As a working mom of an almost 9-month-old daughter, I am interested in knowing about the breastfeeding experiences of full-time, part-time, and stay-at-home moms. There is much research that suggests that returning to work influences breastfeeding. I've experienced this myself, as I sometimes struggle to find time to pump during the day and have even forgotten pump parts at home more times than I can count!

I am a PhD student at New York University conducting a survey to compare barriers, duration, and attitudes of breastfeeding based on working status. The results of this survey will contribute to a growing field of research to raise awareness about breastfeeding in the workplace.

The survey is anonymous and completely confidential. It should take about 10 minutes or less to complete.

I appreciate your participation, and I am interested in any comments you have about the topic as well! Thank you!

Tyra, you are far from the norm. As a nurse I had access to a deluxe pumping lounge; this was for staff as well as new moms and moms of babies still in the hospital. Many moms struggle to establish a supply let alone make enough to pump and store. God love you for your milk supply and your child was blessed for sure!

before i gave birth i was already lactating as early as 4 months . and when i gave birth it pours out ! :) and then 2 months after i gave birth i started working again , and i've been doing breastfeed for almost 7 months while working . i don't think that working will affect you breastfeeding routine , just stay healthy eat the right and healthy foods and your milk will be as good as it is for your baby . I'm working for Graveyard shift that time lack of sleeping but still .. a have a healthy baby girl ! :)

i just don't smoke and drink beer during breastfeeding..

Always remember , what you take within your body will be absorb by the baby .
Stay healthy !
