Baby feeding is one of the most important aspects of early development for a child, though it is a topic whose importance is continually debated, especially in the context of women in the workplace. Women have always worked and breastfed. But, in light of the continual presence of more and more women in the workforce, it becomes highly important to consider how and when to breastfeed at work.

Do they need to Inform our HR Manager about baby feeding?
Legally, you are entitled to breastfeed at work, usually in prescribed breaks for the duration of the first 12-15 months of the baby’s life. While they are not required to talk to our HR manager, it is good that you do so and create a plan. They don’t be afraid to talk to our HR manager because most companies will be incredibly supportive of the need for a mother to breastfeed at work. If they are afraid to talk to a male HR manager about breastfeeding at work, or if it makes you uncomfortable, they should request to talk a female HR manager.
They easily can (and should) work together with their colleagues to create a more collaborative environment that is at once both helpful and accommodating to mothers. Women need privacy and time to express milk, and they should not be afraid to stand up for your rights to get what they need. In most cases, everyone involved benefits, including your business. There are health benefits to both babies and mothers, but there are also business benefits such as lower turnover, less absenteeism among female employees, improved productivity and morale, and even lower medical insurance claims.
How we have prepared baby feeding system at work?
We have already taken proactive steps, including contacting to the employer before they return to work and letting them know that she will need to express milk two to three times per day upon returning to work. It is good to consider what policies are in place, as well as what the institutional and legal context is for breastfeeding is at your work and in your jurisdiction.
Before returning to work, they should also create a plan with the caregiver to determine when and how to feed her baby while at work. This is included stocking up on breast milk before they get back to work, introducing the baby to the bottle before they go back to work, and getting ready for how to use the equipment regularly.
By most studies and accounts, the vast majority of women find breastfeeding at work somewhat difficult, for a variety of reasons. But, we have solved with the help our medical specialists. These reasons can range from finding time in the workday to talking about and feeling comfortable about it in the presence of other employees to physically expressing the breast milk itself in the midst of a busy workday. But we already told them that it is important to make a commitment. Juggling working and having a child is not easy. Upon returning to their job, we have considered the difficulties and make a plan for them.

If you have any questions, you should seek out local and national legislation, and understand what you are entitled to in your workplace.
