“Where are the baby changing facilities?”

“Are there family friendly places to eat?”

“Is there any entertainment for the children?”

Let’s explore, shall we?

“Where are the baby changing facilities at East Midlands Airport?”

Baby changing facilities at East Midlands Airport - Travelling with Children
Adjacent to men’s and ladies’ toilets, both before and after security, you’ll find dedicated baby changing rooms with seating for nursing for breastfedding mothers.

Speaking of feeding, you’re allowed to take enough baby food or milk through security as is needed for the journey, so don’t worry about the 100ml limit on those.

“Are there family friendly places to eat in the airport?”

You’ll find it located on the first floor food court, perfectly situated by the restaurants so you can relax while the kids play – so long as you can supervise them!

Please note that the area isn’t staffed so parents and guardians are responsible for the behaviour and safety of their children when using the soft play equipment.
