This symbol indicates that baby feeding and changing facilities are available.
The Australian Breastfeeding Association has launched a national campaign to award the Baby Care Room symbol to community premises which provide facilities to enable mothers to feed and change their babies and toddlers when they are away from home.
The Baby Care Room symbol is awarded when a room meets the Essential Criteria for a Baby Care Room. Various features determine if the room is awarded 2, 3 or 5 stars.
A Baby Care Room is always a safe, comfortable, convenient and welcome place to go. A 3 star Baby Care Room is a great place to go, and a 5 star Baby Care Room is fantastic!
Baby Care Room Symbol allocation is done by your local ABA group. If you would like to know more about obtaining a Baby Care Room award for your premises or if you would like to nominate a room for this award contact your local support group or ABA head office.
The following rooms have met the requirements to be awarded a Baby Care Room symbol. If you visit one of them and find it is not up to scratch, please advise our Baby Care Rooms Working Group coordinator, who will arrange for it to be reassessed.
NB: This list may not be complete, as rooms that have not been audited in the last 12 months have been omitted until an audit can be undertaken.
If you are a workplace that is looking to provide facilities and support to your breastfeeding employees please visit our Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace Accreditation program for further information.
