Trump Signs Bill to Help Breastfeeding Moms

As of October 5, major airports throughout the country are required to provide clean, private spaces for breastfeeding moms thanks to president Trump. This measure was included in the re-authorization of the FAA that Trump signed that day.

Airports in Atlanta and New York already had lactation rooms, but now there are new guidelines the airports must follow.  Now, medium and large airports must have nursing stations at every terminal after security checkpoints that are shielded from the public. They must not be in a bathroom, be accessible for those with disabilities, have doors that lock, and electric outlets and flat surfaces. 

The bill was introduced in 2017 before being made law by President Trump, and if an airport is having issues with funding for the renovations, grants are available to keep them in compliance.What do you think of this new breastfeeding in airports bill? What's the most difficult thing moms deal with when it comes to breastfeeding?
