Hi, Moms - Winema here again, looking for responses in the next few days to publish in New Beginnings "Making it Work" column. You can answer here or send me a private message. By the way, the responses I've gotten since I began posting here have been so great and I even included a blurb about the forum in the last column bc you've all been so helpful! Thank you!
Here is the new Mom's question:
“My son is 14 months old (still actively nursing) and I have enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom to him, but my husband has recently been laid off from his job and it is clear that our best option is for me to return to my previous job as soon as possible. I’m so glad that I have this option, of course, but I don’t know much about nursing and working, so I’d love to hear what I should be prepared for with a toddler, and also, I’m going to have to be away to host training weekends once per month. How do I handle being away from my son for 2 nights and 3 full days? I really want to continue nursing!”
