Our September Newsletter is out and is all about breastfeeding and working

Over the past month, I have received many emails and phone calls from real milkmakers moms and the same topic keeps coming up – going back to work away from Baby. Everyone shares the same emotions and questions about this major transition. How can I continue to breastfeed? Will I be able to pump enough? How will I fit pumping into my jam-packed day? Where will I pump and how will that work exactly? I am right there with you (my son is six months old) and appreciate how challenging, and rewarding, returning to work can be. Fortunately, good support systems, information, and resources can help you reduce the stress. Support could be finding a Lactation Consultant to help you design a personalized going-back-to-work plan; talking with other moms that can share their experiences; or finding other women at your workplace that have also pumped at work. This issue of the newsletter is all about breastfeeding-and-working. We have tips for breastfeeding while working from our Lactation Consultant, Renee; an interview with nursing-wear designer and Lactavist, Holli Harris; and our Real Mom Story is from an OB/GYN who struggled with many of these same issues.Happy Nursing!emilyfounder, milkmakers
