managing breastfeeding and working
We all know that breastfeeding is very important for our babies. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months, but...what if you have to return to work?
I know some employers provide a lactation room with a comfortable chair and a fridge as mine did. But I hated pumping breast milk- I always got milk on my cloths. There were days when I wounder if it all worth it. I missed connection with my baby, and I wanted to breastfeed my baby, not a breast pump.
I switched to part-time job because I wanted to spend more time with my son. I also considered working from home, but couldn't find any jobs.
How do/did you manage breastfeeding and working?
