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)
One of the world’s most famous stories is being brought to life this summer by Playhouse Pantomimes! Join them on a magical journey through a mystical world in their mesmerising current production of 'Alice in Wonderland.'
Dining out with the kids is not always easy, but it can be even harder trying to find family-friendly options when you are vegetarian, vegan, paleo or gluten free. If you can relate to this, make Plant Based Mum your go-to blog.
