If you are setting up a nursing room at work, you should consider including the following features:
- A breast pump so women don't have to lug around their personal pumps.
- A sink.
- Anti-bacterial wipes.
- A small refrigerator for storing breast milk.
- A microwave for steam-cleaning pump pieces.
Decorations that encourage mothers to relax and pump more breast milk, whether that's personal photos or art work.
Easy access to electrical outlets.
- A lock on the door
Under U.S. law, employers must provide a lactation room for a new mother to use for pumping breast milk. A bathroom isn't suitable for this purpose, because it wouldn't be sanitary to express milk alongside toilets and all the germs they contain. Moreover, the lactation station must be private and shielded from view of other employees or the general public.
Additionally, employers must give breastfeeding mothers appropriate breaks from their work day in order to travel to the lactation room and take the time needed to pump milk. Typically, a new mom returning to work with an infant at home needs to express breast milk two or three times in every eight-hour period of the day. As your baby grows older and begins to eat solid food, you most likely will pump less milk and be able to go longer between pumping sessions.
