is a bathroom stall! Inside the handicap bathroom stall was a rocking chair next a big trash can next to the toilet! Ew!

Then there is the argument about who would want to eat their food in a bathroom. But come on...Who wants to touch the nasty bathroom stall door then touch her nipple and baby's mouth afterward?

sit down in one of the nice rockers in BRU or TRU for sale, and when the ask you to go to the nursing "room", tell them to take THEIR lunch in there and eat it in the freaking bathroom next to a trash can full of crappy diapers!!:

What are these people thinking? Why can't nursing rooms be designed by people who have actually nursed a baby?

BTW, what is TRU? BRU?

My local BRU has a fairly nice room from what I remember. (I was uncomfortable NIP 5 years ago with DD) but I haven't looked at TRU... I'm going to have to make a trip out there.

At our BRU the room was setup really nicely then they actually let the public use it and now it's a horrible stinky mess. Which is too bad b/c DS liked looking at the art on the walls and it has a nice couch, but the smell is a killer.

Same here, which is too bad since sometimes DS is far too distractible to nurse a decent meal in public.

That is a good one!! I wonder why they don't have something nicer? The TRU and BRU's I've been to have nice nursing rooms. Quiet and clean. Much nicer than nursing on the sales floor, although I would do that if they did not have the rooms.

I know that the BRU down the road has a nursing room. It's okay. But it's REALLY small. If you happened to have a stroller, I don't think you would be able to bring it in with you its that small. I used it once when DS woke up right at the end of our shopping trip, otherwise I would have just nursed him while I shopped. It was better than being outside or in my car in the hot FL heat. But no, I would NEVER use the "nursing room" in the bathroom stall! And I wouldn't let TRU or BRU make me go to a nursing room, even if it was a nice one.

You know, I think when my time comes (baby being distractable soregular NIP is not an option), I'm just going to find an out-of the way corner amongst some ugly clothes in a big dept store, or drapes or whatever at whatever store, and sit on the floor, b.c these rooms sound ridiculous!

Not to mention, can you imagine how much it would suck for a person using a wheelchair to end up having to wait 20+ minutes as someone nurses a distractible baby while trying to avoid touching or having the baby touch anything? And then that stall would smell like dirty diaper too. Bleah....

I wonder - that may be against some kind of Federal Code regarding Americans with Disabilities Act. Hmmm? I don't think they can do that...I've researched the law too, because we're putting new bathrooms in a building we own and we wanted them up to Federal code, not just local (which seems weird there would be two, but in that town, there are...go figure).

That's a good point. I wonder if a person in a wheel chair can even fit into that stall now, since there is a rocking chair, big trash can, toilet of course, and even a baby changing station - like a nicer wood one that is always set up, not one that folds down from the wall. So it would be VERY hard for a wheelchair to be maneuvered in there. Hmm...
