Mother breastfeeding her baby

Many breastfeeding parents worry about how they will continue to breastfeed when they go back to work or school. The good news is that there are laws to protect you and your right to pump. WIC will also be there to help you through the transition.

Breastfeeding and working

You have a legal right to pump at work. Talk to your employer about making pumping work for you. Learn about your rights here.

  • You are separated from your baby at least 20 hours per week due to work or school.
  • You are fully breastfeeding and plan to continue to fully breastfeeding when you go back to work or school.
