This is one of the best post-pregnancy books I have found. This is such an important topic and it's presented in a way that informs without sounding preachy. ( )

This was a great overview of all the issues a breastfeeding, working mother will need to prepare for. And it actually had a good bit of information that would be useful even to non-breastfeeding mothers (child care options, flexible work schedules) or mothers who stay at home (breastfeeding basics, taking care of your baby and yourself in the fourth trimester).

Mothers who combine breastfeeding with working will find this an immensely helpful and reassuring book. The author includes practical information on planning for and returning to employment; clear, concise tips on breastfeeding; pumping, storing, and transporting milk; and possible alternatives to full-time employment such as job sharing, working from home, and staying home full-time. The book suggests numerous ways mothers can build and maintain closeness with their babies in spite of separation.

A helpful and reassuring book for mothers who have decided to combine breastfeeding with working outside the home. Mothers who are undecided about breastfeeding may well be swayed by the powerful case Pryor makes for the advantages of breastfeeding. The book features clear, concise tips on breastfeeding, pumping, storing and transporting milk, enlisting support, and making the transition back to employment. Throughout the book the author emphasizes the importance of developing mothering instincts and attachment-style parenting, issues which are even more important for mothers who will be away from their babies for extended periods of time. The reader should consult LLLI resources for our most current recommendations on human milk storage, starting solids, and treatment for sore nipples.
