Breastfeeding mom going back to work?Just because you’re returning to work doesn’t mean you have to stop breastfeeding. Talk to your employer before you return. Say you need a clean, private place to express your milk. And when you do go back to work, block time out in your calendar so you’re not stressed or too busy to do it.
Choosing the right daycare To help ease any working mom daycare guilt, do your research and make sure you’re happy with the childcare you have in place.
