  • ‘Childcare is not just a woman’s responsibility,’ the photo was captioned
  • Bengaluru Airport said all of its toilets are equipped with a diaper changing station

Traveling with a baby can be difficult as public areas are not properly equipped. Nursing rooms and changing rooms are set up in several places, but they are mostly adjacent to women’s bathrooms, as only mothers are supposed to change the baby’s diaper. And if you’re a dad traveling alone with a child, you know the struggle is real.

A passenger recently spotted a changing room in the men’s restroom at Bengaluru airport.

Twitter user Sukhada posted a photo of a changing room in the men’s restroom at Kempegowda International Airport.
