Being a SAHM means you can always bet that I am in my house clothes (read: a ratty shirt and lady boxers) at any time of the day. So, going out, even just doing the grocery, is kinda a momentous event already. I’d like to look put together and though as if I spent a lot of time making myself, well… pretty. But, the thing is, I’m not into fashion; I stick to basics and neutrals when I choose what to wear. My usual outfit is basically a tee or a tank, paired with jeans or shorts and flats (or my Anthropology Hampstead Floral wedges that I’m currently loving). This is my go-to-attire since I’ll be carrying and nursing Z out.
It was a cloudy, first day of July. Daddy and Mommy decided that it’s time you take the plunge. And you (happily) did!
You stayed in the warm water for a 15-minutes with Daddy letting you “swim”. We’re planning to bring you down once a week, so you’ll be familiar with the water (and to get our condo due’s worth!). I’m excited to be in the water with you!
I’m not sure if Rustan’s had a nursing station before the renovation, but now it is located at the 3rd floor in Rustan’s Shangri La Mall. It is conveniently tucked in a small space within the kids section. We’ve used it numerous times when I don’t want to spend money in a resto, hehe. My only complain is: it is too cold! I’ve to use my nursing cover because my thin, asian skin cannot handle the coldness!
Out of the numerous times we’ve been there, it was only us using the room except for 2 occasions. I guess, that’s why the management removed the other sofas and just put bean bags and square blocks. Maybe for the older kids?
The changing table is foamed and they offer free wipes, alcohol and powder.
I hope they put in music to give it a relaxing mood, instead of hearing some salesperson looking for stocks in the next room. They also have displays such as the turtle lamp in the picture above, but it wasn’t with batteries.
All in all, this breastfeeding station is convenient for those who have family members who want to go around the mall first, then just meet up to eat. I wouldn’t really go out of my way to go here if I wouldn’t be buying anything from Rustan’s.
What other malls have breastfeeding stations? Do you use those?! Share your stories, comment below!
