Out & About Baby helps you to find the closest, cleanest and most comfortable family friendly facilities based on your current location or unique search options (looking for emergency baby change room anyone?!) It also allows you to plan trips in advance - so the dilemma of deciding where to meet for next week’s mother's group, or finding kid-friendly venues when traveling interstate are solved.
“With the reviews on Out & About Baby, fellow mums and dads can make more informed decisions so they can stress less and enjoy life more when they go out with their kids," says founder and CEO Laura Ruston. “Local businesses can also utilise the valuable feedback they get to improve what they offer families and grow.”
So what makes the grade when it comes to rating family friendly locations? “The best of the best locations are awarded a 'Golden Nappy' which means they consistently receive 5 star reviews in hygiene, privacy, accessibility and atmosphere," says Laura. "Places like play centre Nubo in Alexandria, Livvi’s Place Park in Five Dock, as well as Chatswood Chase Shopping Centre and The Garden in Ashfield all come highly recommended.”
On top of all the handy information, Out & About Baby are also celebrating their launch with a competition where you can win diamonds, so be sure to sign up and review your favourite places and search for new favourites here.
