Another reason why you should breastfeed....you can defer Jury Duty until your baby is 12 months old (at least in the State of MD). I received my summons yesterday, called the Disability number--no I don't think breastfeeding is a disability, but it told people who are disabled to call if they would need reasonable accommodations. I thought I should receive similar accommodations such as a private room, time to pump, etc. When I mentioned my needs and why I needed them, I was told no need to appear on my summons day. I just need to fax in the birth certificate and I can't be summoned until sometime next April.
