The holidays are in full swing and that means a lot of busy moms on the go! Traveling during the holidays can be stressful and traveling with little ones can add more stress. Finding a private and/or quiet place to nurse or feed your baby in a busy airport can be like finding a needle in a haystack, luckily we’ve done some research for you, here’s a look at the Top 5 US Airport Mother’s Lounges/Lactation Rooms.
1. Minneapolis, Minnesota – St. Paul International Airport

3. Madison, Wisconsin – Dane County Regional Airport
Dane County Regional Airport has three private mothers’ lounges throughout the airport. Each lounge has a leather chair, table, electrical outlets, sink and changing table.
4. Burlington, Vermont – Burlington International Airport
This Vermont airport was once the site of a “nurse-in” where people protested the in-flight treatment of a breastfeeding mom. Today the airport has a Mamava box that allows moms to nurse their babies or pump in a quiet and private space. Each Mamava box comes with antimicrobial surfaces, electrical outlets and soft lighting.
5. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – Pittsburgh International Airport
