4 Cafes In Singapore To Take Your Sleeping Baby
Any mums who are primary caretakers of their children know that sleeping on-the-go is a thing.
As a work-from-home-mum and the primary caretaker of my 18-month-old, I’ve been scouring Singapore for the best places to go where I can do my work while my baby sleeps. In the chaos of jam-packed Singapore, this isn’t the easiest to achieve, and if you do find a quiet place, they are often difficult to access, uncomfortable to sit in, or their coffee is simply rubbish.
When looking for a spot to ensure my little one can sleep for a long time (that’s over an hour in my books), I look for a place that is spacious, has high ceilings, and good air-conditioning (if I am lucky).
So after a year and a half of trying, here are my top 5 picks to ensure mama has a decent cuppa and a spot to get some work done while baby snoozes.
1. 63Celcius (Paragon)
63Celcius in Paragon is my default favourite place to camp at on weekday afternoons. It’s pretty much empty during the day time, and the “outdoor” section housed within the mall walkway itself has plenty of space to park a stroller. This section is uncovered and opens up directly to the roof of the building, which helps to dispel loud noises that could wake your little one. For mamas who need a coffee (and I sure do), they do pretty good job and have a variety of milks to choose from, with Minor Figures Oat Milk being my favourite.

2. Patties & Wiches
This cafe is the best kept secret amongst Japanese mamas in Singapore. Tucked away in a quiet part of Ngee Ann City, this cafe is perfect to park a sleeping baby while you work. The cafe is surrounded by plush sofa seating and cushioned chairs, which makes it ideal to sit at for a few hours. This cafe is frequented by a mainly Japanese clientele and everyone is respectful and quiet.
Whilst their coffee is passable, they serve amazing cakes from Chef Yamashita which makes the visit totally worth it.

3. Kith Cafe (Marina Square)
Whilst Kith Cafe is well-known to most, a visit to the outlet at Marina Square is a must for every WAHM. It is close enough to an array of kids shops and activities to keep the little one busy, but far away enough in a tranquil spot of the mall where you can definitely get some work done while baby sleeps. Although the food is a little pricey, they have great coffee, comfy seats, and even a little play area for your little ones to stretch their legs post nap. There isn’t much more this mama can ask for. This is the ultimate spot to work or dine at, even on a weekend!

4. The Providore (OUE Downtown)
Despite being a WAHM, sometimes venturing into the hustle and bustle of the CBD is unavoidable. When work meetings and duties beckon, this mama has found that Providore at OUE Downtown is the perfect place to meet, work, and have your afternoon coffee without having to interrupt your baby’s sleep schedule. The spacious interior, powerful air-conditioning, and delicious food makes it possible to have your cake and eat it too!
