From a press release:
“Even the smallest Washington Nationals fans now have a quiet, dedicated place just for them.
The Washington Nationals and Lansinoh Laboratories, Inc. – an Alexandria, VA-based leader in breastfeeding have partnered to create the Lansinoh Nursing Lounge. Conveniently located just off the First Base Line, adjacent to Section 223, the Lansinoh Lounge at Nationals Park is designed to be a quiet and cool retreat for families with young children.
The lounge includes comfortable chairs for mothers, TVs, diaper changing stations, and a play area for toddlers. “We are excited to unveil a dedicated and comfortable space for nursing mothers,” said Valerie Camillo, chief revenue and marketing officer for the Washington Nationals. “We truly value the fantastic feedback fans offered us, and are grateful for Lansinoh’s assistance in creating this space.”
The lounge opening comes on the heels of the release of the 2015 Lansinoh Global Breastfeeding Survey which found 96 percent of women agree that breastfeeding is the best way to feed their children. The Lansinoh Nursing Lounge will provide the perfect environment for nursing fans and their families.
Kevin Vyse-Peacock, CEO of Lansinoh said, “As a local DC-area company and longtime advocate for moms and babies, we were thrilled to help design and support the creation of the Lansinoh Nursing Lounge. Lansinoh is committed to providing breastfeeding solutions for every family and we are very happy to work with the Nationals, who continue to demonstrate their commitment to supporting all of their fans.”
The Lansinoh Nursing Lounge will open when the Nationals take on the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday, August 6.”
