Army releases servicewide breastfeeding policy

Army releases servicewide breastfeeding policy

Breastfeeding soldiers will be provided with a designated "private space with locking capabilities, an electrical outlet and access to a safe water source." That space will not be a bathroom stall; if it's located in a restroom, it must be a "fully enclosed, separate area." Soldiers will be responsible for providing their own pump and storage materials. Breastfeeding soldiers remain eligible for field training and other exercises, but must be given "private space ... to express milk" during such activities. All soldiers returning to duty who desire to breastfeed should inform their chain of command as soon as possible to allow for support plans.
