One father has started a global campaign to have baby changing facilities installed in all male toilets, rather than just in the women’s loos.
Donte Palmer started the campaign on social media earlier this year using the hashtag #SquatForChange, Pretty 52 reported. It’s since gained momentum, with more fathers getting involved.
The post that kicked it all off was one of Donte squating on the floor of a bathroom to create a changing table with his legs for his son.
He started his Instagram post by stating: “This is a serious post!!!” And continued: “What’s the deal with not having changing tables in men’s bathroom as if we don’t exist.”
Now other fathers from around the US have been sharing their stories and Donte has even been posting about the other dad’s he’s met and taught the squat technique to.
But it’s not only the dads who have been listening – a growing number of establishments have been installing changing tables in men’s bathrooms and sharing them on social media with the hashtag #SquatForChange.
