A practical, humorous guide to breastfeeding while employed: “Having such helpful tips and tricks . . . will be a godsend to the back-to-work mom.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) Meet the frenemy of every new mother who works outside the home: the breast pump. This is the first book to give women what they need to know so they can successfully tune out the unhelpful, judgmental comments and self-doubts that spring up during this challenging time. Jessica Shortall shares the nitty-gritty basics of surviving the working world as a breastfeeding mom, offering a road map for negotiating the pumping schedule with colleagues, navigating business travel, and problem-solving when forced to pump in less-than-desirable locales. Drawing on the war stories, hacks, and humor of working moms, and on her own experience from her demanding job and travel in developing countries, she gives women moral support for dealing with the stress and guilt that come with juggling working and breastfeeding. As she tells the reader in her witty, inspiring manifesto: Your worth as a mother is not measured in ounces.
