tables to shoot up.

‘All it would take is flakes getting stuck to a blanket, and the baby later putting the blanket in their mouth. Especially with all the Fentanyl out there right now, it takes a tiny amount to kill a full grown adult, it would take even less to kill a tiny baby.’
The clean drug addict said that the burn marks that very often appear in public baby changing rooms and also in disabled toilets throughout the world.

Jessica later commented and insisted that she was not fabricating and that this is very much the case as she should know being a recovering drug addict and therefore in an excellent position to know precisely what can go on in these public baby changing facilities. She said she only created the post to highlight to parents what could be on the changers.
