Baby & Infant change tables in all public toilets

This petition had 23 supporters


Becoming a new mum in New Zealand has opened my eyes to parental issues. A key issue is how to change a nappy when out doing simple things like; grocery shopping, eating out at cafes, going for walks around parks and simply enjoying being a parent outside of the home. 

It's a simple solution:  make it a requirement that all public toilets and child friendly establishments have a change table in the toilet area. Why have a high chair at a cafe but make parents change their babies nappies in their cars or on the disabled toilet floor!! It's not hygenic, it's not safe, and it makes parenting in this day and age difficult when it shouldn't be. The amount of babies and families in our communities that would benefit from this is worth the fight. 

We don't mind taking our nappies home with us! Just a safe space to change our babies is what we need. 

Come on parents and caregivers. Let's make this better for our children!!
