Centrepoint Orchard Road Nursing Room Review

Location of Centrepoint Nursing Room

Centrepoint is currently undergoing major renovations.  The good news for us parents is that along with the renovations came new nursing rooms! Previously, Centrepoint’s nursing room was located on Level 3 and you can find it by following the sign of the baby.

The sign is still there, but when I followed it yesterday, it said the nursing room was under renovation.

So in the meantime, please head to LEVEL 6.   Depending on which lift you use to go up to Level 6, you would end up at one of two nursing rooms available.  If you take the lift at the Metro side, you will find yourself at Metro, and there is a nursing room inside Metro.

If you take the lift on the other side of Centrepoint, you will end up at the Management office, where there is a nursing room beside the toilets.

The nursing room inside Metro looked more like a nursery showcase than a nursing room.   For diaper-changing, there was a play pen available.  And next to it was a sink and soap dispenser for washing hands.  Not a big fan of the dustbin right next to the play pen though.

And there was a comfy looking cot for you to put your baby down to sleep? So now you know.  If you are shopping along Orchard Road and your baby falls asleep, you can come to Centrepoint Metro to let the baby sleep comfortable in the cot. :p

There was a private room for breastfeeding.  The breastfeeding room was separated from the baby changing area by a door with lock.

And inside the breastfeeding room was A BED.  You know, every time I nursed my baby at one of the nursing rooms in Singapore, I always wished I could lie down and nurse.  Because that was how I usually nursed my baby at home.  (Yeah, I’m lazy.)  But of course that has always been impossible because nursing rooms have always provided only a chair for nursing.  But lo and behold, someone actually put a BED in a nursing room!

The nursing room here was a bit more conventional.  Okay, it was better above-average conventional.  But conventional in terms of no beds or cots.

As you can see, the room was spacious and beautifully decorated, with a bench for companions to wait.  I loved the wallpaper and wall stickers here!

There were two diaper-changing areas.

There was a sink and soap dispenser next to the diaper-changing area for washing hands.  (In case you are wondering why I keep harping on this point, I have come across one too many diaper-changing rooms that do not have sink and/or soap dispenser. So never assume they will be there.)

And they had a special bin specifically for disposing diapers.
