Nursing Station & Kid's Corner at Tagbilaran Airport

by - 12:13 PM

Bohol will always be a home for me - that's where my mother grew up along with her 15 siblings. Yeah, that many! *grin* My mom decided to work here in Manila after college. She then met my father and had me. So basically, I grew up here. Every year or 2, we go home for the fiesta and sometimes my Lola's birthday which falls on June (start of classes).

When I was still single, I travel to Bohol from time to time, alone. However, my itinerary only includes MLA-CEB flight, then a 2-hour ferry ride to Bohol. You see, I don't like long flights. Besides, it would also take more than an hour ride from Tagbilaran airport to my Lola's house and no one's going to pick me up there. Unlike from the port where the ferry arrives, it would only take 10-15 mins.

When I got married and had my daughter, my Mom decided to relocate in Bohol and stayed there for good with my Dad to take care of my Lola, who was still alive then. Now that I'm traveling with a child, I had to bid goodbye to my usual 45-50 minute plane ride for an hour and 15-minute. It's easier to have a direct flight from Manila to Tagbilaran when you have a child and tons of baggage to look on to. And since my dad is there, I don't have to worry about who's going to pick us up anymore.

This year's vacation was my daughter's second in Bohol. When it was time to go back here in Manila, I was really surprised to see there was a Nursing Station & Kid's Corner at Tagbilaran Airport's 2nd floor waiting area! 

I know this was just new because last year it wasn't there yet. I remembered I kept chasing Izza because she loves running around the second floor. I was scared because she might fell off the stairs. 

So I'm really glad they decided to put up this room for mommies and kids. It was such a big help for people who travel with their family. It's actually a great place for kids to hangout while waiting for delayed flights. *wink*

Kids would really enjoy this playroom. They have toys for girls and boys, and they also have a television mounted on the wall where they were playing movies for kids. They had Frozen when we were there.

The nursing station is located behind the shelves. I didn't get a chance to take a picture of it, but it was actually spacious. The airport had a plus on that!

Too bad, Izza didn't get to spend more time inside the play room because the plane that will bring us back to Manila already arrived. I was actually worried that she might not go out because she was still enjoying in there.

Now I like Tagbilaran Airport better!

I do hope that all airports here in the Philippines would reserve one space for moms and kids.
