Returning to work and continuing to breastfeed

I am considering returning to work in a job that requires occasional evening work (as I recall it used to be 1 evening each week).

However, I still breastfeed DS2 in the morning and evening; so although working in the day is not a problem - as he has milk from a cup, the evening feed is a big part of his bedtime routine which I do not want to give up just yet.

Where would I stand with an employer on this? Would I be able to opt of the evening work or would I be obliged to do it as it is mentioned in the job spec?

this has a good section on breastfeeding. Might be worth giving the Working Families Helpline a ring? - 0800 013 0313.

Thanks Betsy, that leaflet is really useful.
