Dollar Tree-Any Fresno store

23 Sep

0 of 5 Stars

I almost dread having to go to this store.

Not because I will go in for 1 or 2 items, pick up whatever I fancy, all along saying, “hmm, it’s only a $1” & come out with more than $20 of items ;P

It’s also not  because the ghetto-ness varies from store to store; But if you have to go with toddlers or babies-Plan ahead!

This is a VERY un-baby friendly store.

Very, VERY rarely will you find a Dollar Tree store where they will allow you use of a public restroom, which therefore takes away any changing table (which they don’t have anyways), & FORGET anywhere to nurse!

So in (very) short, Not baby/toddler/Nursing Friendly. You’re better off almost anywhere else :-/

If you’ve been to a Dollar Tree Store & had a better experience, PLEASE, let us know which one 🙂

Heading to New York city?? Need a place to breast-feed?

8 Aug

I found a great little link on places to nurse in New York City.  I’ve personally never been but if you’re going there, you can use this list as a starting point. Plus, take a look at the comments below the article at all the other places people mention.

Regal Manchester Stadium 16 (Signature Theater)

12 Oct

            2055 E. Shields Ave. Fresno, CA 93726

4 Stars out of 5 Stars

Pros:

  • Have changing table in bathroom
  • Have booster seats (who knew!?)
  • Can park your stroller next to your seat in the front rows

Cons:

  • No designated nursing room
  • The sound of the movies can be REALLY loud, especially for little ears.

Personal Experience:

Taking babies or small children can get controversial amongst movie go-ers. When they are small they are more portable, sleep longer & don’t want to run up & down the aisles. BUT, the movies can be VERY loud for them which is why some people have them wear something to block some of the sound. While there is no designated nursing room, the theater is dark enough that you feel you have some privacy…hoping no stranger is sitting right next to you : p

Depending on the movie (kids movie or not) people will tolerate some noise from your kids, but non-kid movies…not too much.

I’d say this theater is about as kid/baby friendly a movie theater can be.

Big Fresno Fair-Nursing Room

5 Oct
This is a special FYI to all nursing mommies,
Here’s a bit of exciting or good news; the Big Fresno Fair will have a special “Mommy Zone”  just for breastfeeding moms. It will be a private, air-conditioned space for moms to feed and change their babies.
How great is that!!!
It’s located near the Found Children’s Gingerbread House just inside the Westamerica Bank Gate Entrance on Chance Ave. So you can plan a nursing trip around your famous fair corn dog, cinnamon roll or mmm, deep fried ice cream!   : D
If you use it, let us know about how comfortable it was for you! =)
