BF and Working???

Hi all...

So I started working again yesterday, it was hard not only leaving Thalia home but I'd slept 4 hours the previous night. Question: my employer has been really kind to me and facilitated my pumping at work (he was going to give me the owner's office to do so but I declined) I thought it was illegal for companies to prohibit pumping and actually had to make it easy on the working mother to do so... is this not so? I was looking online for the quidelines as far as time (how long each session can be) and number of times (how often) I'm taking about 20 minutes twice a day out of my work day to do so, the third time I do during my lunch break. Is this exessive?? What have other working bf moms done??

Thanks!!

I get 2/15 minute breaks. I usually come back a few minutes late cuz the session should be 15 mins. I thinks if a company has more than 50 employees they have to supply breastfeeding mothers adequate space and time. The time you are spending seems great. You just want to pump at least every 3 hrs if you can. I get a lunch but that's my time IYKWIM
