MINNEAPOLIS – In an effort to create a family-friendly environment on game day, the Vikings announced on Tuesday that they will install lactation suites at their temporary home, TCF Bank Stadium, as well as in the new stadium set to open next season.

The Vikings say two Mamava suites for nursing mothers will be fully operational by the time the team hosts the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 18.

The Vikings also plan to have the pods in the new U.S. Bank Stadium.

Each 4-foot by 8-foot unit is private and mobile. They are furnished with benches and an electrical outlet for plugging in breast pumps.
