I talked to my boss the other day & he has a few projects I can work on from home! This means I'll get to stay home until at least October sometime, probably longer. I'm so glad I'll get to be with Ethan & Avery a bit longer then I expected. When I do go back, I'll be starting at a new job site. I've been stressing over being able to pump at the new site. The site I was at when Ethan was born had a pumping room, but I won't know about the new office until I actually start. No more 50 mile commute each way!

that's great, 50 minutes each way sounds like way too much when you've got 2 wonderful kiddos waiting for you! I hope they do have a pumping situation for you, they really do need to.

Yeah, it was pretty awful. I live in the DC Metro area & we have terrible traffic, so that 50 miles was about 90 mins each way. Luckily my boss is a great guy & has been working really hard to find me a job site closer to home. My job sites are always government buildings & usually military, so the pumping station is a 50/50 shot. Sometimes less because as a female in my field... I'm definitely in the minority. The office I was in when Ethan was born had about 50 people & only 5 women. The contract we're waiting to hear about would be less than 10 miles from home, so fingers crossed it comes through!

I wonder what DC's law is though....maybe because it's not in an actual state there isn't one?

I thought there was a federal bill passed recently that required work sites to provide a private place to pump (other than a bathroom). That will apply to D.C. Let me see if I can find it.

"Well, that lady is now guaranteed the right to use a breast pump at work, the result of the health care bill passed by Congress last month. Section 4207 of the bill amends the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 to include the guarantee of 'a reasonable break time for an employee to express breast milk for her nursing child for 1 year after the child’s birth each time such employee has need to express the milk,' for nonexempt hourly workers, and also the stipulation that this be done in 'a place, other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from co-workers and the public.'"
