What is your breastfeeding journey worth?
Use our Breastfeeding Calculator to find out how much your breastfeeding journey is actually worth if you were being paid minimum wage in the UK... just for fun of course!
We want to pay homage to the HOURS and HOURS that mothers spend breastfeeding.
On average, one year of breastfeeding equates to a conservative estimate of 1,800 hours time. Let's remember that a 40-hour work week with holiday, comes in at 1,960 hours. Through the cluster feeds, the night feeds, the illness feeds, the comfort feeds and the growth spurts, breastfeeding is a full time job.
Have you ever wondered what your breastfeeding contribution is actually worth? If we were paid for every droplet of milk? Every ounce of pumping? The UK’s national minimum wage for 25+ is £10.42 per hour… add those breastfeeding hours up and suddenly your contribution is extremely valuable.
There’s no doubt that your ‘job’ as a mother is invaluable. You can’t put a price on the role you play. Motherhood in itself is a full-time job, whether you breastfeed or not. It’s an impossible balance if you add a “real job” into the mix too.
