It has been a while since I blog about my review on baby room. The last post I wrote which can be found on my old blog was on 4th June 2010. If you are interested, you can read them at: http://imafulltimemummy.blogspot.com/search/label/baby%20room
So anyway, since I'm back to breastfeeding Alyson (oh well, not that I ever STOP breastfeeding since 4th March 2009 - oh my., come to think of it.. I HAVE NOT STOP BREASTFEEDING SINCE MARCH 2009!!!), I thought I'll resume back blogging about baby rooms that we used - oh well, just the new ones that we've never use during Ben's time. I didn't blog about baby rooms so long because it's always the same places we have been to since then and I would prefer to just blog about the new baby rooms we tried.
I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy sneaking in my camera along with my baby and sheepishly taking pictures during the nursing session hehehehe...
When: 30th October 2011
Why: Family outing, also to lunch with my BFF and catch up on MY latest gossips with her (she is my gossip outlet muahahaha...)
Location: 3rd floor
~The baby room is easy to locate, love the cute signage outside the room.
~ There are 2 partitions available for nursing, each one comes with a comfortable sofa and its own full length curtain. I chose the one next to the wall deco so I could have something to look at while nursing.
~ There is a 2 seater sofa outside which I think is for the spouse or others to sit while waiting. There's a small coffee table too.
~ Two diaper changing station with a very deep water sink right in the middle. The changing mat is really comfy and plush.
~ I like the separate curtain partitioning and even after I close off the curtain, there are still a lot of space left, enough to put a stroller in your nursing area as well.
~ I also like that the curtain length is long enough though I'd prefer it to be about 3-5 inches off the ground, as even though the curtains are close, it might be safer IMO if I can see from outside that there's someone inside just by looking on the floor for tell tale of shoes, stroller or something.
What I don't like:
~ The baby room is quite cool (or maybe cos I sat right under the vent)
~ The music played in the baby room is not too loud, just nice, however, the same cannot be said for the sound from OUTSIDE of the baby room. Some shops outside played their music really loud which is annoying!
~ From my nursing section, I realised when I looked up why my nursing section is darker than the other one... turns out the light bulb is burnt.
~ And I'm not sure what went on the mind of the mall's management as there are NO dustbin provided in the baby room. And NO liquid dispenser or paper towel provided for you to wash your hands after changing the diaper.
Summary: The management really need to look into providing AT LEAST a dustbin in the baby room. Other than that, it is a nice and comfortable baby room that I would definitely go again the next time we visit Viva Mall.
