Calling all parents staying in Yishun! Did you know that the upgraded Nee Soon East Community Club has many family-friendly features? It boosts a cozy breastfeeding room, with diaper changing table and even toys to keep baby’s siblings occupied while you nurse your baby.
The public-accessible nursing room also features:
- Hot water dispenser
- Diaper changing table
- Child seat to hold the child safely while the mother adjusts her clothing if necessary
- Mirror to let the mother check her appearance before leaving the nursing room
- Toys to keep the mother’s older children occupied, if she has to bring in her baby’s siblings into the room with her
- Project Liquid Gold Working Mum’s Milk Kit, containing a desk and door sign designed for working mothers who need to pump at work.
There are other diaper changing stations located in the CC and kid-friendly sinks in the restrooms as well.
The Community Club was opened officially on 1 August 2015, on the same day as the start of the World Breastfeeding Week. Mothers of Project Liquid Gold worked closely with Nee Soon East Community Club to give their inputs on the design of the room.
TNAP is thrilled that the newly furbished CC has breastfeeding mums in mind and hope that other public buildings can follow suit. The inclusion of a nursing room in a public building is an encouraging step to support a breastfeeding-friendly culture in Singapore.
