Foxboro, MA (WPRI) — One mother is petitioning the New England Patriots to do some renovating.

Kara Sassone has started a petition on to consider adding a family-friendly space where parents can care for their children.

Similar spaces have been installed at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, Ohio and Nationals Park, in Washington, D.C.

And earlier this summer, Fenway Park added a nursing pod.

Sassone said it is time for the NFL to get in the game. “When you have a situation where you have a young child who is nursing or a mom who wants to go out and have a night for herself and not be able to pump, nurse, change it makes it really difficult,” Sassone explained.

So far, the petition has 422 supporters.
