Welcome Back to the Millennial+Married blog
Today’s post is about how I have been able to maintain my milk supply since returning to work.
It has been two months since my return back to work. Baby Zay is primarily breastfed so it is important that I meet his nutritional needs. Here’s a short list of how I have been keeping my supply up:
Our son’s Pediatric Office has a LC on staff that I receive support from. The office bills us to ensure our insurance will cover it (cool little loop hole) without us having to pay out of pocket.
Breast pumps are great because you are able to release once your breast become engorged. I pump eight times per day because any less, in my experience, will make your supply decline.
It’s important to stay hydrated or else your body will not produce much milk.
Converse With Other Moms
I embrace the advice given to me from other moms. It’s great to have a support system that you can share valuable information with.
