Nursing moms will now find the San Antonio International Airport to more accommodating.

The airport has added two lactation stations, one in each terminal. Both of the stations are past the security checkpoints, marked by the international breast feeding symbol (pictured to the right).

The airport already had a station in front of security, but no specific place in the gate areas for mothers to nurse their baby.

The stations are made by Vermont-based Mamava, which specializes in breastfeeding products. The self-contained "lactation suites" comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
