The frustration about not being able to change my sons diaper when going out is what inspired the collection of our original “baby friendly” restaurant list which then turned into this website. The team at Baby Friendly America are proud that President Obama has taken a stand to make families lives a little easier by signing the bipartisan BABIES ACT on October 7 to make at least federal buildings more family-friendly by expanding access to baby-changing stations.
Introduced by U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), federal buildings from post offices to court houses and everything in between will now be more accommodating for both moms and dads when a diaper needs to be changed. This is a great common sense law to make the lives of parents easier when going out with their families and a great first step in recognizing that Dad’s have an equal and important role in childcare.
