Employer's Perspective:
Breastfeeding provides natural immunity to the infant, which minimizes illnesses. This is reflected in the less absenteeism by the mother due to a sick child. Employee satisfaction increases because the employer is seen as supportive to the employee for both family and work.

Employee's Reaction:
Encourages new Mom's to breastfeed their newborn and be happier at work and in the community.
