  • The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires most employers to provide reasonable break time and a private place for nursing mothers to express breast milk during the workday, for one year after the child’s birth.
  • Pediatrics reported a study that concluded the U.S. could save $13 billion a year and prevent 900 infant deaths if 90% of U.S. families would breastfeed exclusively for 6 months (2010).
  • According to the U.S. Breastfeeding Committee, a $3 return is realized for every $1 invested in workplace breastfeeding programs (2010).
