Boobing Hours Calculator

What is your breastfeeding journey worth?

We know it's priceless but what if we were forced to put an actual value on it ...

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 growth spurts it 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 £8.72 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 are breastfeeding or not. It’s an impossible balance if you add a “real job” into the mix too.
