The map project had a serious growth spurt over the weekend and now boasts over 35 locations listed where there is a dad accessible diaper changing station. That means that now the map up and public on its own page with a link dads can share, but we’re not done yet! The next goal is 100 locations in CT where a dad can use a diaper changing station. If we can hit that goal then I will make the map searchable on Google so it can reach even more dads. I want this to be as useful a resource as possible to so it is important that all locations are verified either by the person submitting them or a reliable source. You can check out the map project page for more details on how you can contribute along with a preview of the map and a link that will show you the map details. This map is going to be especially useful to stay at home dads on the go in CT so I want to send out a special thanks goes out to everyone who has contributed locations and brought the map to this point!
Here are a few things I have noticed along the way:
- Almost all the locations listed are either chain stores or malls. The only places with purely local ties are libraries.
- There are few locations listed outside of the center third of the state.
- There are very few restaurants listed
I’m not exactly sure what these observations mean but I do know that these are areas that need to be addressed. So if you live in the eastern or western portions of the state, or if you are out and about at a local restaurant or business I encourage you to get involved and help out your fellow Connecticut dads. Please check to see if there is a changing station in men’s restrooms as you use them and leave a comment on the map project page so that I can add it to the map.
