As part of the Baby Friendly London page (currently in development) – here is some information about feeding, changing, baby facilities at UK airports.
I was emailed a link to a really useful site, “Airport Parking Shop Blog”. They contacted 28 UK and Irish airports during January 2015 and collected responses about facilities at each location. They asked the airports via Twitter:
“Do you have dedicated mother and baby rooms for nursing mums?”
See here for a really helpful chart of each airport and the answers they gave about their facilities.
The page also writes about how they collected the data, the response rates, and more about their survey.
There was varying responses from each airport, so unfortunately there isn’t complete information for all of the 28 airports. But in summary:
London Gatwick said that rooms for feeding and changing are highlighted by signs (either a bottle or “babycare” sign, whatever that is).
London Heathrow said they have dedicated family areas, and more information about family facilities can be found here.
Luton said they don’t have dedicated mother and baby rooms for nursing mothers, but you can contact a member of their passenger services team for help in finding somewhere quiet.
City has changing facilities but no dedicated nursing room.
Stansted has a mother and baby room in the departure lounge.
Information based on research reported by Airport Parking Shop Blog, as of January 2015. Please collect updated information if this seems out of date for you.
