Pregnant women making plans for baby, mothers on maternity leave, or moms already back at work will discover in this book why many working women find breastfeeding the easiest way to feed their babies. Pryor covers everything a working mother needs to know about: the basics of breastfeeding, including nursing positions, milk supply, and feeding schedules; choosing and using a breast pump; ways to store and transport milk safely; how to get support from co-workers and child-care helpers; how to go on a business trip without having to wean; and much more.

I was looking more for information about how to best juggle this dual role. Read full review
