Traveling as a nursing mother is a unique challenge. That's why Hard Rock Hotel Chicago has developed the Nursing Mothers Amenity Program to better meet the unique needs of guests who are breastfeeding or 'pumping' while traveling.
Proceeds from these in-room amenities benefit local families of children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago through the Jackson Chance Foundation, an Illinois non-profit dedicated to providing support to NICU families, allowing them to spend more time with their baby. The program costs just $30.
