Travel: Vermonters design a nursing lounge for the airport

A "lactation station" prototype

A "lactation station" prototype

Air travel is challenging enough these days, but it's even more so with an infant in tow — especially when you factor in breast-feeding or pumping. "When I was on the road, I was dealing with toilets and gross places to do this," recalls Sascha Mayer, a mother of two and senior brand strategist at JDK Design. That's why she and JDK account director Christine Dodson cofounded Mamava, which designs nursing solutions for mothers on the go. Their first big effort? A nursing lounge at the Burlington International Airport. Completed in mid-May, the private space replaces a wall of pay phones and functions as a prototype for Mamava's future projects, which will include freestanding "lactation stations" for public places. Because, as one Mamava video states, "It's time for lactation to come out of the closet, the restroom, the cubicle."
