Is there a Nursing Station at NAIA?

Photo not related to this post hahaha

Maco and I tagged along with my mother-in-law when she fetched my sister-in-law at NAIA Terminal 3 last June. Ate Joanne was in Singapore for a few weeks for work. We got there a little early than we were supposed to be because there's no traffic. Which was a good thing.

But when we got there, there were no available seat. And most of the people waiting there were sitting on the floor! It's good that we could wait inside with A/C but could they put more seats? Haha! Ang daming gusto! That didn't bother me much though because I thought hey I could just breastfeed my little one and we would be able to sit! And I'm kind of worried that if we wait too long, my little munchkin might be hungry already!

So I asked the guard where the nursing station was. And she said, there's NONE. Yes, there's NONE. WTF. Seriously, even malls have such! I asked her again to clarify I said "Meron ba kayo na pwede mag-breastfeed? Kahit ano'ng room?" (Do you have a nursing station? Even just a closed room?) and this is her best answer "Ay Ma'am wala po. Wala po kaming ganun dito." (Ma'am we don't have nursing station, we don't have that here). SHET. And at the time she said that she was looking at the information table and maybe she was thinking that it would be fine with me to breastfeed there. Good thing she didn't recommend it because I will be pissed. It was not a closed room, it just have a table and a chair with glass wall at the back. I know some moms out there would say, it's fine. But I just don't feel to. If I have a nursing cover why not. But I didn't brought it with me that time because I thought there would be a nursing station there, it's an airport. 

But unfortunately, we don't have a nursing station at our airport. How sad.

Hopefully, in the near future they would be able to add a nursing station in NAIA.
