Recognizing the time required for breastfeeding, the Act provides for two nursing breaks for every nursing mother until her child is 15 months old. This is in addition to the normal lunch break and other breaks that all workers get. Every woman should defend her right to nursing breaks and see that employers follow the law protecting breastfeeding mothers and children.
A woman may use the nursing breaks to feed her baby or to express milk. Mothers who need a nursing or pumping break after the 15 months would presumably fit it into the pre-existing breaks or take an unpaid break and make up the time accordingly.
