Any moms working overnight/third shift?

Any moms out there working overnight? I returned to work this week and I work from 6pm to 6am 3 days a week with 4 days off. My baby girl is exclusively breastfed. Anyone have tips of hacks on how to continue breastfeeding (especially during the day when I'm home and trying to sleep between shifts). I'm pumping while at work.

  • I've been back to work for 7 weeks now. I work 7:30pm to 8am on Friday and Saturday nights. I have to leave for work at 6:15pm and return home at 9am. That basically leaves no time those days for nursing. I just nurse up until time to leave on Friday then pump before I go and three times while I'm at work. Then I'll pump before I go to sleep and when I wake up Saturday, three more times at work Saturday night then one more time before I take a nap on Sunday. When I wake up on Sunday I start nursing again. My son adapts beautifully. He just wants his breastmilk anyway he can get it!
