In celebration of Mother’s Day, JetBlue is excited to partner with Mamava and Seventh Generation to bring the first private nursing pod to JFK Airport. This private lactation suite provides another option for nursing moms who seek more privacy when nursing their little ones while traveling through T5. The nursing pod is now available at T5 and is located next to the Kids Play area near Gate 12.

These pods meet the growing interest of mothers to have the choice of a clean, quiet and private space to pump or nurse at the airport. Created by Mamava, a company dedicated to transforming the culture of breastfeeding, the self-contained, mobile pods offer comfortable benches, an electrical outlet and door that can be fully shut for privacy. The 4 ft by 8 ft pods comfortably fit mom traveling with breast pump and luggage or baby, dad and siblings.

JetBlue currently offers family restrooms at T5, but we understand that some moms may like a more private setting when nursing. These nursing pods add humanity to the travel experience and will be available to all travelers as well as crewmembers. This is just one more option for moms on-the-go.
