Summary

Directs parents of babies to the nearest public baby-changing facilities in the UK. Relies on GPS and Google Maps. Green pins indicate facilities currently believed to be in operation; amber pins indicate facilities that may be out of action. Selecting one of the 7,000 listed facilities will bring up its name and hygiene rating. Further selection will show a full address and location details. After visiting a facility, the user can help other parents by confirming whether it is still publicly available, and rate it on a one-to-five star scale for hygiene. Unlisted baby-changing facilities can be posted at any time after visiting them.

Reviews

Reviewer: National Childbirth Trust (NCT), UK
Review: “Our ‘Babychange’ app uses the latest geolocation technology to let mums and dads easily find their nearest baby-changing facilities. The app allows parents to rate the changing room, so that others know if it’s a good, clean, changing facility. Parents can also add previously-unlisted locations via the apps interface. The app has been very well received by parents and NCT members, and has won several awards. It is easy to use, and parents tell us they love the fact that they are able to add new facilities when they find them, and to rate the ones they visit, so that other mums and dads can find their way out of a nappy emergency. Initially, the app did not allow users to add new locations when they were not actually there. However, the newest upgrade does allow you to recommend facilities even when you are somewhere else. Additionally, the biggest complaint we receive is that there is no version for Android, as of yet.”

Review: "NCT’s vision is a world where parents are valued and supported to build a strong society. Enabling and supporting parents to help other parents is what NCT is all about. Our NCT Babychange app uses the latest technology – geolocation - so mums and dads can easily find their nearest baby changing facilities. The app allows parents to rate the changing room so others know if it’s a good, clean changing facility to use. Parents can also add previously unlisted locations via the apps interface. The app has been very well received by parents and NCT members, and has won several industry awards. It is easy to use, and parents tell us they love that they are able to add new facilities when they find them and to rate the ones they visit so other mums and dads can find their way out of a nappy emergency! Initially, the babychange app did not allow users to add new locations when they were not actually there. However, the newest upgrade does allow you to recommend facilities even when you are somewhere else. Additionally, the biggest complaint we receive is that there is no version for Android as of yet - but it's coming soon!"
