ICN lounges: any restriction with infants

For the first time in my life, I will be traveling with our infant daughter (10 months old), with all the preparation that I am entirely not familiar with. One of the things I'd like to learn is how friendly are airport lounges with infants? Will there be clear exclusion, or maybe just frown upon? Frankly, I've enjoyed airport lounges before, but now more than ever, a non-crowded space, with clean/non-crowded restrooms, will feel like heaven-sent. Any of the Priority Pass allowed lounges you would recommend for this purpose?

No, Koreans bring their babies in all the time. You'll be fine.

I've never experienced an airport lounge that didn't have some kids with their parents. Don't worry about it, just enjoy your time and the peace and quiet. Koreans are kid-friendly, as are most people.

Thanks for the info! Would you recommend the bigger size lounge out of the one listed on the priority pass page? I do understand the transit gate will pretty much control where we can go, but just want to do my leg work ahead of time.

Concourse A: Asiana, Kal, Skyhub
Main terminal: Asiana, Martina, Skyhub

Ah, I will be flying just before that date, so which terminal will it be? I tried to look at the email they sent, but that was left empty.

I don't really know how the transition will take place. I'm sure you'll find out when you get there.
