A Dad and Reddit user shared an image of a bathroom cubicle in Japan and we sure are impressed!
"A place to hang your kid while you poo and then wash your sprocket", he captioned it.
Sometimes you just wanna have your poops in peace, you know?
With this little contraption, children can now rest easily while you do your thing, and you don't have to worry about what to do with them or how to hold them while you're busy.
Some bathrooms don't even have place for you to put your cellphone or hang your handbag, but this one is just on another level.
Some Reddit users responded, and I'm sure we're all feeling this way about at least one of the responses:
"I spend the whole time telling my kids not to touch anything"
Some feel that this is a viral video just waiting to happen. Fair enough, it has the potential to be a bit of a risk too.
Curios potty peepers
Apparently toilet cubicles are a great place for kids to play peek-a-boo too, who would've thought? The baby holders will certainly keep their curiosity at bay and prevent random strangers from getting a nasty little shock while doing their business.
These parents are concerned with the fact that their children might leave the cubicle and wander off while they're still very much busy in the cubicle. As you can imagine, this becomes a safety issue too so the baby holder will keep kids safe.
For the laughs
So while Japan might have reached "peak bathroom", there are still a bit more concerns. The good seems to outweigh the bad though. But I think it's great that they're being more inventive and actually catering for parents in ways that other public restrooms might not be. What makes this even better is that it's found in a Dad's toilet cubicle, and as you may have come to realise, there aren't many public toilets that cater for dads and children. Good on you, Japan (and any other restroom that may be doing this).
