Seems like a poor choice of name for baby changing facilities. "Diaper" isn't an English word; it's an American one (and FWIW the equivalent English word "Nappy" wouldn't be used for these facilities). --SomeoneElse (talk) 13:03, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

A Few Problems

I think there are a few problems with this tag:

  1. diaper=* tag did not go through the proposal process.
  2. Perhaps this should be tagged as "changing_table" to side step the diaper/nappy terms.
  3. Adult changing tables could be taken into consideration.
  4. The number of facilities provided is interwoven with the key. That could obfuscate the meaning of the tag for programming and cartography, which makes those activities slightly harder.
  5. This should this be somehow coordinated with the amenity=toilets tagging. Since I presume, most are in public toilets.
  6. How do you tag this if it is located in a public toilet within a place such as a restaurant or shop?
  7. What is the tagging if the baby changing table is only located in the female designated restroom?
