FedEx Field: Support Nursing Redskins Moms

This petition had 213 supporters

Being born and raised in the Washington DC metro area, I’ve spent many years surrounded by fans and supporters of the Washington Redskins, including myself and many of my friends. Since I live just outside of the city, I love going on family outings to Redskins games since it is a great way to meet other Redskins fans, de-stress after a long day of work, and have a fun time. Unfortunately for a lot of families and friends of mine, mothers who are nursing are forced to watch the game at home because FedEx Field doesn’t offer a designated room for breastfeeding or breast pumping.

Join me in calling on FedEx Field to provide a comfortable space for moms to enjoy the game while breastfeeding.

When I first became a mother, I was happy to be able to breastfeed my children, and it was great to see so many businesses support new moms by providing space for breastfeeding. That’s why it is so disappointing that a team that has an official women’s club and is in the heart of a major metropolitan area would force me to breastfeed in the stands with 73,000 other people or in a tiny bathroom stall. Nursing moms who spend their time and money to see their favorite team should not have to feed their babies lunch and dinner in a bathroom!

What we’re asking for is completely doable, especially in Washington DC. This year Nationals Park, home of the Washington Nationals, was the target of a similar petition. After a lot of pressure from the petition and media, they listened to fans, including parents, and opened a beautiful nursing room complete with comfortable recliners and a TV with a live feed of the game.

If one DC team can listen to its supporters and parents, so can the Redskins because #ParentsChangeTheGame.

Please sign my petition to ask FedEx Field, home of the Washington Redskins, to accommodate nursing mothers in their stadiums and provide a nursing room.
