Atlanta Airport Adds Nursing Stations After Moms Lobby
The world’s busiest airport now is giving nursing moms a quiet place to pump or breastfeed when they travel. New mothers said they find the lactation stations a big improvement over public restrooms, which used to be the only option for nursing moms at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
“I can come here and put up my feet and feed her,” said Tiffini Gatlin of Atlanta, a mother of four who gave birth to her daughter Zoë a few weeks ago. “It’s relaxing, and definitely comfortable in here.”
Three years ago, a social-media campaign called “Table for Two” used images of models eating in bathrooms to try to persuade the airport to become more family friendly.
