Many working moms must return to work before the recommended six months of exclusive breastfeeding have passed. If this is you, there are a few things you can do to make this transition easier. Since pumping will become an integral part of your life, be sure to get comfortable using your pump. Also, be sure to communicate with your employer; don’t be afraid to ask for a private place to pump at work or to make any other needs known. Consider starting back on a Friday to see how things go.
