Not having access to the baby changing facilities because they are located in the ladies’ loo or they are simply not there is a common frustrating occurrence.
Ashton Kutcher took to social media this year to vent his angst about this issue and highlighted a very good point: dads change nappies too. Thousands of dads across the country agreed and championed Kutcher’s campaign to improve baby changing room facilities.
Sudocrem Care & Protect have been encouraging retailers to improve their baby changing rooms for a few years already and this September, Sudocrem Care & Protect will launch the third ‘Baby Changing Room Awards’ where the public can vote for who they believe provides the best baby changing room facilities. Last year saw Sainsbury’s in Wandsworth, London crowned the winner.
“It’s often simple things like good baby changing facilities that make life better for parents in the First 1,000 Days”, says father-of-three Nick Wilkie and CEO of NCT, “That’s why the Baby Changing Room Awards are such a great idea and why NCT is so pleased to be involved.”
And it’s not just shopping which creates nappy-changing challenges, many motorway services aren’t very baby friendly! That’s why this year’s awards include a new category – Best Service Station – along with Best Retailer and Best Independent Retailer.
Sudocrem Care & Protect has 5 Star Reviews on TheBabyWebsite and is a unique nappy rash ointment which acts as a barrier to protect delicate skin against the chemicals found in urine and poo. It conditions the skin with Vitamin E and pro Vitamin B5, which helps to protect your baby’s skin and keep it soft, healthy and moisturised. Finally a protective barrier guards against infection.
Not only does this changing bag essential provide triple protection against the cause of nappy rash but it’s also been developed with the practical considerations of parents in mind as it has a hinged flip-top lid which gives quick, mess-free access to the ointment using just one hand; a must when nappy changing demands speed and efficiency!
