Men could be given 'breastfeeding hour' away from work

Men could be given 'breastfeeding hour' away from work

Following 'period leave' in the UK, a new bill to allow 'breastfeeding hour' is in the works in Israel, meaning men may soon be able to take advantage of their baby’s feeding schedule. 

The health committee of Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, backed a bill earlier this week that will allow both parents to leave work for the period of one hour a day for four months, after the end of maternity leave.
