Yesterday, we had a wonderful trip to London with Jenson and Emeline. Our aim was to go to kidzania – that will be a whole new post!
We travelled from Epping and got the Central Line to Shepherds Bush. This meant we had seats from he start! Emeline of course needed to be fed, I used my breastfeeding cover on the tube, especially with sitting so close to other commuters, didn’t want to squirt their nice clothes with milk!
In standard toddler style, and baby brain mummy, I forgot the potty, Jenson announced he needed a wee. I was mid feeding so we agreed for Scott and Jenson to get off for the toilet and they’d meet me at Shepherd’s Bush. My mummy anxiety went in to meltdown! We all survived though and I had the best deal with a beautiful, calm Emeline!
I am hugely impressed with Westfields Baby facilities! Their dedicated family rooms are fantastic, offering family toilets which have space for two toilets as well as a pram! The changing facilities are clean and comfortable for the bubbas. Jenson was hugely impressed that Frozen was also on the TV so he could watch that whilst we sorted Emeline. Finally, they have a feeding area, four little private rooms with low lighting and comfortable chairs for feeding. There was also a microwave and bottle warming facilities too. Very well done!
Finally, we finished our day with a Wagamamas. I love that restaurant, the do an excellent children’s menu too which Jenson enjoyed and even used their child friendly chop sticks – something I can’t do! Our meal was fantastic as was the service but my god the seating is not suitable for breastfeeding, there is not enough space between the table and chair to get a baby, nor can you relax and lean back on the benches. It was a disaster and I had to go outside to feed our 12 week old.. Not ideal for March at 7pm! It was cold, not to mention inconvinent to leave my family meal.
Finally, we were on our way home. Another seamless tube journey! Thank you TFL!
