Last week, Jaime organised a gathering for some new mummies at Globetrotters family restaurant, United Square. I think about 16 mummies showed up with 16 babies. I did not join them since it’s a all mummies affair, just left Talia & Jaime at the enterance of the restaurant and I decided to go for a quick lunch.
On my way down, I was distracted by the new “Children” area and decided to take a quick look. There were many new shops targetting Parents. Nothing new except that I noticed the sling baby carrier by Moms in Mind was sold in one of the shop. We visited Moms in Mind’s shop at Jalan Pemimpin a few times, but it’s always closed and we keep forgetting which day it closes.
The other shop that I took noticed was Growing up Gifted, a pre-school center + kindergarden. I heard some good comments about them before and decided to pick up some brochures. Frankly, I was not too impressed by what I read. It’s just some common sense parent-child interactions which I’ve already plan to do with Talia.
On my way to the little boy’s room, I saw a sign that read Baby’s Room. I pressed the entrance button and a Malay aunty cleaner stopped me. She said “Mothers ONLY!” I pointed at the sign and said “Baby’s Room. Your husbdand never change your baby’s diaper?”. Her facial expression seem to say “yes”, but she got my point.
I told her I’m checking it out as I’ll need to change my baby’s diaper, make milk and feed my baby here some day.
Ok, back to the Baby’s Room in United Square. I’m impressed by how spacious the room is. The are 3 diaper changing counters, a sink, a Hot/Cold water dispenser, padded benches and 3 nursing rooms. Unlike the yucky nursing room in Suntec City, they have rubbish bin to dispose dirty diapers.
The lighting is nice and warm. The ventilation was good.
I like the little privacy design for the diaper counter, but the excessive wall mirror was an overkill. When a crying baby see another crying baby in the mirror, what will he/she do? Cry louder.
I know the ID intention was to make the room look larger, but the room is already large enough to start with.
Overall, I’m please with this baby’s room. It’s one that left an impression and will encourage my family to shop & dine in United Square more often. Three stars for the Management of the Mall.
