Having a quiet and private place to feed a baby is ideal for any mother, but finding an area like that at a Major League Baseball park was unlikely before the Cincinnati Reds built a suite just for nursing mothers.
According to ABCNews.com, Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park has become the first stadium in the league to add a suite specifically designed to give mothers the space and the amenities needed to feed their children in a comfortable setting.
The suite was officially opened on Opening Day of the season, April 6.
The Reds organization joined forces with Pampers and local builder Fischer Homes to create a place where mothers can feel comfortable breastfeeding their child. The stadium had received many requests for better facilities, and the suite was built during the winter while the team was in the midst of the offseason.
ESPN’s Antonietta Collins and Darren Rovell shared a video on Twitter talking about the new upgrades to Cincinnati’s ballpark:
As seen from the video above, the inside of the suite looks incredible. With an up-scale feeling and classy furnishings, this is the ideal setting for a nursing mother to feed her child.
Not only will the suite be set up to give mothers a private location to breastfeed, but it will also offer such amenities as changing tables, lockers, gliding chairs and a kitchenette with a sink.
Add in televisions to help mothers avoid missing an at bat, and the upgrades to the Great American Ball Park should be the benchmark for all other parks and stadiums in the United States.
