Sudocrem has announced the 31 winners of its first annual Sudocrem Baby Changing Room Awards. Chosen by public vote, the awards celebrate those venues that provide clean, safe and warm baby changing room facilities, as part of Sudocrem’s 85th anniversary celebrations.
Sudocrem stated that research conducted by eumom shows 94% of parents consider changing rooms important for a day out. Sudocrem launched its public vote to reward those venues that make life easier for parents, as well as encouraging other venues to improve their facilities.
The 3 Star Winners were: Blanchardstown Centre, Dublin; Dundrum Town Centre, Dublin; Kildare Village; MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre, Kilkenny; Mahon Point Shopping Centre, Cork; Boots, Liffey Valley Shopping Centre; Brown Thomas, Cork; Brown Thomas, Dublin; and IKEA, Dublin.

Commenting on the awards, Helen Murphy, Sudocrem, Brand Manager said, “A huge congratulations and well done to all the winners! This is something that affects every Irish parent so Sudocrem are delighted to reward venues striving to make their lives that little bit easier. Overall, parents only rate Irish baby changing facilities as 5.5 out of 10 – Sudocrem wants to change this to 10 out of 10 in the coming years. There is a value in providing good baby changing facilities and parents will return to venues places that meet their criteria.”
