The JAX Airport Lactation Suite is for moms that need a place to pump or nurse while in the terminal. The suite is located between the Food Court and Brighton's post-security.
A new room at Jacksonville International Airport is designed to provide mothers nursing children or lactating more comfort and security.
The Lactation Suite has been opened at JIA for mothers travelling through the airport. It is located between concourses A and C and offers seating for both the mother and a companion, a Jacksonville Aviation Authority news release said Monday.
The suite is not only designed for mothers nursing children on a fold-down table, but there are also power outlets to provide electricity to breast pumps.
JAA officials said they are responding to several requests from mothers for the services.
“We regularly receive inquiries from mothers looking for a private, clean and convenient facility at the airport to pump or nurse,” said JAA Customer Service Manager Bryan Long. “We are happy to accommodate their needs with tis family-friendly solution.”
