This is important because sometimes a mom isn't able to work in a place with 50 or more employees. Everyone knows how important breast milk is to a child. We are working on getting more moms to breastfeed, but yet some moms have to return to work and they aren't able to get pumping breaks...which can cause a breastfeeding mom to have to give formula while at work..and we all know that that can end the breastfeeding relationship between mom and baby. If more moms were guaranteed pumping breaks, I can guarantee that more moms would choose to breastfeed!

To:
US DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
allow pumping breaks to ALL nursing moms

Sincerely,

      I personally receive pumping breaks and couldn't imagine not having them. We all know breast milk is best!

      I'm a nursing mom and even though I work at a place with 50 or more people, its still hard to pump at work. If I'm having a hard time, I can't even imagine how moms feel working at a place with less then 50 employees. They should get the right too and I'm always for raising awareness!

      Because mothers milk is healthiest for a baby & if a mom is willing to go through the hassle- then by GOD we should help her. Mom's milk helps prevent early obseity- a MAJOR health issue.

      I'm fortunate enough to be able to stay home with my baby, but many women aren't so lucky. I think they shouldn't have to formula feed just because they have to go back to work, and everyone deserves to be able to feed their baby with their milk if they want to.

      Without this change, only privileged mothers are able to continue breastfeeding at work. This would help equalize the class disparity in breastfeeding rates.
