I think it should be a law!!! EDIT

So this is just a vent, but I am really thinking about protesting against restaurants and stores that do not have baby changing stations in the bathroom!! This is ridiculous where am I supposed to change my baby?

DH and I tried to go to a nice restaraunt for dinner the other night and before we ordered I went to change Hunter, this bathroom was HUGE, but no baby changing station so I asked the server where I could change my son and she said "try your car" I was so pissed off it was pouring rain outside! I just looked at DH and said we are leaving!!

I don't get why they can't just put one in every handicap stall or on the wall outside the stalls....I just think everywhere should have one!!!!!

Next time I am gonna change him right there on the table LOL

Ok just for clarification....this was a family restaraunt!

I didn't think about changing him on the counter, I was frustrated!

I asked to change him on their bench that was no where near other customers and they said no...so I tried that option before deciding to leave!

No I can not change him in my car my seats are tilted and he would just roll off, its not safe with his head being so floppy.

The title is not serious, I know they will never make it a law, this is just a vent, so people please don't be so rude, its not like you have never vented!!

I hate that also, but that's one reason why it's good to have a nice and decent size changing pad with you....

LOL, I remember those days, and I also hate when they don't have a changing station in the Men's room. It makes it easier for dads to get away from diaper duty, lol.

2 thumbs up for changing him on the table. This pisses me off too. I forgot where I was the other day, but an employee asked how the service was. I told him it sucked ass because I had no where to change my son even though they had a huge bathroom with tons of room and it was a family restaurant.

 I agree! It really drives me crazy when I have to change my babies and there is NO place to do it! It's called customer service and some places don't care!

I have a pad, but I am paranoid about changing him out in public with all the perverts out there lol, and not only that he is in the blow out poop diaper stage and I don't think people would like to see that while they are eating haha!!

Sorry, but the last thing we need is more laws making it impossible for small business to survive, let alone thrive. Change your kid in your car or something. It isn't that difficult to figure this one out....is it??
