Sembawang Shopping Centre is actually a pretty boring place, but due to its close proximity to my home and free shuttle service from Yishun MRT, it’s one of the places I bring MF to quite often. Some of the baby-friendly facilities that make it an ease to bring him there on my own are:
1) Free stroller rental service
You can rent one of the CapitaMall stroller from the Customer Service counter at Basement 1. The stroller can be reclined fully for younger babies. Here’s a pic of MF in a CapitaMall stroller when he was much younger.
2) Sloping escalator
If you are someone who fears pushing strollers up/down escalators, you won’t have that problem at SCC, because the escalators are the sloping trolley-friendly kind.
When out alone with MF, I’m always relieved to find toilets with a child seat, so that I can put him down while I do my ‘business’. However, please watch your baby very closely while you’re doing your ‘business’, because the space for the legs is pretty huge and the baby may fall through!
4) Nursing Room
There is a private nursing room next to the Basement 1 toilets.
5) Splash Park
There is a water playground for kids. MF is too young for it now, but in future I’m so going to bring him there to play!
I love Daiso.. They have a cool collection of stroller accessories such as hooks and blanket clips, useful stuff like straw-cleaning brush, little utensils for kids and interesting toys going for $2, much cheaper than what Kiddy Palace is selling them for! And I absolutely love their cart with baby seat!
