Have you ever been at the mall and gone to the “Parent Room” to nurse your baby, only to find that it’s occupied?
You’re boobs are about to explode and baby is wailing away wanting to eat “RIGHT NOW!”
But you wait patiently because if you were the Mom in the room, feeding or changing your baby, you wouldn’t want someone banging on the door telling you to hurry up. Well…hopefully you are kind enough to wait patiently, but we all know that it’s a stressful situation and you just want to get it started.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a “group” Nursing Room available in public places like Shopping Centres, Airports, Stadiums, Parks, etc?
There are a few places in the world that do cater to the breast feeding mama’s of the world, but I’d love to see more support for these lovely ladies.
Burlington International Airport even has Mamava’s Lactation Station, where you can privately nurse your baby or pump if needed.
Even if they set up a large room with several chairs, change tables and outlets so the Mommy’s could get down to business in a comfortable environment.
I stumbled across the MimmaMà Breastfeeding Armchair while I was looking around for images and info for this post.
These chairs can be mounted on a base so that there are several in a row.
When I was a first time Mom, I was shy about nursing in public, but when baby #2 came along, it wasn’t such a big deal anymore. It makes me think of this great diaper ad.
