    Question Going Back to Work.....

    Hello,

    I hope you guys have some advise I go back to Work on Monday and my DD is 10 weeks old and not taking the bottle from DH. She likes to play when its feeding time. Any suggestions? I don't feed her with the bottle DH does and I try not to be in the same room but sometimes it's hard. Also, my work does not have anywhere for me to pump with the exception of a bathroom that locks What do I do Should I email my HR department and ask them how they are going to accomodate my BFing?

    As always thanks for the help!

    You can definitely talk to your HR dept about helping find you a clean location to pump in. Mothers use empty offices, empty conference rooms, storage rooms, lounges, or anywhere else they can find that has an electrical outlet and a lock on the door. Some mothers have chosen to purchase a car adapter for their pump and pump in their car instead. They hang blankets/towels over the windows, and put up a sun shield in the windshield.

    There are other ways to feed baby, besides a bottle. For tips on bottle feeding, and alternatives: http://www.lalecheleague.org/FAQ/bottle.html
