Breastfeeding – good for babies, parents and business.
When it comes to infant feeding, many of us may have heard that “breast is best”. With current infant formula shortages, more parents are exclusively breastfeeding their babies for at least six months. For many new families, breastfeeding and returning to work can be difficult. Vermont’s breastfeeding laws provide protection for women who breastfeed in public and support when they return to work. Federal health care reform introduced break time requirements so women can express breast milk at work.
