Nursing my 11 month old
 
Ds is 11 months today and he's currently dream nursing. I can't believe we made it this far! I finally just accepted that he would have to have formula once I started working and it was ok. I pump what I can and nurse him when we are together. He loves his mommy time and snuggles his face between my breasts when he is sleepy and needs to nurse. It had been a struggle but it has been a rewarding one. I don't have plans to wean but the law only covers me pumping at work till 12 months so ill continue as long as I have enough milk to make him happy!

I had no idea!!! I am in Maine too. My employer never allowed me to pump enough. I also had no place to store my milk. I ended up drying up after only 4 months.

I had no idea either until I started working in the HR department of my work. When we revised the handbook, they added that in.

The actual law is:

In accordance to Maine State Law, LD 373, an employer must provide adequate unpaid break time each day (and/or allows the use of paid break time or meal time), for a mother to express breast milk for her nursing child for up to three (3) years following childbirth. An employer must make reasonable efforts to provide a clean and private location, other than a bathroom, for such purposes, and may not discriminate in any way against an employee who chooses to express breast milk in the workplace.
