Top 10 Breastfeeding Tips for Working Moms

Top 10 Breastfeeding Tips for Working Moms

Being a mom and breastfeeding is a very important job and hard work for both new and experienced moms. You are providing vital nutrients to your precious bundles of joy. Add in a full-time job, and it sometimes seems a bit overwhelming. As a fellow working mom and someone who breastfeed her two boys, you can be successful and here are ten breastfeeding tips for working moms to help:

  1. Get lots of rest– You’ll be tempted to try to do too much as the overachiever you probably are.
  2. Drink lots of water & eat right – Put a big sports bottle of water and ice at your desk and finish it by lunch then another by the time you leave work. Break away from your desk to eat a healthy lunch.
  3. Schedule pumping time on your calendar – Make an appointment with your breast pump. If it’s not on your calendar people will think you are free and schedule you.
  4. Network – Whether it be from a good friend, parenting website, breastfeeding group, or lactation consultant, if you need help ask. They can give tons of suggestions you’d never think of on your own.
  5. Get Comfortable – Whether it’s while nursing your baby or pumping, you need to find spot where both you and your baby can be comfortable. Scout out a private location at work where you can pump. Put a sign on the door to keep others out, so you can pump without being interrupted if needed.
  6. Ask about Flex Time and Alternative Work Schedules – If you don’t ask, your work will not offer it. Maybe you can go back to work part-time initially or work new hours that would better align with your babies’ feeding schedule. Ask about telecommuting if it’s available and would work for your job.
  7. Try to Find A Daycare Close to Work – You could pop over quick “lunch” for baby.
  8. Get the Right Tools – Don’t skimp on a breast pump. This will be a huge part of your life and you need one that is comfortable and can do the job. Buy a good one or rent one. Get a good nursing pillow, nursing bra and breast support pillow to help make your life easier.
  9. Don’t Give Up - Stress from juggling work and family, can cause you to quit before you would like to. Don’t give up, you can do this!!!
  10. Relax, be flexible, AND ENJOY – Make breastfeeding a personal experience and adapt as you need. What works for one may not work for another. Just find your nursing groove and relax because you are providing your baby a precious gift. Enjoy the experience of snuggling with your baby as you feed him.

Happy Breastfeeding!!!!
