NEW YORK — Baby hooded rugs may soon be coming to a big, public location.
The American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASC) is considering a proposal to allow students to bring their own baby hooded clothes and accessories into their dorm rooms and bathrooms to prevent them from having to clean the towels and other baby essentials.
At least a few of the proposals are expected to be approved by the association’s board.
But if the new rules are approved, it’s unlikely that most students will have to do any extra laundry or use a laundromat, the Associated Press reports.
Instead, they could bring their baby-size, “barking” rugs and other items to a designated “Baby Hooded Washing Station,” the AP says.
Baby-size rugs would also be permitted to be used as a baby-proofing item, the AP reports.
“It’s important to make sure that babies don’t get lost in the world and need to be able to be cared for by someone,” Barbara H. Oates, the president of the AASC, told the AP.
“The hooded wigs and baby clothes are an ideal solution.”
