Breastfeeding is very essential to newly born babies because the mother’s milk has all the nutrients needed for growth and development. Working mums are very busy during the day with their careers thus it is important for them to have some tips of managing and balancing the two. You need to be flexible, committed and connected to your infant in all ways. Most companies nowadays have nursing rooms with window toppers for nursing mums to breastfeed their young ones whom they bring along to work. If your company does not have such a plan, you can pump your milk before you leave for work. This should be a good amount to last the baby throughout the day when you are away as babies need to be fed frequently every thirty minutes. The breast milk can also be made available in the freezer. Whatever your plan and decisions are, remember that your baby’s life and health is more important.
If I had one big frustration as a mom, it was my failure to breastfeed my two kids for as long as possible. I breastfed my children for only a couple of months before and a few weeks after I returned to work. I know I can’t put the blame on anyone else not even my former job for my failure to breastfeed longer. I wasn’t good at time management and (maybe) I lack will power to do it.
A lot of ordinary and celebrity moms have been successful in breastfeeding their children. I admire them for being able to manage their time in expressing (pumping) and storing breastmilk at home and even while at their work place.
I know the benefits of breastfeeding to the growth and well-being of a child just like prenatal one multivitamin and similar vitamin to a pregnant woman. But for me nothing beats Malunggay leaves as supplement for expecting moms because of its high calcium benefit. Studies have shown that calcium found in Malunggay leaves is four times the calcium found in milk.
I have pregnant friends whom I can share this bit of information. I may not be an expert on breastfeeding or nutrition, but I can be an advocate of anything good as breastfeeding.
