Slowly, but simply, airports across the usa are catching directly to the truth that nursing mothers in transit want a smooth, safe vicinity to breastfeed their toddlers or pump milk, and that toilet stalls or mop closets aren’t the answer.
A better alternative: the growing range of nursing rooms that are shooting up at airports, and the standalone lactation pods made through Vermont-based Mamava, which might be now at about three dozen airports.
Now, just in time for “DontCryoverSpilledMilk” Day – February eleven – Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is getting six Mamva nursing pods.
Like other airport-established nursing pods, the Zappos-backed Mamava suites at ATL may have locking doors, AC and USB energy, a fold down table and two benches. ATL’s pods, even though, are introducing a few new amenities, together with lactation pad dispensers, cleaning wipes and trash cans, happiness charges, and unique soundtracks designed to get the milk flowing. “Think ocean waves, child giggles, and so on,” says Mamava.
See greater information about the pods and the Zappos partnership on Mamava’s “Pumpcast.”
ATL’s Mamava nursing pods could be hard to overlook: just look for the giant toddlers.
