Hey Dads! Good news/bad news! New York City just became the first major US city to pass legislation requiring all new construction and existing construction that undergoes renovations to install diaper changing tables in all public bathrooms. That includes – FINALLY – changing tables in men’s rooms.
Yup. Moms and dads change diapers. BECAUSE IT IS 2019, people.
That’s the good news.
The bad news is that dads have NO reason to refuse diaper duty during dinner. (Not that we’d EVER think you’d use the “but there’s no changing table in the men’s room!” excuse.)
The bill was sponsored by New York City Council member Rafael Espinal. And he doesn’t even have kids. He just saw a father struggling to change his baby’s diaper while balancing the baby on a sink.
Anyway, let’s hope this trend sweeps the nation!
