What are the benefits to employers?

Many employers do not realize that breastfeeding can save money. Employer benefits for supporting breastfeeding employees include:

  • Breastfeeding employees miss work less often because breastfed infants are healthier.
  • Breastfeeding lowers health care costs.
  • Breastfeeding support helps employers keep their best employees so that less money is spent hiring and training new employees.
  • Breastfeeding employees who are supported in the workplace report higher productivity and loyalty.
  • Supporting breastfeeding employees creates a positive public image.
