I usually use the nursing rooms at ION when I'm at Orchard because they are almost always very clean. However, I'm not a fan of their electronic door locks

ION Orchard Nursing Room Location

There are nursing rooms at ION on Levels B4, B3, B1, L3 and L4.  However, I think the ones in the basement levels are for diaper-changing only as the electronic doors do not work.  The ones on Levels 3 and 4 usually have working locks and that’s where I would go for breastfeeding.

ION Orchard Nursing Room Review 02

One thing to note about the nursing rooms at ION: The first time I tried to use a nursing room there, I pressed ‘lock’ and the door closed.  However, while I was nursing, the motion-sensored lights kept switching off, leaving me extremely puzzled. (Motion-sensored lights in a nursing room? I don’t move when I’m nursing you know…)  I had to keep standing up and walking around to get the lights to switch back on!  Later on, I heard from my friend that if the door is locked, the light should stay on.  What?! You mean I just spent half an hour nursing a baby while the door was unlocked the whole time?? Thank goodness nobody walked in!  From then on, I always feel a bit insecure when using the nursing rooms at ION.

Description & Amenities

I’m going to show you the nursing rooms at ION Orchard from bottom floor up, so that you know what’s available at each floor and don’t go on wild goose chase at this huge mall. (Because I hate it when I make my way to a nursing room at ION only to find that the door doesn’t lock. Grrr… )

Basement 4

There are two nursing rooms on Basement 4.  One is next to Lift Lobby A and one is inside the food court.

The one next to Lift Lobby A has been renovated and looks like a hotel washroom.

What you can find:

  • Two cushioned diaper-changing stations
  • A hot and cold water dispenser
  • Baby diaper dispenser and baby bed liner dispenser
  • A long cushioned bench in the room

What you CANNOT find:

  • Power point
  • Milk Bottle Warmer
  • Door lock

The nursing room inside the food court is the old nursing room and usually the dirtiest among all the nursing rooms in ION.  I usually come here when I need to do a diaper-change in the midst of a meal at the food court. (You know how babies like to poo when you are halfway through a meal? Yeah, that’s what this is for.)

What you can find:

  • Diaper-changing table
  • Baby diaper and baby bed liner dispensers
  • Milk Bottle Warmer

What you CANNOT find:

  • Water Dispenser
  • Power Point
  • Door lock

Basement 3 and Basement 1

The nursing rooms on Basement 1 and 3 next to Lift Lobby A are the same.  They have been renovated.  The door locks don’t work, so it looks like they are meant to be for diaper-changing only.

What you can find:

  • One cushioned diaper-changing station
  • A hot and cold water dispenser
  • Baby diaper dispenser and baby bed liner dispenser
  • A long cushioned bench in the room

What you CANNOT find:

  • Power point
  • Milk Bottle Warmer
  • Door lock

Level 3 and 4

The nursing rooms on Levels 3 and 4 are the ones I would go to for breastfeeding because their doors can be locked. They haven’t been renovated and look the same as they were 5 years ago.  But because of the high level of cleanliness maintained by the cleaners at ION, they are still as clean as 5 years ago – something I found pretty amazing.

What you can find:

  • One pull-out diaper-changing table
  • A hot and cold water dispenser
  • Baby diaper dispenser and baby bed liner dispenser
  • A plastic chair
  • Milk Bottle Dispenser
  • Power Point
  • Door lock

What you CANNOT find:

  • What else do you need?? Okay, maybe I wouldn’t mind a dustbin that is sealed for diaper-disposal. But like I said, the cleaners here are pretty on the ball, so the rooms are generally pleasant in spite of the open bin.

Stroller Rental

You can rent a stroller for free to be used within the mall.  To rent, look for the main concierge desk on Level 1.  You will need to deposit your IC or Passport with them.
