Mens bathrooms should have changing tables, stresses John Legend

John Legend is raising awareness about the struggles dads face when changing their children’s nappies in public bathrooms. The dad said it is extremely difficult for dads to carry out their duties when they don’t have the same facilities available to them as mums.

He told People that he believes there should be baby changing facilities in all male bathrooms.

The All Of Me singer teamed up with Pampers to help install a whopping 5,000 changing tables in male restrooms across America and Canada.

John explained why this move was so important for him: “We really started getting behind the idea of dads having diaper duty and that being a part of co-parenting Then Pampers and Koala Kare came together to say, ‘You know what? We’re encouraging dads to change diapers and be active parts of the parenting duties, but a lot of times, the facilities aren’t built for that to happen.’”

“It didn’t occur to me that [including dads in advertising around diapers] hadn’t happened yet … but I’m glad that we’re highlighting this issue. Overall, it’s part of a movement that we recognize [the] duties of parenting and running the house should be shared more equally between partners,” the dad-of-two stressed.

John said his goal is to make sure he spreads this vital message.

“I think making the changing stations available is gonna make a difference for a lot of people,” the Oscar winner added.

We couldn’t agree with John more. Introducing changing tables in male bathrooms is a step in the right direction. Let’s hope it happens on our side of the pond very soon.
