Tennessee Breastfeeding Laws

Mother Breastfeeding Baby

Tennessee has laws in place to support and protect breastfeeding families. 


The federal Break Time for Nursing Mothers law requires employers covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) to provide basic accommodations for breastfeeding mothers at work. These accommodations include time for women to express milk and a private space that is not a bathroom each time they need to pump.
