Over the years the debate surrounding public breastfeeding has been going on and on. Some people feel breastfeeding is apart of life and should be done in public, while others feel it should be done in private.

But that is all about to change. When moms are traveling by plane will have a breastfeeding station to feed their babies. Just so it is known, ALL commercial airports are now required to install lactation rooms throughout the airport for nursing moms.

According to USA Today, “the moves comes as a part of the Friendly Airports for Mothers Act from 2017. The act was a part of the five-year reauthorization of the Federal Aviation which was signed on October 5.”

The rooms are required to at every passenger terminal and there is also a list of conditions that the airports must follow including being shielded from view and being behind security.
