Good or bad idea: California to Require Breastfeeding Rooms at Airports

Good or bad idea: California to require breastfeeding rooms at airports?

I like the idea but I like my privacy while breastfeeding. I think it is a step in the right direction that they are actually thinking of nursing moms. I'm not sure how many pumping moms actually want to pump in public, do you?

    I like the idea. Even if it's just a little conference room somewhere-only moms and young kids allowed sort of thing. Some moms are perfectly comfortable nursing in the airport waiting areas, other moms prefer to be in private.. With mine I prefer a quiet corner if we are out, other they won't eat well because they hear a noise and want to know what it is, and you can't do that and nurse. :D

    Our little airport in Sioux Falls has a nursing/changing room, really tiny, mor like a converted broom closet, but it's there and it was a blessing when we were waiting on family to fly in. Likewise the mall has a place, too (along the the dozens of stores that encourage use of their rooms for nursing).

    I've heard the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport which has a jungle gym for young travelers waiting encourages breastfeeding at the jungle gym.

      I like the idea, the jcpenny here has a nursing room with a rocker and a changing table in it. It was really nice when I was nursing bentley
