    Breastfeeding Rooms

    Hi All

    I ventured out of my home with my newborn today into Central for the first time and when baby was hungry I had no idea where to go to feed.

    Do any shopping centres have breastfeeding rooms?
    Where do you go to feed?

    Thanks

    Eugene has a bf room... I also stop sometimes at Starbuck (the big one at Landmark, I just take one of the comfortable seats), I always have a bf apron with me. In the worse case I locked myself in some toilets...

    Is that a changing room, or a bf room? I thought was a changing room... The other day I was in Megabox, when the baby woke up and started crying. So I ended up in their changing room. I was afraid that, as it was a changing room, dads may also use that, but went there anyway. There was a sofa inside, and could bf my baby.

    I think it's a bf room, as there is also a baby changing room beside... but I have a doubt now ;). I never used it, but saw the indication on the door...

    Yeah, Eugene is good for BFing. Also in Central you can BF in B2B. Other than that, it's like the rest of HK- inconvenient and disappointing.

    I find the nearest starbucks and try and sit in a corner. Elements mall in Kowloon has a breastfeeding room as does Harbour City in TST. Not sure about the Island side though.

    The baby nappy change rooms in IFC Mall also have a chair for breastfeeding. But as you'll see from this thread and others plenty of people (including myself) just go to Starbucks or Pacific Coffee and sit in the corner in one of the comfy chairs. Honestly, I'm sure no one realised what I was up to much of the time. Use a nursing cover or carry a big muslin/blanket if you want to cover - but be aware that not all babies like to be covered up during feeds.
