Balancing work and the desire to continue breastfeeding can be a challenge. If you live in a state that has pro-breastfeeding laws in place and requires employers make allowances and provide support for nursing moms, consider yourself lucky.
The two most important things to determine when pumping at your work place – the Where and the When.
- Get on a schedule and pump before your breasts get full. Try to pump the same number of times you have been breastfeeding at home. This is typically every 2-3 hours for babies under six months and 3-4 hours for those older than six months.
- Do you best to utilize breaks and your lunch hour to accommodate your pumping. Be sure to speak with your employer ahead of time, so expectations are set up front.
- If you have a double-sided electric pump, the time away should take around 20-30 minutes including set-up and clean up.
- Hopefully, there is already a designated space for breastfeeding mothers — not the bathroom. If there is no pre-appointed spot, look for somewhere both private and comfortable.
- Make sure the space you use has a door that locks. As a last resort, hang out a sign alerting your coworkers.
- Have a conversation with either your boss or HR to hammer out the details so there are no misunderstandings.
We recommended you have the following 5 items on hand:
- Your breast pump and accessories – a double-electric breast pump works best
- An anti-bacterial soap and 2 soft cloths for washing and drying
- A cooler with ice packs for milk storage, if there is no refrigerator available in your office
- Comfort items such as a photo of baby and water to hydrate
- Breast pads in case of leakage

Milk Nursingwear’s Roll-tab printed nursing and maternity tunic is a fashionable, comfortable knit top that does not look like a nursing top at all! The printed fabric easily hides leaks, stains, and spills – helpful for any nursing mama. The flexible roll tab allows for long sleeves or to just below the elbow. To breastfeed, simply move aside front placket to access openings in the attached underpanel. For a day out, we’ve paired it with a wide cuff jean, a wedge bootie, a down vest, blanket scarf and crossbody bag.
Our Tulip hem nursing dress is the perfect nursing dress for special occasions, work, and evenings out. Nurse or pump easily by lifting up the empire layer to access openings on either side. Shown here with a cropped jacket, suede slingback heel, and a matching handbag. Don’t forget to accessorize to complete your look.
