I have in mind a series of posts about being the mother/parent of an infant in and around LA – things to do, baby-friendly places, etc. I wonder if there is any interest.
I’ve been compiling a list of places around town that make diaper changes easy, or at least easier. Please chime in with any places you’ve found that are great – and also places that suck.
- Toys R Us (various locations): changing tables in men’s rooms as well as women’s; free supplies in both.
- Babies R Us (Van Nuys): “Mother’s Room” with changing tables and glider for breastfeeding. I was offended by the sexist name and implied shame in nursing (it is, by the way, legal in California to breastfeed ANYWHERE), but it was very convenient and the glider was comfy.
- Bob Hope Airport (Burbank): changing tables iin all bathrooms. Jet Blue terminal has family/handicap restroom with changing table and space for at least two adults and one baby.
- Huntington Garden (Pasadena): family/handicap restroom with changing table in main entrance building.
A couple of weeks ago we were somewhere that didn’t have a changing table in the men’s room, which made me wonder what the hell my husband is supposed to do when I’m not there, but we are both totally fried from vacation and can’t remember where it was.
