Here's the sad truth:
Our breast pumps are just NOT as effective as our babies when it comes to draining the breast. When you're going back to work, you really need to make sure you're able to maximize your output for your baby. And that is where hand expression comes in.
Which means sometimes we need a little hands on help. Hand expression is one of those tools you'll want to know how to do, and how to do well, to save you on a rainy day, or get that last precious ounce of milk after a pump session.
Hand expression is simple, but for some can be tricky before you get the hang of it. But don't worry... I'm going to guide you through it.
Working and pumping makes you feel over the top burned out! Am I right?
Dragging baby to day care. Pumping. Working. Working. Pumping. Coming home to make dinner. Nursing. Pumping. Nursing. Bed time routing.
When do you get time for you??? If you're not practicing regular self care, you will crash and burn, momma!
In this podcast episode we are talking all about realistic, unselfish ways to add self care into your every day. We are going to help you recharge, regroup, and fill your cup so you can keep going like the superwoman you are!!!
Are you confused by the Break Time Law for Nursing Moms?? Most of the moms in the Successful Breastfeeding Community were!
And it's not surprising. The law is wordy, confusing, and full of loop holes and exemptions.
On this episode of the Successful Breastfeeding Podcast I am interviewing Tifani Sadek, a corporate attorney who previously was in private practice for small businesses. She will be answering our questions about the Break Time Law for Nursing Moms. Tifani is not only an attorney, but also a working and pumping mom and member of our Successful Breastfeeding Community!
