Swedes have generous maternity leave policies, free buses for parents with strollers and special train cars for families with young children.
If you can’t make the trip to Sweden to indulge in this baby welcoming attitude, just head to Ikea.
Ikea has taken the baby welcoming spirit of the Swedes and crammed it into stores that stand apart.
Plop that babe in the free-to-use stroller. Take a whirl through a shop with pleasant lighting and tons of colourful doo-dads for the little one to look at. Hand your antsy babe a set of lime green coasters and you’ve got entertainment for the whole trip.
Hungry? No problem. The restaurant has those adorable Swedish meatballs for babe to snack on and a full kids menu.
They haven’t forgotten about pre-solid food babes either. They provide clean, private feeding and changing rooms that are as modern as the latest Ingvar bookcase. These rooms have a comfy chair and room for a stroller. And, they are accessible to both moms and dads. Is that smart, or what?
Those Swedes sure seem to have it all figured out.
