Having to change a nappy when you’re out and about is never fun and sadly it’s often made worse by inadequate facilities or poor quality baby changing rooms.
This year Ashton Kutcher has highlighted that ‘Dad’s change nappies too’. With some baby change facilities located in womens toilets only, it can be a struggle for Dad to even find somewhere to change the nappy. It seems Dad’s across the UK agreed with him, and have responded to Ashton Kutchers campaign to improve baby changing facilities.
Sudocrem, famous for their brilliant nappy rash ointments have come up with the The Sudocrem Care & Protect Baby Changing Room Awards. The awards are in their third year and allow the public to vote for their favourite baby changing room facilities, whilst encouraging retailers to improve their own.
This years awards sees new category, Best Service Station as well as Best Retailer and Best Independent Retailer. Some of the most terrible baby changing rooms I’ve seen have been in service stations so I do hope that the new category encourages services stations to up the standards a little.
Last year say Sainsbury’s in Wandsworth crowed the winner and received a special certificate allowing them to display the Sudocrem Care & Protect Baby Changing Room logo. Everyone who nominates their favourite changing facilities will be entered to win a stay at family friendly hotel, Knoll House in Dorset, so it’s defiantely worth checking out the website for details on how to vote.
Entries will be judged by Nick Wilki, CEO of NCT, and Sudocrem. The closing date for entries is 13th of December 2015 and the winners will be announced in the first week of January 2016.
