BREASTFEEDING FOR WORKING MOTHERS: Planning, Preparing, and Pumping!

2.Preparing at home for your return - establishing a breastfeeding routine, practicing pumping, and introducing baby and caregiver to bottle feeding
3.Returning to work - time saving strategies for mornings, pumping tips, and breastmilk handling and storage guidelines
In less than 20 minutes viewers learn:
* how to succeed with breastfeeding in a variety of work environments
