Mothers shopping with their babies at Walmart will now have a private and secure pods to breastfeed and pump their babies. Walmart has introduced 100 pods across the United States in partnership with Mamava. Mamava is an app that allows breastfeeding mothers  to find locations to safely breastfeed their babies.

The pods have enough access for a wheelchair and a stroller. Breastfeeding should be a right and not a privilege. The two founders. Christine Dodson and  Sascha Mayer designed the app to create the problem of mothers finding a safe and secure private area to breastfeed their babies.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) in 2010 brought it all together for Mamawa when  they launched their app in 2013.

Moms can also control the air flow in the pod and dim the lights via the app.

Walmart received feedback from moms in the three pilot cities that they really appreciated that Walmart offered the pod and really liked the features and convenience of the pod. The company also saw repeat users of the pods, according to Anne Hatfield, Walmart’s director of global communications.

People can find out whether their local Walmart store has a breastfeeding pod via the Mamava app.

“Over the past five years we have placed our pods in airports, stadiums, convention centers, and a myriad of workplaces,” Mamava CEO Sascha Mayer said in a statement. “The Walmart placements are our most public and impactful as they are going to be accessible to many more moms. Our hope is that this sort of infrastructure in store communicates support for the important work of breastfeeding and pumping, and more parents decide to breastfeed because of it.”
