After visiting over a hundred nursing rooms and putting together a mega directory of all the nursing rooms in sunny Singapore, I think it’s safe to say I’ve seen my fair share of mediocre and outstanding nursing rooms. In no particular order, here are 10 of the best nursing rooms in Singapore that you should definitely check out if you’re in the area.
10 of the Best Nursing Rooms in Singapore
1. Takashimaya Nursing Room
Address: 391A Orchard Rd, Singapore 238873
Location: Level 4
A sprawling area allocated to young parents, the Takashimaya nursing room is the epitome of family-friendly. The Takashimaya nursing room, one of the best nursing rooms in Singapore, goes above and beyond to ensure a pleasant shopping experience for families with young children, and is not just an afterthought or an obligatory gesture. Beautifully decorated, the nursing room also has a dedicated waiting area for other family members, something that is rare. There are also many private breastfeeding rooms and diaper changing stations, ensuring that several families can use the facilities at any one time, so that parents can quickly attend to the needs of their young children. There is also a helpful Huggies diaper dispenser in the unfortunate event where you run out of clean diapers.
2. TANGS Nursing Room
Address: 310 Orchard Rd, Singapore 238864
Location: Level 2 near the restrooms
EXPECTING SOON?: Read This as You Prepare for Baby's Arrival
The TANGS nursing room is a personal favourite (which may or may not be due to the charming illustrations of Paddington Bear). That aside, the TANGS nursing room is a peaceful place with two spacious breastfeeding rooms. It is also one of the few nursing rooms with a baby crib mobile, a thoughtful fixture to keep junior entertained while you make a quick diaper change. It definitely belongs on any list of the best nursing rooms in Singapore.
3. Suntec City Nursing Room
Address: 3 Temasek Blvd, Singapore 038983
Location: Level 1 (near Adidas, near restrooms)
Super spacious and one of the best nursing rooms in Singapore, the Suntec City nursing room has a well-deserved spot amongst the best nursing rooms in the country. The nursing room has four padded diaper changing stations that each come with an individual dustbin, making dirty nappy disposal extremely convenient. There is also a small padded bench that you can pull out to load your diaper and shopping bags, a very thoughtful and well-designed feature that I have not seen in other diaper changing stations. What causes the Suntec City nursing room to shine is the uPang Baby Bottle Steriliser, something that only the Suntec City nursing room has, allowing parents to clean and sterilize milk bottles after feeding or prepare baby formula.
4. IKEA Tampines Nursing Room
Address: 60 Tampines North Drive 2, Singapore 52876
Location: Level 3 (near to restrooms and ATM machines)
The IKEA Tampines nursing room is large and spacious, with not just one but three pram parking lots. There is also a helpful diaper and baby bed liner dispenser, in the event that you run out our these diaper bag essentials. A special feature is the dollhouse in each private breastfeeding room, something truly unique to the IKEA Tampines nursing room.
5. Jewel Canopy Park Nursing Room
Address: Airport Blvd, Singapore 819666
Location: Within Canopy Park
The Jewel Changi Airport Canopy nursing room is extremely well-designed. It is also one of the only nursing rooms where you have to “pay for admission” – in the form of admission fees to Canopy Park. From the soothing palette of browns to the amenities and a diaper changing area which overlooks the children’s play area, the Jewel Canopy Park nursing room is more than you can expect in an ordinary parenting room – one of the best nursing rooms in Singapore. Find out more.
6. 313@Somerset nursing room
Address: 313 Orchard Rd, Singapore 238895
Location: Level 5, located near the female restrooms at Foodrepublic
Spacious, clean and colourful, the 313@Somerset nursing room houses many private breastfeeding rooms, ensuring that parents don’t have to wait too long to use the facilities. There is also a separate toilet within the nursing room that has child-friendly facilities, very helpful for parents who also have slightly older children. The 313@Somerset nursing room is truly a family-friendly nursing room, catering to families with young children of varying ages.
7. ION Orchard Nursing Room
Address: 2 Orchard Turn, Singapore 238801
Location: B1, near the female restrooms
The ION Orchard family-friendly facilities consist of a separate diaper changing room and nursing room, catering to parents who need to use the facilities for different purposes. The diaper room also has a handy baby diaper and baby bed liner dispenser, a useful feature not seen in most nursing rooms (only common for those found in Changi Airport). Definitely one of the best nursing rooms around.
8. United Square Nursing Room
Address: 101 Thomson Rd, Singapore 307591
Location: Level 1
Decorated in vibrant colours, the United Square nursing room is undeniably well-equipped with the necessary family-friendly facilities. What puts the United Square Nursing Room head and shoulders above the rest is the helpful directory to the various family-friendly services offered by the mall – useful information for parents to know. There is even a cabinet with accompanying products catered towards young children, something that young parents will definitely appreciate.
9. Terminal 4 Nursing Room
Address: Airport Blvd, Singapore 819666
Location: Level 2M (within Food Emporium, near the toilets)
The Terminal 4 nursing room is extremely spacious with ample space not only for you to wheel your strollers but also your luggage trolleys. There is even a spot for you to park your prams before attending to the needs of your little one. The Terminal 4 nursing room is a spacious and spotless place with not one or two but four private breastfeeding rooms for nursing moms to breastfeed comfortably.
10. Jem Nursing Room
Address: 50 Jurong Gateway Rd, Singapore 608549
Location: 2 Orchard Turn, Singapore 238801
The Jem nursing room is extremely spacious, something I’ve found rare for most nursing rooms in the West that tend to be smaller. The roomy environment makes navigating your stroller around very easy and the four private breastfeeding rooms are cosy pods that are well-furnished with the essential facilities for breastfeeding mothers to nurse or express in peace and privacy.
