Nursing on-the-go moms at Long Island Railroad Atlantic Terminal can now breastfeed and breast pump at the new lactation suite.
The private pod, has an enclosed area with two spacious benches, a fold-down table, an electrical outlet for plugging in a breast pump, and a door that can be locked for privacy. It's ADA-compatible with a 60” turnaround for moms using wheelchairs and dual grab bars.
Nursing mothers can contact an agent at the ticket window at Atlantic Terminal daily between 6:10 a.m. and 9:50 p.m. An agent will sign the mother into the pod and key pad her in and the mother will then be able to nurse her baby or use her breast pump. If a mother also requires a changing station for her baby, an agent will help direct her to the restroom.
