I just came back from maternity leave. I'm trying to pump and bf because baby is at daycare 1 day a week with daddy weekends, and grandma 1day a week. Weekends and the day with grandma I have 12-1 off which I go home/gmas an feed baby and pump.
BUT Fridays I work 8-5pm.
I asked work if I could use the staff bedroom and pump(its a femal home too). Boss said yes. Today is my first day doing so. It takes me all of 5min to pump.
I had to pump around 10am because she had work(which I go with her to) from 11-1:30. I pumped again at 3:50 after we got back from shopping.
Here's the issue, both times she got up and took things. This is a problem for a few reasons. 1 she isn't supposed to walk around with out one of us holding in to her gait belt, she uses a walker but still pin balls off the walls. 2 it's what she took and went and hid.
First time it was money, granted it was hers, but it was money being saved for her trip tomorrow, dinner money. She took it then lied when I asked where it went, she then wanted to spend it but then gets angry later when she does not have money for food.
Second time it was food. She's on a fairly strict diet as she is diabetic. She took food into her room and ate it knowing that we have to document everything she eats, and I had JUST given her a snack before going in the staff room.
On top of this the program got her a job....in a confession stand. So she spent her entire shift(2hrs) sitting in her walker refusing to do things that required walking and saying she was hungry, then proceeded to eat a huge nacho and a pop.
I'm supposed to redirect but that one is impossible. We get talked to about this all the time though how we need to do more redirection but that they are adults and can do as they please.
I'm afraid if I tell my boss that she is doing stuff like this while I pump that they won't let me anymore. There is no law in wa state to protect me and although I'm supposed to get a lunch hour she is a 24hr client and they already say "oh you can just go sit outside or in the staff room.
Idk I'm kind of done with this job, I applied as a bank teller already because its the only job higher paying entry level that I can find. Hopefully that comes through.
