Lambeau Field breastfeeding station

By  | 

GREEN BAY, Wis. (NBC) -- The Packers were recognized Tuesday for their work to help breast-feeding moms visiting Lambeau Field.

During the Brown County Breast-Feeding Coalition's Educational Conference, leaders with the team were presented with artwork for the two permanent rooms located in the atrium and club level.

Some other NFL stadiums also have permanent rooms. Others use "pods," which are smaller and can be moved.

"We wanted to raise awareness for it. So when people come to the games they are aware that they have the ability to feed the baby in private, if they want to, or pump if they need to. It's phenomenal," said Dr. Jenny Thomas breast-feeding specialist.

Besides game days, the rooms at Lambeau can be used by women at other events held at the stadium.
