Moms Are Leaving Encouraging Post-It Notes In an Airport Pumping Pod, And We're Feeling All the Feelings
Moms can’t be reminded enough that it takes a village to raise little ones, and seeing concrete proof that other parents have their back is invaluable. That’s exactly what a mom of one from Astoria, New York offered up when she posted in a Facebook group called Working Astoria Moms to share photos she snapped at LaGuardia Airport. The images were of tons of Post-It notes left behind by other moms in a Mamava lactation suite.
Stevens herself got the ball rolling for other moms to share their inspirational messages.
Judging from Stevens’ recent photos, that’s an understatement.
Traveling moms using the lactation suite aren’t the only ones who are contributing to the cause. “My colleagues have supported the project by constantly refilling the pods with new note pads and pens for other moms and dads to continue to leave notes for traveling families,” Stevens says. “Having the whole team on board has allowed this to really grow to what it is today.”
Ultimately, Stevens hopes that spreading the love this way serves to encourage moms to be there for one another in a variety of ways.
She points out, “As some of the notes on the wall indicate, if only we could all supported each other in this way in all that we do, we’d all feel a lot better.”
