We know how hard it is to be a nursing mom and to find place to nurse/pump while traveling. We did some research to find nursing rooms or facilities for nursing moms around the busiest airports in the United States. Here’s what we found:
Atlanta is the world’s busiest airport and provides 4 Mamava breast-feeding pods. Airport nursing rooms in the form of family restrooms are also located across the airport. Additionally, nursing travelers can use the former British Airways lounge located on Concourse E near gate 26.

LAX tweeted to us rather apologetically that they currently had no facilities for nursing moms, but were looking to offer some in the future. We are going to hold you to that, LAX!
While O’Hare doesn’t yet have a designated Mother’s Room, the airport is happy to provide nursing mothers a comfortable, private space to breastfeed. Go to the Travelers Aid office in Terminal 2.

DFW offers a nursing room for moms near gate A18. Moms are asked to call 972-973-3112 for the access code. At least that’s something.
JFK tweeted to us that we had to check with our airlines for facilities in any particular terminal. Not very helpful at all. Representatives from Delta and Lufthansa were not able to provide any information. Jetblue however was kind enough to let us know that in T5, not only are there single restrooms with lockable doors near the gate areas, but a newly installed purpose-built pod too. Ask for assistance in locating.
