I was going to post this as a Wordless Wednesday, but recalled that some of my readers don’t do the parent thing, so I thought some explanation might be helpful.
This is the sign outside the baby room (notice the edge of the entrance to the Egyptian Tomb/Men’s Room). This one is located on B1 of Great World City. As a mom, I like that the “baby” rooms are totally separate from the bathroom (especially ones like this that include a nursing area), with the exception that it then makes going to the bathroom with a toddler and a stroller on my own problematic unless I use the accessible bathroom.
One other thing–don’t you just love how the name “Baby Splendor” is trademarked?
This is what you see when you walk in the door. There’s an entry way with the flowers and chandelier, and not pictured a giant mirror, a sink and (will be pictured later) a hot water dispenser. Don’t worry, I’m not invading a stranger’s privacy. That’s my stroller and part of my helper, B.
This is the diaper changing area. There are two vinyl covered cushioned mats, each with a mobile hanging above it (which is great, I’m sure with the little babies, but I live in terror of the day my toddler rips it down). You can see the fairy motif as well. There’s a covered bin in the corner edge for dirty diapers.
This is one of two nursing rooms. As you can see, there’s a hook for your bags, a table (especially thoughtful for pumping moms) a comfy chair and a door/partition you can close to get privacy. The artwork in both rooms is also lovely b/w infant photography. If we’re still living in this area when we decide to bring on #2, I can see this room being a refuge when out and about. Much as I have no issue with (and believe I have every right to) breastfeed in public, a room like this makes it far more desirable to be here then out there (at least in most situations).
Finally, a hot water tap, which for formula feeding moms is a huge deal in this land of tepid water (at least ones who do the whole “warm/hot formula”thing…we were lazy and always gave E room temp formula when she switched…it made our lives SO MUCH easier).
