6 Nursing Moms Share Their At-Work Pumping SignsAlice Gomstyn
What’s your style? Something understated, like a simple “privacy please” or something more in-your-face with, say, a picture of a cow?
I’m talking, of course, about the signs nursing mothers use at the office to indicate that no one — save, perhaps, a hungry baby — should be entering the room while they’re pumping.
If you don’t have a sign or are unhappy with your existing one, check out some of these real signs from working moms who really know how to express themselves …
Also, if your sign only says “Ladies” — as in the sign on the door to the restroom where you’re forced to pump — don’t despair. The Affordable Care Act has been requiring companies with more than fifty employees to provide clean, private spaces (that aren’t in bathrooms!) for nursing moms to express milk since 2010. Consider enlightening your boss if he or she isn’t aware of your federal right!
