Hi ladies- I'm very newly pregnant and have also been offered a possible new position at my office. I'm currently in a 6 week trial period to see how it all goes and see if everyone thinks we are a good fit for the other.
I have some concerns about how my pregnancy would go in this department and how long I'll be able to be out on maternity leave for because of how busy they are.
I also just thought about something this morning and that was after baby is here and me wanting to continue to breastfeed or use breast milk as much as possible.
I know you can freeze breastmilk but I also know that the environment has to be just right for you to continue to produce enough breastmilk when you get back to work. I also know that when you are just feeding at home you maybe won't necessarily be able to just produces super excessive amounts of breast milk to freeze.
So I'm in a pickle. One of my new mom friends says she barely gets anything now that she is pumping and working full time when she pumps at work and her little one is 4 months old now.
I know she also said in an ideal world she'd like to have about 30 minutes for a pumping break at work and i know that getting 2 30 minute breaks in my day is going to be near impossible.
Any thoughts or suggestions or your real life stories are much appreciated!!!
