The first years of your child’s life you spend changing diapers. Multiply that by more children and you have a lot of children in diapers. As we bring our babies into the world, we realize that sometimes the world does not give us much help. Diaper changing stations are very rare. They are hard to find in places of business and are rarely in restrooms.
My husband loves to take our son on errands and frequently gets annoyed at having no place to change him because there are never diaper changing stations in restrooms (especially men’s restrooms).
Diaper changing stations in restrooms has been a hot topic this spring since actor and director, Ashton Kutcher brought it up in March when he posted on his Facebook page about the problem. He ended up teaming up with Change.org to help fathers across the country have the same rights as women when it came to taking care of their children.
My son, who was just turning three at this time, was still in diapers and my husband was still wrestling with this issue of finding places to change him, especially since we were in the trenches of mixed potty training and diapers. Then, we found a special place in our community that showed us that we are not alone and that they truly do care.
