When my baby was 3-months-old, we took a mini-vacation to the Vineyard. Toward the end of the trip, we hit a restaurant for lunch. Our little lady was sleeping soundly, but when she woke up, she needed a new diaper. Not the best time to discover the restaurant had no changing table in the restroom. 

Tons of moms and dads face this kind of dilemma on a daily basis, wondering if their next stop will provide a clean place to change baby. Parents will be happy to know that when touring Boston, there are plenty of changing stations at some of the city’s biggest tourist spots.
