When Breast-Feeding Moms Return to Work

Start slowly

(HealthDayNews) -- When breast-feeding moms return to work, they should do so gradually, says the Baylor College of Medicine.

By initially taking one day off a week, your body will get used to being back at work. Too much too soon and you're likely to see your milk supply decrease because of the stress of working full time and caring for your child when you get home.

To help keep your milk flowing, nurse more often in the evenings and on weekends. It's also a good idea to have a supply of frozen breast milk on hand.
