Breastfeeding Your Baby while you workWritten by Janice Wee
I breastfed both my babies even though I had a demanding full time job. It is possible, but it requires a lot of effort. Determination. Willpower. And of course, a good breast pump.
I started breastfeeding my babies from birth. I was lucky. The hospital where I bore my first baby had a breastfeeding consultant. With her advice and support, I was able to overcome most of initial problems with breastfeeding. Things like engorgement, a few days after baby is born which leaves you with painful, rock hard breasts full of milk that wouldn't come out. Baby would suck but not be able to extract milk and cry in hunger. Mom is left in pain and frustration. For that, hot towels, as hot as you can take, applied as compresses on painful breasts as you massage breasts for 15 minutes to soften it before offering baby his meal.
Once you and baby are finally happily settled in a breast feeding routine, for most of us working moms, it is time to go back to work. The hours of separation would mean end of breastfeeding as milk dries up.
A lactating mom's breast produces milk according to baby's needs. The more baby drinks, more you produce. Likewise, once baby stops drinking you soon stop producing milk. To prevent that from happening, every 4 hours, you have to express out milk.
