"Since we're both Padres fans" Joelle Myers

#wholettheboobsout ? 

Anywhere parent and child are admitted, #breastfeeding is protected.  I favor conspicuous #nursinginpublic, because our culture needs to get over it. The more people are around breastfeeding, the better.  Professionally, I am a proponent of nursing in public, uncovered.  Personally,  I admit to you all that I barely had the courage to nurse uncovered, myself.  


This lounge offers great seats to watch the game.  In the air-conditioned area, you can find a refrigerator, water, ice, privacy and quiet. I am impressed that you can order drinks delivered.


Even if you are happy to nurse in public, baby might want/need a calmer place.  The lounge is for all mothers, and could be ideal if anyone is feeling overstimulated.   When I found the door, an attendant asked if I need to #pump, with zero awkwardness.  In my opinion, ball park attendants nonchalantly discussing pumping and breast-feeding is a non-tangible benefit to places dedicated to mothers.  I was admitted, once I explained that I am  an #IBCLC, researching for my clients.  The first thing she said is, [they can nurse their baby anywhere, in #California].  Another non-tangible benefit, the attendants know the law protects mothers feeding their babies.




How to find the #petcoparknursinglounge , a cool quiet place for all mothers

This sign is displayed above changing stations.  #ToyotaTerrace seems easy enough to find, but I found it challenging.  From the Western Metal building, take the elevator to the 5th floor.  It will bring you quite near suite 32.  There is an attendant at the elevator who can direct you.

From the other direction: take the ramp near section 118/116 and follow the signs to Toyota Terrace.  


Every Sunday home game has Kids Fest, and 50% off tickets for military beneficiaries.  Padres offer off 25% off all other dates.  For the #militarydiscount ,you can verify eligibility via this link:
