Children’s Museum in Oak Lawn, Illinois is a very trafficked place with many nursing mothers passing through. As such the museum has designated certain spaces as nursing areas where moms can take a break to express breastmilk for their infants.
The museum also encourage moms to nurse throughout the building as it respect their legal right to do so in Illinois.

"They have designated areas throughout the museum for nursing mothers which was a bonus for me considering that I only stopped nursing a little under a year ago.
It can tend to get hectic (we're talking tons of toddlers here), so I wouldn't recommend letting your little one out of your sight for long if ever."
One mom stated:
"it’s small enough to not lose your toddler and there are plenty of benches to sit on and nurse."
Another mom stated: "Both family bathrooms have a chair if you’re looking for a private place to breastfeed, although it’s not very comfortable. There are also tables and chairs on the second floor near the grocery store exhibit."
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.
