Empire Reel Babies Blog Tour
I think one of the hardest things about having a baby is finding baby friendly places to take them to. You're always worried about them crying or needing to be breastfed (if you breastfeed) or needing a diaper change and somewhere safe and clean to do that.
Empire Reel babies provides a baby friendly environment where you can feed, change and cuddle your baby and watch the latest movie! It doesn't matter if your little one is crying either as the movie theatre is just for moms and babies so there'll probably be lots of crying! It's a great outing for new parents! The theatres are equipped with a change table, bottler warmer, exersaucer, play mat and swing. Everything you might need to care for your little one and watch a movie. The lighting is kept dim (not as dark as a regular movie) and the sound is at a lower volume for the babies. Showings are every 2 weeks and you can go to the website and vote for which movie you'd like to see. What a great place to meet up with your mom friends or for dad to enjoy some time with baby.
I've been to Empire Reel babies about 18 months ago when my now 2 year old was a baby and there was no change table, exersaucer or any of the amenities stated above. It was still nice to get out and see a movie with friends though. Empire Theatres has graciously provided me with free passes that I plan on sharing with my mommy group. I have a 3 month old too now and haven't taken her to the movies yet so I'm looking forward to joining my mom friends and checking out Reel Babies again and the amenities that are provided. My daughter, who isn't as laid back as my son, probably will scream and cry but I won't have to worry about getting dirty looks from people as other moms will be used to it!
I will be posting a follow up post with my Empire Reel Babies experience!
