Where To Breastfeed And Change A Baby In Hong Kong

~ from Geobaby HKG (updated 2013 July 27) and other resources
  1. The Mandarin Oriental, Central - 2nd Floor powder room/washroom near the coffeeshop. Large mirror and nice attendants.
  2. Marriott, Conrad, or Shangri-La, Admiralty - Most have washrooms with a bench and mirror. Also look for the more secluded chairs in lobbies.
  3. Peninsula Hotel, T.S.T. - take the lift to the 1st floor where the bathroom is nice.
  4. Hong Kong Hotel, Kowloon side near Star Ferry. Try any other large hotels as these usually have comfy chairs in the lobbies and clean washrooms for changing babies.
  5. Jusco Department Store, Tai Koo - On the 2nd floor near the baby department there is a changing area and a place to breastfeed.
  6. Pacific Coffee and Starbuck's shops - Most have large chairs and some even have play areas for older children.
  7. Many of the newer Superstore Park N Shops have baby changing/feeding areas with chairs in them. Festival Walk (Kowloon Tong), Paradise Mall (Heng Fa Chuen), Maritime Square (Tsing Yi), Citygate (Tung Chung).
  8. All Mothercare stores have changing areas and usually a chair to sit on. The stores are in Prince's Building, Ocean Terminal, Windsor House and New Town Plaza (Shatin).
  9. Outside Toys R Us in Ocean Terminal there is a special glassed in area to breastfeed and change babies under the escalator.
  10. Eugene Club in Central (next to H&M), TST and in Windsor House (CWB)
  11. Try the changing rooms of Marks and Spencer, Mothercare, Wing On, Lane Crawford or UNY.

    If they are not too busy they will usually let you use a room. Sometimes there are chairs. If not, the carpets are relatively clean.
  12. Ikea in Causeway Bay, Shatin and Prince Edward (not far from Fa Yuen Street market) have changing tables and sometimes a chair. Try the cafeteria for breastfeeding. Usually quiet.
  13. Chep Lap Kok Airport - There are baby changing rooms so you can change and feed your baby before getting on the plane. This is great if you need to wait a long time for your departure. Then you can nurse all the way to your destination on the plane!
  14. Discovery Bay/Star Ferries - The rocking motion will even help baby fall asleep!
  15. Try feeding in McDonald's or a Chinese Dim Sum type restaurant. They are always noisy, so breastfeeding seems less obtrusive.
  16. Dan Ryan's are good places to eat with kids and they have changing tables.
  17. Jaspa's Restaurant, Sai Kung - A good place to eat with kids, very comfortable with breastfeeding mums in the restaurant.
  18. Olympic MTR station/shopping centre - Padded sofas and cubicles with lockable stalls to breastfeed in.
  19. Times Square - 9/F nursing lounge OR Lane Crawford Toilet has Chair and Counter, very quiet.
  20. Prince's Building - Ladies' toilet on the first floor of Prince's Building. Very nice! One big chair just right for breastfeeding. There is an attendant keeping the place clean and handing you fresh towels. And in the floors above are some baby and maternity shops including Mothercare, Toto, and a toy store (can't remember the name).
  21. Immigration Building in Wan Chai - Sitting on the floor of the MTR station at Admiralty (baby began crying from hunger in TST, so I bailed out at Admiralty and just sat down and fed.
  22. IFC 2 Building in Central - IFC women's rooms have breastfeeding/changing rooms(the ones across from the cinema) OR 2nd floor , nursing/baby diaper room on the corridor to the bathroom; not in ladies' rm, so daddy can keep u company OR P3 Near Lane Crawford, Baby Changing Room, small room with one chair, sink, wipes and bottle warmer.
  23. Annerley's Midwives Centre in Lyndhurst Terrace: Changing table and breastfeeding facilities
    Address: Unit 1801, Car Po Commercial Building, 18-20 Lyndhurst Terrace, Central
  24. Maritime Square in Tsing Yi has a nursing room at the same level than all the babies shops and Toys'R us. Very nice and comfortable but don't count on it on week-end, people are queuing up to change baby!
  25. Lee Garden 1 on the floor with all the baby shops - a nice room with changer and couch to BF
  26. Lee Garden 2 outside Habitu, very quiet in the far corner however you are surrounded by tall buildings.
  27. Hong Kong Disneyland in - tucked away in a quiet cosy corner next o the First Aide Center is the Baby Care Room where you can breastfeed in private. It is right beside the Corner Cafe at the end of Main Street.
