Game Changer! Cincinnati Reds Build Nursery for Moms (Photos)
We’re still a week away from baseball season’s Opening Day, but one major league team has already hit a home run for new moms.
The Cincinnati Reds are ready to debut an in-stadium nursery within the Great American Ballpark. After requests from moms for a private place to feed babies at the park, the Reds partnered with Pampers and local homebuilder Fischer Homes to make it happen.
The result? The Pampers Nursing Suite: a charming little indoor space that caters specifically to breastfeeding moms.
“Moms are looking for places to nurse, a secluded area to pump, a comfortable diaper changing area, and a place to store her things,” says Amy Hucke, a Fischer Homes architectural designer. The suite, which looks like a small home, also features gliders, a kitchenette, ice and refrigeration and a private restroom. Oh, and most importantly, a flat-screen TV so mom doesn’t miss the game.
Complete with chevron decor and a gender-neutral red and gray color scheme, this space has our nursery style stamp of approval.
