Going potty with the little ones is serious business. Especially if you are potty training a toddler and have dashed halfway across a crowded mall to the nearest public restroom with your second infant and baby gear in hand only to find refuge in a tiny stall that barely gives you enough room to assist your toddler. Did we mention you are sweating buckets, your toddler is threatening to wet his pants any second and it’s breastfeeding time too? Well fret no more, check out these latest trends in these fashionably fun family lounges where the whole crew can find entertainment, microwaves to warm up bottles, take potty breaks, and even privately curtained breastfeeding rooms!

What’s the coolest family lounge you’ve ever seen? Have you been to any of the ones on this list?

These make me jealous!  We don't have any super nice places locally that I've seen.  One cafe used to have a nursing room but they got rid of it.  It was nothing special but nice that they offered it.
