WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio --
The 445th Airlift Wing opened a lactation room in building 4014, room 110.
This room was established to provide a safe, healthy environment for nursing mothers.
To ensure privacy, there is a lock installed inside of the door. When the room is not in use, the door will remain unlocked with the light off. The door will only be locked when in use.
The room contains a refrigerator for storage that is stocked with water; storage supplies such as plastic storage bags, labels, sharpies and separate containers for each mother. There is also a filing cabinet that contains cloth baskets to store belongings and necessary items without having to drag them back and forth to the unit.
Labels are provided for the baskets so that each mother can have her own. Mothers may also bring their own storage container and leave it in the cabinet. The container must fit inside the cabinet in order to keep the room clean and organized.
A sink is also available in the room with all necessary cleaning supplies provided.
