If you are setting up a nursing room at work, you should consider including the following features:

- 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.
Breast milk provides optimal nutrition for babies. It has the right amount of nutrients, is easily digested and readily available. However, the rate of breastfeeding is as low as 30% in some groups of women. While some women are unable to breastfeed, others simply choose not to. More and more women are becoming aware of the benefits of breastfeeding and American businesses, airlines, rail and bus transportation companies, schools and offices are meeting the demand for lactation rooms and breastfeeding sanitary facilities. Studies show breastfeeding has major health benefits, for both the mother and her baby.
