SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Born out of an idea to help keep her kids germ-free, a mother and neurologist has come up with a cleaner way to change diapers when out in public.
Dr. Jennifer Pary shows us her unique idea. It's called the 'Booty Roo' and it's basically a diaper changing station all in one bag.
"It's kind of like a pillow case that would slip over the table and it contains the germs inside once it was taken off," says Dr. Pary.
As a neurologist and mother of two, Dr. Pary is always on the go. That's how she came up with the sanitary solution to changing dirty diapers in not-so-clean public places.
"When I had to change them in public, I was just absolutely disgusted by those changing tables and how dirty they were and I couldn't imagine laying my child on it," says Pary.
The foldable, washable pouch is a barrier between your kids and the germ-covered changing tables.
"Once I had my children I became concerned about the germs everywhere because once they would get sick I would get sick and my husband would get sick," says Dr. Pary. "You just don't want your kids to get sick and you do what you can to protect your children."
And to protect other Siouxland babies Dr. Pary is teaming up with Mercy's Family Birth Center. They are giving 200 'Booty Roos' to the hospital's newborns.
"I think it's a wonderful partnership and I'm pleased they will be able to use it and protect their babies," says Dr. Pary.
Dr. Pary will be selling the 'Booty Roos' at Mercy's Women's Night Out event on October 11th. They are also for sale at the Dunes Family Pharmacy in Dakota Dunes, South Dakota.
