Breastfeeding workers

According to the Maternity Protection Convention (No. 103) of 1952, and its accompanying Recommendation (No. 95), the breastfeeding worker should be entitled to half an hour's break twice a day to nurse her child. She should have the right to interrupt her work for this purpose, and these interruptions should be counted as working hours and paid accordingly.

Nursing breaks ought to be extended to a total of at least one-and-a-half hours during the working day, with adjustments permitted on the basis of a medical certificate. Nursing and day-care facilities, meeting adequate standards for equipment, hygiene and staff, should be established.
