Anyway, I spoke with my boss, and he said it's probably just a 'knee-jerk' initial reaction...cause it's not something that is done often... But he said, you do what you have to do...don't worry about others...
So, I will continue with my pumping!!!!!
|But he said, you do what you have to do...don't worry about others...|
|They even tried to set up some inner-office betting about who would pump more, me or another lactating coworker. One would sneak into the break room and check the levels on our bottles. At least they weren't freaked out by the idea!!|
|I wanted to tell others that at least some states (notibly CA) REQUIRE employers to provide a private space, with a lock, that is not a bathroom, and adequate break time to pump. Its too bad that you can't take advantage of such a requirement, but I wanted to provide information to "lurkers" out there.|

I'm glad you're doing what you need to do. Bummer your employer doesn't offer a more private place, though. I used to pump in my van with curtains to get away from my coworkers sometimes. They had the opposite problem -- they all wanted to make jokes about it, ask for milk for their coffee, etc. They even tried to set up some inner-office betting about who would pump more, me or another lactating coworker. One would sneak into the break room and check the levels on our bottles. At least they weren't freaked out by the idea!!
