City Hall Now Has Baby Changing Tables In The Men's Bathroom

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Baltimore fathers now have a place to change their baby's diapers in public.

Councilman Isaac "Yitzy" Schleifer said he noticed there was no place for him to change his kids at City Hall.

Schleifer is the sponsor of the "Diaper Duty" bill to place changing tables in all city buildings accessible to both mothers and fathers.

But ahead of the vote, the tables were installed at City Hall Friday.

Earlier this week a viral photo showed a dad trying to change his baby in a restroom without a table. That photo brought attention to the issue nationwide.

Schleifer, however, said he started pushing for the change before the viral photo was posted.
