Breastfeeding and Returning to Work

Posted by Daisy Burton on

Breastfeeding and Returning to Work When maternity leave draws to an end breastfeeding moms are facing several quite difficult questions. Some choose to wean their babies before returning to work, others are committed to continuing to breastfeed even after maternity leave is over and some choose a road somewhere in the middle. Regardless of a mom’s ultimate choice, it is of vital importance to weigh up the various options and discuss your possible choices with your family and with your employer well in advance of your re-entry into the workplace.  Possible Options Taking Unpaid Leave: Some women are not ready to...

The Great Nursing Clothes Drought

Posted by Daisy Burton on

Whilst pregnant I decided that I should be proactive and look for some post partum clothes that I would be able to nurse in. I quickly discovered that for some reason, most high street stores do not stock tailor made nursing clothes. The nursing clothes offered are combined with maternity wear which means the majority of breasteeding women are left wearing maternity clothing for a significant amount of time after giving birth.  As most women quickly find out, maternity clothes are not at all flattering on a non-pregnant figure! Of course,  I understand that it might not be cost effective...
