Last year, lawmakers signed an act that required airports to provide lactation rooms. These rooms, located in each commercial terminal building, allow moms to breastfeed in comfort and peace.

Some commercial airports already provide these rooms, but now each one will be required to have them past security. Some requirements for these rooms include a locking door, an outlet, a flat surface (such as a table or counter), and public availability (USA Today). 

A senator and representative introduced these bipartisan bills last year, where they were eventually approved. According to USA Today, the bill "makes grants available to airports to help them with renovations they'll need to meet requirements." The lactation rooms make flying less challenging for breastfeeding moms.
