School Survey

Hey ladies, I'm doing a survey for my business communications class and need help from other moms! What I want to know is:

•Do you use the Koala Bear Kare changing stations in public restrooms?
•Are you more likely to revisit a restaurant you know is equipt with a changing station than one without?

Thanks Ladies!

  • I have used them in the past, but only on a rare occassion... I am more likely to go somewhere that has them, though, just in case one of our children needs it (ours are all in pull-ups and diapers. lol).

  • My children are older - there were very few changing tables in public restrooms when they were younger. I got very good at changing on the floor, in a stroller, etc. And no, at this stage in my life, changing tables in public restrooms make no bearing on where I eat.

  • No to both questions.

  • We use them! If we know there is a changing station YES we are more likely to visit again.

  • I do use them, but I always put down a blanket first. They are supposed to have disposable paper liners to lay down on them - there is a little box where they are supposed to go, but restaurants rarely stock them (I managed an Applebees for a while and always made sure we stocked them and they stayed full!)
    My choice of restaurant is not affected by whether or not they have one. One of our favorite restaurants (Fat Daddys) does not have one, but it doesn't keep us from going. I have told them that I would like for them to install one though.

  • i think every resteraunt should be equipt and yes i would revisit

    Answer by ladyjwitt at 9:04 AM on Apr. 15, 2011

  • I have used them maybe 3 times with my children. I try not to due to germs and sanitation reasons. As for going back to a restaurant because they have a diaper changing table, I cannot say I conciously have but I probably would be irritated if I needed one and one was not available at the establishment.
