Breastfeeding stations: Shangri-La Plaza Mall 

I’ve gotten used to the idea of breastfeeding stations being plain spaces, with a few armchairs, curtains for privacy, and not much else. But the breastfeeding station in the East Wing of Shangri-La Plaza is really nice!

I’ve been there a few times, to pump before going home. It’s located on the fourth floor, on the way to the restrooms.

Upon entry, there’s a sort of reception desk, and there’s always an attendant present. A short distance from that desk are two diaper changing stations.

Then you go through a doorway to get to the actual breastfeeding room.

It’s really cozy! It looks like a condo unit showroom, with nice interior design. In fact, it feels like a living room in someone’s condo.

There are two sinks, a refrigerator, a microwave oven and a water heater.

On the other side of the room are two sofas: a small two-seat sofa, and a bigger one. Both are adorned with cute throw pillows. There are two tables, which usually have magazines.

A few drawbacks:

  1. There are no curtains or cubicles. If there are other women breastfeeding too, then you don’t have any privacy.
  2. I didn’t see any outlets near the sofas. The only outlet I remember is near the mini-fridge, behind the water heater.
  3. The bathroom is still a bit of a walk down the hall, so you can’t easily leave your things, go pee, and then come back to pump or feed.

But it’s such a nice and comfortable breastfeeding room, so these drawbacks are pretty minor. I wouldn’t call them dealbreakers at all!

Also, it’s totally free!
