  • What is a Parents Room?

    Parents rooms offer a safe, private place for men and women to feed, change and care for their young children while they are out and about. They should provide:

    • easy pram access
    • a place to feed in privacy
    • comfortable seating
    • clean environment
    • nappy changing area
    • sink with hand drying facilities, and
    • waste containers.

    Some also have a confined play area and a special, smaller toilet for toddlers.
