As of May 8, 2015 Philadelphia International Airport now offer nursing moms a dedicated nursing lounge in partnership with Minute Suites. Located between Terminal A and Concourse B, the nursing rooms, seven feet by eight feet, will be:
1) FREE to nursing mothers for the first 30 MINUTES
2) Cost $14 for an additional half-hour (unfortunately).
Currently no other airports with nursing mothers rooms are charging for any overage time so we sincerely hope Philadelphia will keep it free period and NOT follow through with this unwelcomed payment policy.
"The mini-rooms have a daybed sofa, TV, work station, sound suppression system, temperature controls, and free Internet, but no bathroom. The nearest public restrooms are a few dozen paces away across the airport corridor."
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.
