Breastfeeding Friendly Businesses
Why would you need a lactation support in your corporate business?
In this day and age, the businesses who show the most support to their employees
build a relationship for longevity, loyalty and will have employees who will more
likely refer their friends and everyone they know into your business ideals. Did you
know being a breastfeeding supportive business can save you money in the long
run??? Breastfeeding is something that doesn’t just benefit the families directly.
Mother’s and babies who breastfeed, are sick less often, and they in turn use their
insurance and other medical benefits less, and in turn call into work less than those
families who formula feed.
One of the main barriers that women do not breastfeed is because they go back to
work too soon, and often times the companies are not supportive. According to the
Surgeon General “Women often face inflexibility in their work hours and locations
and a lack of privacy for breastfeeding or expressing milk, have no place to store
expressed breast milk, are unable to find child care facilities at or near the
workplace, face fears over job insecurity, and have limited maternity leave benefits.”

● Being supportive isn’t just to be cool anymore, it is the LAW-
There are federal and state laws in Nevada that support breastfeeding families. On a
state level: AB113 was passed in 2017 and it requires businesses to provide proper
support for their employees to pump and if your business does not adhere, there is
potential for large fines and legal action- even through a federal court basis… So
things are getting serious.
