7 Ways to Survive Going Back To Work

The day is fast approaching when you and your breastfeeding baby will have to part ways, at least for a few hours each day. Whether your baby is 6 weeks, 12 weeks or 6 months, there are some ways to make the transition be a less stressed one.

The First Night Home

Everything was just great in the hospital! Your little bundle of joy was so well behaved. Sitting all comfy, swaddled expertly by the nurse peacefully in the bassinet. How on earth did that nurse do that? Well...It really isn’t fair. They have it easy, your baby was well behaved because he was “stunned” from being born. You can only imagine what that journey is like! Just about the time she is waking up - BAM - you’re all alone your first night home at 3 am with a screaming, hungry baby. We have all been there. You can survive, I promise you.
