Have you 'shopped' at Australia's first Baby Station vending machines at Melbourne Central or Chadstone Shopping Centre?
This is the first of its kind in the country; a kiosk offering essential care products for little people between 0-5 years.
The clever idea exists thanks to Rachel McGrath, a mum of three young children all under the age of five. Rachel, from Oakleigh in Melbourne South East, came up with the concept because, like many other mums, despite being as organised as possible, sometimes essential things get forgotten from the nappy bag.

Rachel's Baby Station vending machine offers baby care on the go, with items such as nappies, wipes, change mats, nappy cream, bottles, formula sachets, hand sanitiser, dummies, food pouches, spoons, reusable drink bottles and snack containers.
Brands in the machine are those you are familiar with; Nuby, BabyLove, Tommee Tippee and Happy Baby.
Pay by cash, notes or your credit card; whatever you've got available.
There are currently two Baby Station vending machines in Melbourne:
Melbourne Central Shopping Centre (Level 2, just near the Parents’ Retreat)
Chadstone Shopping Centre (Ground Floor, near Aldi, in the corridor opposite Matchbox)
