Breast Pumps

Pardon The Expression

For many nursing moms, returning to work after a cozy maternity leave can bring on major angst: How will I ever fit pumping into my already hectic workday? What if my baby won't take a bottle? Aren't breast pumps too complicated to deal with? The emotional transition from round-the-clock breastfeeding and bonding to pumping 9-to-5 can be tough, but with a little planning and this back-to-work primer, you'll be prepared to tackle the logistics of continued breastfeeding--and your baby will reap the rewards for years to come.

Pumping in the Real World

What if you have an all-day meeting? What if you can't find time to pump? Having a plan in place to deal with some common roadblocks will help you ease through your workday as a breastfeeding mom.

What if ...
You have an off-site meeting?

Do some preliminary investigation. Does the meeting locale have spare conference rooms? Are there hotels or department stores in the area that may have a comfortable ladies lounge? If not, find an empty bathroom stall.
