Fatherís Viral Photo Inspires Pampers And John Legend To Put 5,000 Changing Stations In Menís Restrooms

If youíve ever been in a gender-neutral or family public restroom, you may have noticed a giant fold-down plastic baby changer (sometimes with a koala on it). Theyíre a common sight in womenís restrooms as well, but not so much for menís rooms. This lack of changing stations for men compared to women reflects out-dated gender norms and expectations in the United States, but Pampers, John Legend, and an ordinary dad are teaming up to correct the imbalance.

Donte Palmer is an ordinary father of three sons.

One day, Palmer became so frustrated by the lack of changing stations for fathers he posted a photo to Instagram showing the lengths he had to go through to change his sonís diaper in a public bathroom.

His photo went viral and other men followed suit, soon the hashtag #SquatForAChange was born.

ďIím excited, Iím honored, Iím using the moment to teach my boys that if you have a dream, if you have an issue with something, open your mouth, chase it, go attack that thing you want and itíll come,Ē Palmer told Metro UK in an interview.

The diaper company Pampers noticed and this Fatherís Day they decided to chip-in and donate funds so that 5,000 changing stations could be built in menís rooms across the company. To help spread the message they enlisted the help of celebrity dad John Legend.

The video features dads describing the moves they use to change their kids without proper facilities. ďI call this the piano solo,Ē Legend says while changing his infant Miles on his piano.

ďI am so excited to play a role in Pampersí Love the Change campaign. I love being a hands-on dad, and it is so important that we acknowledge the active role dads are playing in their babiesí lives,Ē John Legend said in a press release. ďSpending time out and about with my kids is one of the greatest joys in my life, but itís frustrating when I am out with [my son] and the menís restroom doesnít have a baby changing table.Ē

Way to go guys! One step closer to a world where dads arenít forced to squat on grimy floors to change their kidsí dirty diapers.
