Breastfeeding and working

Breastfeeding breaks during working hours

Do you need to return to work but still wish to continue breastfeeding your baby? Speak openly with your employer about this as early as possible. He/she will appreciate it.

Legal right

From the legal side, it is interesting to know that in Germany you are entitled to breastfeeding breaks! The German Maternity Protection Act lays down that breastfeeding mothers are permitted to have extra breaks. You can also take advantage of this even if your baby is not with you at work. It is best to breastfeed shortly before and after work, so that only one meal in between needs to be given.

Use a quiet room

Don’t be afraid to ask if you may use a quiet room at your workplace in order to breastfeed or pump your milk there. Your colleagues will most certainly also support you in this new situation. In this way, you can manage to re-enter working life and still breastfeed your baby for a while longer.

Making milk supplies available

During work, you can pump your milk so that you have it “on stock”. Take a small cooling box with you in which you can store and transport the milk that has been pumped or expressed by hand.

Warm compresses and a light breast massage help the milk to start flowing. Sometimes it is enough just to imagine your baby sucking at your breast to make the milk flow more easily.
