Your right to breastfeed
Washington State protects women's rights to breastfeed in public places, including parks, buses, stores, and government buildings.
All women should know their breastfeeding rights - especially those headed back to work. Employers are required to provide breastfeeding women with a reasonable break time and a private space (not a bathroom) to express milk during the work day until their child is 1 year old.
