Breastfeeding mothers who travel, we feel your pain! We did a roundup of airport nursing rooms for the busiest airports in the world, and were heartened to find that many have dedicated rooms for breastfeeding and pumping mums. While we can’t guarantee loungers and classical music, most seem to have a chair, an outlet and access to hot and cold water. Baby steps, as it were!
Atlanta Airport is the busiest in the world and has not let us down, by providing airport nursing rooms in the form of family restrooms at multiple locations across the airport. Additionally, nursing travelers can use the former British Airways lounge located on Concourse E near gate 26.

Although we couldn’t find anything on the website, we were told via Live Chat on the Dubai Airport that there are dedicated baby care rooms for moms to attend to their babies in private. Nursing moms were asked to consult the airport’s Information Zones, or just ask the May I Help You staff to find one closest to you.
