And right now in 2021, parenting is more progressive than ever.

Thanks to feminism and gender equality...

Both mothers and fathers are taking on the same roles when it comes to raising their children.

Of course, being a stay-at-home mom is amazing...

And as long as a child is happy and healthy, a parents' methods of raising them is nobody's business. But now, moms are encouraged to get back to work and hand over a lot of responsibility to the fathers.

There are now so many stay-at-home dads out there...

And did you know that here in the U.S, there are approximately 2 million single dads raising their children alone?

Dads are just as important as moms...

And they take on the same amount of responsibility as their other halves... well, aside from actually giving birth, of course!

In New York City, it is now illegal for men's public restrooms to not have baby changing facilities.

This came about after numerous dads in New York began demonstrating how difficult it is to change their babies when out in public. For instance, Donte Palmer demonstrated his "baby squat" that involved laying his son across his legs to change a diaper no matter where he was.

Donte's post triggered a viral outrage among dads experiencing the same problem...

Which is what lead to Governor Andrew Cuomo passing the law that will require all new buildings constructed in the city to have "safe and compliant" changing tables in restrooms and existing buildings to renovate their public restrooms to outfit them with changing tables for babies and toddlers.

Generally, at least 1 public restroom per building must have a changing table that is easily accessible regardless of gender.

"There must be at least one changing table accessible to both genders per publicly-accessible floor. Building owners or managers must post clear signs directing the public to the location of the nearest available changing table," the Mayor's office notes.

People in New York have already noticed signs going up in buildings and businesses informing people that changing stations are inside the rooms...

Which is simply amazing to see, considering how much of an influential city that New York is. Let's hope other states will soon follow suit! For more heartwarming stories, read on to learn about the blind dad-to-be who was able to feel his baby sonogram...
