Guidelines on Breastfeeding Spaces

Employers commonly ask for practical information and additional detail on the space requirements. We recommend including information on what makes a space adequate for breastfeeding employees; how to calculate an appropriate number of lactation spaces; whether locker rooms, anterooms, or lounge areas connected to a bathroom are in compliance with the law; and other details included in the Request for Information on Break Time for Nursing Mothers (Federal Register 75: 80073-80079) but not the FAQs or Fact Sheet #73.
