Right now I am looking for a new job. How and when should I bring up thefact that I will need a place to pump on my breaks? I will wait until I actually have a job offer, but should I bring it right away or wait until my first day or what? No one has nad any problem with my pumping at my current job and I expect it shouldn't be a big deal any where else either, but it's still kind of akward to bring it up. Anyone have any experience or any suggestions?

You live in Minnesota and there is a state law that says :Minn. Stat. § 181.939 (1998) requires employers to provide daily unpaid break time for a mother to express breast milk for her infant child. Employers are also required to make a reasonable effort to provide a private location, other than a toilet stall, in close proximity to the workplace for this activity. (SB 2751)
So given the state law... I wouldnt say anything to your employer. When you start they have to comply with the state laws. Good luck and congrats in the new job!
