Rochester International Airport (RST) in Minnesota has three ‘Quiet Rooms’ — two post-security and one in the main lobby. The rooms are private with a bed or recliner as well as private adjacent restroom. Nursing mothers may utilize these rooms at any time by simply asking airline or airport personnel for access.
NOTE: These rooms are not dedicated lactation rooms as required by 2023 in the new federal airport breastfeeding rooms law.
State of Minnesota breastfeeding law allow nursing mothers to breastfeed openly in public places.
Friendly Airports for Mothers (FAM) Improvement Act requires Large, Medium, and Small hub airports to maintain a lactation area for nursing mothers and a baby changing table in at least one men’s and one women’s restroom in each passenger terminal building. Large/Medium hub airports must comply by FY2021. Small hub airports must comply by FY2023.
