Reagan Conference Room: Now that the new nursing lounge is open we are not sure if they are still making the Reagan Conference Room available to moms. If the Lansinoh Nursing Lounge is packed please ask if the conference room is available.

According to Mom Katie R. though, the conference room is very stuffy and uncomfortable. She stated the room:
"is stuffy and warm, requiring the door to be open for air flow. She couldn’t watch the game in the room and, with the door open, it’s not particularly private."
As a result of a change.org petition Katie created to get a nursing mothers room created, the National spokewoman stated:
"As part of planned 2015 season projects, we are in the preliminary stages of creating a state-of-the-art space to accommodate nursing mothers, and hope to have it completed and open by the All-Star break,” team officials wrote in an email. “In the interim, we will work to address the feedback in the petition, including ensuring the game is broadcast in the current space, the room’s use is clearly identified and that the temperature is more consistent."
Note: This is one of the larger size MLB nursing rooms compared to the nursing pods.
