Breast milk plays an important role in a baby’s brain development and disease prevention. Indonesian government regulations require mothers to breastfeed their babies for at least the first six months of its life. There is however, a general lack of proper breastfeeding facilities in public nursery rooms . Stiffness and pain in the back, neck, legs, and arms of breastfeeding mothers is commonly found due to poorly ergonomically designed facilities. Therefore, it is necessary to design a facility for breastfeeding mothers such as an ergonomic chair. The research for the design of such a chair started with the collection of anthropometric data to determine suitable chair dimensions, and then the application of the Quality Function Deployment (QFD) method to identify priority features that should be put into the design. The final designs had adjustable armrests, a sliding footrest, a baby support cushion, a headrest, and an adjustable backrest.
