    JSMom - I wish you were my boss. My workplace is completely unsupportive of new moms nursing or not. I have to try to find a place to pump - sometimes having to resort to my car and then getting harrassed because I took the time out. My boss acts like you are betraying him by having children. To hear about supportive environments is like dreaming I am on a secluded beach. My best to all the bosses who do what they can to encourage a supportive atmosphere. The world needs more people like you.

I've personally spent alot of time and energy (and > $1K in funds from my operating budget) getting a new secure, safe, clean, comfortable lactation room put in to our building so that she and several other new moms have a reliable private place to pump. jsmom

    that's so nice! I am so lucky my boss let's me work from home part of the week along with pumping at work. Althoguh, I think the idea of pumping makes him feel awkward... but that makes me laugh.
