Spacious, clean and equipped with adequate amenities, the main baby care room in VivoCity is conveniently located near the open air play area. The nursing rooms are basic, furnished with just an arm chair. There may not be enough space for a stroller in the individual rooms, so you might want to park it outside in the waiting area.

The Baby Centre at Universal Studios is very warm, inviting and has a very homely feel to it. Besides adequate amenities for nursing your little one, it also has tables and toys to keep older siblings occupied, and even a kitchenette equipped with a microwave! The main door to enter the nursing area is lockable, but it is the only access to both nursing cubicles, so it's best to keep it open so another mommy can use the other nursing cubicle. You can draw the curtains for each cubicle for privacy.
