"My husband and I needed the extra income so like it or not I had to go back to work."
More education in breastfeeding, breastpump and how to maintain breastmilk supply after going back to work.
There’s no specific factor really. Though right now I’m still breastfeeding and also give my baby formula in case I don’t produce enough breastmilk. I believe having him to have breastmilk is important when possible to help with his immune system, however, formula is also convenient when we’re out of the house or when I’m out in a meeting for too long and my husband can feed him too.
About 7 weeks, I feel like it’s not enough especially when I feel like I still want to be close with my baby. But economically thinking, my husband and I needed the extra income so like it or not I had to go back to work.
I’m still trying to balance it myself, but I think it’s never too late or early to start figuring out if you’d like to make the schedule for your lil one or work around their schedule.
The schedule was my biggest concern. With recently having a newborn, all I want to do is just to cuddle with him, but I know I also need to get back on my foot so that I’ll be able to stay sane and be able to balance my life, work, baby, and… romance 😉
