As a breastfeeding mother, I was thrilled to discover a spacious family room in my local mall that has a play area well equipped with toys, three nursing rooms with curtains and cushy chairs, a large screen tv and couch, and plentiful sinks that each have changing tables with mobiles built into the counter top next to them. Designed by what I can only imagine must be a genius architect (and probably a mother), it is located next to the food court. Thanks to some savvy urban planning, this is now my go-to place for one-stop shopping.

While it seems like a no-brainer for mall revenue, not every shopping center has such a family friendly facility — maybe they should?
