For those who have a bad experience with small, cramped, and dingy nursing rooms, the ones in [email protected] will surely blow you away.

This shopping mall’s nursing rooms are unexpectedly large, in particular the one on Level 5. They come with an adjoining toilet, a hot and cold water dispenser, private cubicles for nursing, and padded changing stations. However, do take note that the one on B3 does not have a power point, and instead has a microwave.

Claymore Connect is one of the most family-friendly shopping malls in Orchard with tenants such as Maple Bear Preschool, a children’s martial arts studio, and Trehaus (a co-working space).

Amenities here are quite simple, and include lockable nursing rooms with benches, diaper changing stations, sinks, and power points. However, mothers appreciate the cleanliness and spaciousness of this room, which has enough space for bigger strollers.

Far East Plaza

Far East Plaza may be one of the older shopping malls in Orchard, but you’ll be surprised to know that there are nursing rooms on every single floor, except Level 1.

Due to the small space, you can also expect fewer, basic amenities such as a collapsible changing station, sink, and hot and cold water dispenser. Another downside of the small space is that the changing station takes up so much space when in use, it is impossible to bring your stroller in with you.

ION Orchard

Widely-acknowledged as some of the best nursing rooms in Singapore, ION Orchard’s nursing rooms could probably be one of the mall’s main attraction points. There are nursing rooms located throughout the shopping mall, and the larger-than-average space can easily accommodate both your stroller and your shopping bags.

In addition to the usual amenities, each room has a disposable diaper dispenser and standing fan. The rooms on the lower levels tend to be more crowded due to higher traffic in the basement levels, so mothers recommend that you take the effort to go to the ones on Levels 3 and 4 if you prefer a more quiet environment.

Mandarin Gallery

If you have difficulty locating the nursing room in Mandarin Gallery, look out for the baby bottle signage.

There is sufficient space in this room for a single stroller, and it comes with few amenities: a side seat for nursing, a padded change mat on the countertop, and a sink.

Although the nursing area and diaper changing area are within the same room, you can actually lock the whole room so that you get more privacy.

Ngee Ann City

Although there are two nursing rooms located in Ngee Ann City (not including Takashimaya), you should consider going to the one at Basement 2 if you want to use amenities such as power point, hot water dispenser, soap dispenser, and paper dispenser.

If you just need to quickly attend to your baby at B1, there is a lockable room and a sink, which are sufficient for changing of diapers.

While the nursing rooms in Orchard Central previously did not have any changing tables, they have since been upgraded to include a collapsible change table and a hot/cold water dispenser in all of their nursing rooms.

Palais Renaissance

Palais Renaissance’s nursing room is a little small and squeezy, but big enough to push in smaller strollers.

The room has a cushioned stool, a changing table, a sink and a door that can be locked. There is also a child-friendly toilet next to the nursing room, which will come in handy for mums who also have their toddlers in tow.

Dubbed the ‘gold standard of Singapore’s nursing rooms’, Takashimaya’s is a huge upgrade from Ngee Ann City’s basic amenities,

Takashimaya has five nursing rooms, and each room is equipped with a sofa, changing table with seatbelt, bin, plastic bags, electrical point, and full length mirror. Changing stations are also available outside of the breastfeeding rooms, each with a plastic bag provided. High chairs and food warmers are available upon request as well.

What really sets this nursing room apart from the rest is the fact that even fathers and other siblings in the family get to enjoy the experience, as there is a waiting area outside which is equipped with a TV to keep them entertained!

In this shopping mall, you will find two nursing rooms within the mall, and one within Metro department store.

While the amenities provided in both are pretty similar, such as lockable nursing rooms with armchairs and side table, water dispenser, water dispensers, the one inside Metro actually contains a bed and a child-friendly cubicle!

Wheelock Place

While most nursing rooms are usually easily located, Wheelock Place’s one is harder to find, and is only accessible by lift.

This simple, lockable room comes with just a single chair, a sink, and a collapsible changing table. If you are unable to find the nursing room in time and need to quickly attend to your baby, the good thing is that the mall has changing stations in both the male and female toilets on every floor, which means you can let your husband take on the diaper-changing duties.

Wisma Atria

The entrance to the female toilet on Level 3 of Wisma Atria has a nursing symbol to inform you that a nursing room is available inside.

Although it is fairly large and can accommodate about two strollers, you won’t find any other amenities beyond the basic couch for nursing, changing table, sink, and soap dispenser.

The problem of being located inside the female toilet is that it tends to not be very clean, and mothers have complained about it having a bad smell. It is also often mistaken as a resting area since only a curtain separates the nursing area from the main toilet, and will probably not do if you are particular about privacy.
