Breastfeeding: pumping in the workplace

By Elizabeth Allen

When a breastfeeding mom goes back to work, it helps to have a plan. Lactation consultant Kate McLachlan explains a mother's rights under federal law and talks about which employers must accommodate new mothers who want to pump breast milk at work. McLachlan also walks us through questions about nipple confusion, bottles and pacifiers, storage and transportation and how skin-to-skin contact during feeding can help daddies too.

Check out which employers support workplace pumping.
