Lack of Changing table

Posted Wed April 19, 2006 7:34 pm, by Jennie P. written to Denny's Restaurant

Write a Letter to this Company

I'd like to suggest that the Denny's in Fallbrook, CA look into installing a changing station in one or both of the restrooms.
Denny's promotes itself as a family-friendly restaurant. And for the most part it is. I enjoy being able to take my kids to an appropriate restaurant, but it is a bit of a hassle to take the baby out of the restaurant and half-way across the parking lot to the car to change her.
I respectfully request that the management consider purchasing a changing station.
Thank you,
{my name here}

I agree with the changing table thing but even more importantly I
agree with what one poster said about a family restroom. They were
actualy talking for a while about passing a law that stated all
buissness that had seprat male and female restrooms must allso have a
family restroom. I never really thought about the idea until I went to
the mall with my two year old nephew a few weeks ago and he had gone
shopping with his dad the day before so he wanted to use the mens
restroom. Right now he's not old enough to know the difference he just
knows that daddy uses one and mommy uses the other and he liked going
with daddy. But one day he will be old enough to know and not quiet
old enough to go by himself which is where the family bathroom comes
in and is wonderfull. I've seen the issue some people make about me
and my sister taking my nephew in the womens bathroom and it makes me
think......what if he was a girl going in the mens bathroom?

This is a great letter. You clearly state a reasonable request and you
do so nicely! Jennie you should teach a class to some of the poor
souls on here who attempt to write a letter.

Your suggestion is a great one too. Not being a mom I dont look for
changing stations but now that you mention it there are a lot of
resturant I can think of that are "kid friendly" that dont have
changing stations and thats just dumb! I hope Denny's takes your

Jennie, THANK YOU for going to the trouble of taking your baby to the
car to change her, rather than use the dining room seats or table.
Yes, people do that. It's disgusting.

I agree that both restrooms should have a changing table. What would
be even more family-friendly (says this person with no kids) would be
a third "family" restroom, where a parent could change a baby while a
toddler used the toilet supervised.

Why should YOU have to be the one to change the baby every time you go
to Denny's(or any place else)? My husband was pretty good about doing
his share of diaper duty, but there are a lot of people(male and
female) who will look for any excuse to get out of a sometimes
unpleasant chore.

It always bothered me to no end when the women's restroom would have
the cute sign on the door announcing the changing station, but no such
sign on the men's. Sometimes, when I was in a lippy mood, I'd ask a
manager where my husband was supposed to take the baby. Sometimes I'd
merely ask when the place would get a changing station in the men's

Men take kids out to restaurants, malls, and stores, without the
mothers. Men should be able to change the diapers without having to
walk halfway across the parking lot to the car. And in my part of the
country, there's no way I'd undress my baby in the freezing car.

Maybe you could speak to the manager next time you go and suggest this
in person.
