Baby Care

FUNKY Hearts Inc is a breastfeeding friendly centre - we are registered with the Australian Breastfeeding Association as one of their  ‘Breastfeeding Welcome Here’ venues. 

But we also understand your baby might be distracted, and some parents like to feed privately. Therefore we have a specially designed Baby Care room for your comfort, which includes:

  • Private Feeding Areas
  • Change Tables & Sanitary nappy disposal
  • Washing Sink - for those unexpected whole-outfit changes!
  • Microwave for baby feeding needs.
  • Our Baby Care Room has been awarded the maximum 5 STARS from the Australian Breastfeeding Association - the highest achievable star rating available!

Australian Breasfeeding Association 5-star venue


Clothing Exchange

Our Children’s Clothing Exchange is a part of our not-for-profit organisation to benefit the community, and is not a commercial operation. It is a way for families to help each other. Help your family, but we ask you also give clothing to help others too. Donations always welcome.

  • Items are sized from newborn to 16. 
  • Bring in your child’s gently used outgrown or unwanted clothes. We operate on a “swapping” basis. We will count up the number of items you bring & apply credits for the total amounts (different types of credits apply). You can then use those credits to “shop” in the exchange! 
  • No money is exchanged.
  • Registration required, terms & conditions apply.

Lending Library

Next to our Baby Care room we have a small library of family-friendly resources on topics like parenting, relationships & family life. They include DVDs as well as books, all available for short-term loan of 3 weeks.

  • Registration required, terms & conditions apply.
  • Please note almost all of the items in the Lending Library are from a Christian faith-based mindset.
