More changing tables coming to men’s restrooms after Pres. Obama signs “Babies Act”

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WCMH) — It will soon be a lot easier for dads to change those diapers in federal buildings.

According to CNN, President Obama signed the “Bathrooms Accessible in Every Situation Act,” or better known as the “Babies Act.”

The bill requires both men’s and women’s restrooms in federal buildings be equipped with baby changing tables.

The law had bi-partisan support and some star power behind it after actor Ashton Kutcher lobbied for that type of legislation.

Democratic Representative David Cicilline from Rhode Island introduced the bill, and he say it will start going into effect at social security offices, post office buildings and federal courthouses among other places. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
