    What if you don't have anyone to look after your child, breastfeeding or not? I don't think they could make you unless they provided a crèche on site.

    Any who, I've been called up about 5 times and never gone (once was at uni had assessments etc, once on prac, once when I was on mat leave and breastfeeding/had no care for baby, the rest of the times my employer wouldn't release me) I'd actually like to do it one day!

    You can then do it later when you are no longer breastfeeding. (In WA anyway) they changed the rules a couple of years ago and many of the reasons that previously were allowable no longer are allowed as too many people were not doing jury duty.

    Now they say if you have a reason like breastfeeding, you can only defer and nominate a time when you CAN do it. You cannot defer a second time, you must do it then.
    If your situation hasn't changed they can remove you on the second round. I just did this!
