A dad’s photo of himself trying to change his son’s nappy in a public bathroom has sparked outrage online.

Donte Palmer shared a photo of he and his son in a bathroom stall while Donte was trying to change his son’s nappy – without a changing table.

The image showed the dad-of-three crouched in a squat position with his son lying across his knees so he didn’t have to touch the ground.

Donte wrote:

“This is a serious post!!! What’s the deal with not having changing tables in men’s bathroom as if we don’t exist!!

“#FLM#fatherslivesmatter clearly we do this often because look how comfortable my son is. It’s routine to him!!!! Let’s fix this problem!”

Donte’s post sparked serious outrage online as other dads rallied alongside him saying that they had often been in similar situations.

Sometimes, many found that they couldn’t change their child’s nappy at all.

“This sucks you should have changing tables in every restroom men care for their children all the time!!!! I hope your legs did not kill after that squat!!!!” said one person.

“Thank you being a stand-up father. My husband complains of the same issue anytime we go out. It’s 2018, would be nice if places acknowledged it,” said another.

“Amen bro! I say the same thing to my wife,” agreed another.
