Class: Returning to Work and Breastfeeding
We are launching a brand new class for parents who are returning to work and heading into the pumping-at-work / bottles-for-baby stage! While the day-to-day looks different for every family, there are some great basics, information and tips, and things to keep in mind that apply to everyone. Plus we’ll have lots of time for Q & A. Sign up to reduce your stress, maintain your milk supply, and keep your breastfeeding journey going strong!
Important Note: We think this session will work best for you after you have had your baby and are at least a few weeks into your breastfeeding journey. We do not recommend taking this class prenatally.
Saturday, December 11, 2:00-4:00pm EST, virtually via Zoom
Cost: $40 per family (the breast/chest-feeding parent and partner/support person)
Work and breastfeeding can happen! However, 80% of breastfeeding parents stop breastfeeding within 1 month of returning to work! Don’t become part of this statistic! Knowledge and support are the answer.
As a breastfeeding parent preparing to return to work, you might feel a bit overwhelmed. Let us help you out! Research has shown that mothers who feel knowledgable, comfortable and confident about their return to work plans have the highest success rates. This class will cover:
- When to introduce a bottle, how to bottle feed (paced bottle feeding!!!), keep babies in practice, and how to know how much your baby will need to eat
- Pumping – How often, for how long, what to bring. How to optimize pumping (or hand expression!), and make each pump session as efficient and effective as possible
- Child care – how they can help you preserve your breastfeeding relationship
- And more!
