As of November 2015, It seems Austin Bergstrom International Airport HAS NOT provided a proper dedicated nursing mothets room as their website stated. We're very upset and disappointed to hear this. Austin Airport must do better starting with no toilets.
Mom Christine visited firsthand and reported:
"I was at the Austin airport on Tuesday and Wednesday, and I wanted to let you know that they are not nursing rooms. They are all-gender bathrooms. Each has a chair and a plug, a toilet and sink, and a changing table. It was pretty difficult to figure out that they did not have nursing rooms, because they say that the bathrooms are nursing rooms. I found the staff to be very unhelpful, as well."
Thank you mom Christine
Previous and Outdated airport nursing room description:
Austin Bergstrom International Airport has 2 nursing mothers rooms. One located before security checkpoint and the other right after. Moms will find available comfortable padded seating chairs, baby changing tables, electrical outlets for use with an electric breastpump.
Moms who need more info are encouraged to go directly to the information desk or call (512) 530-2242.
Some moms call it Nursing Room, Breastfeeding Room, Lactation Station, and others Lactation Room. MomsPumpHere Nursing Room Locator (also Airport Lactation Rooms Locator) is a breastfeeding room finder, nursing room finder, lactation station locator, and lactation room finder. We find moms nice, quiet places to breastfeed or breastpump no matter what they call it. Lactation rooms also help moms relieve oversupply of breast milk which can cause mastitis while breastfeeding.
From Pregnancy and maternity, to infants, toddlers, parenting and motherhood, MomsPumpHere does its best to help new moms make the transition from nursing at home to breastfeeding or breast pumping for their babies in public. Pregnancy was challenging enough mother's health, finding a nice comfortable spot to nurse your baby shouldn't be.
