Este diseño se ha desarrollado en el marco del proyecto WEMOBILE( para diseñar unos módulos de lactancia independientes que integren música y aromaterapia, y que puedan colocarse en espacios públicos, como centros comerciales, aeropuertos, etc., permitiendo a las mujeres amamantar y relajarse con sus pequeñas familias en privado. Basándose en la investigación, las dimensiones generales de este diseño son comparables a las de los diseños existentes en el mercado, pero este diseño ofrece una experiencia cómoda y relajante única en comparación con sus competidores. La imagen 1 muestra el diseño general, las imágenes 2 y 3 muestran una vista superior/plano del módulo de lactancia, las imágenes 4 y 5 muestran el interior del módulo y la imagen 6 muestra el aspecto que tendría el diseño en un centro comercial.

Great idea! Really useful to have these spaces in shopping centers, stations, airports... why not also in the most "touristy" squares? or in park-ride parking lots?

You have to study well the spaces: to park stroller or if you have two children maybe (the newborn and an older one)?

I like the idea of a "plug & play" option for PT stations/airports etc., that would allow mums and babies to be more protected and comfortable.  I also like the idea of having a dedicated space for another child. However, I feel it is a bit small if you have a stroller. It is not always easy to close the stroller and put all the items into a bag, etc., with your child in your arms.

I like the idea of a privacy room for woman and her child.

Did you take into account whether strollers and co. can be safely parked outside? Is there any space for water or wet wipes? An other idea for the airport or train station is a digital display for depart/ arrive timetable.

Thanks Nicola. Interested to see how this would work as a modular design, so that it could be assembled on-site (and relocated).

Also with an overhead canopy to provide privacy from views from above (in a shaopping mall for instance.) which could provide passive ventilation and an escape route for fragrances/smells.

How would you adapt this idea for a carer of twins, for example?
