Anyone out there struggling with EBF and climbing the corporate ladder? I work FT as a corporate department manager and still BF my 20 mth old. I feel I am about AP as a working mom can be (we EBF, family bed, every minute outside of work is spent with my family). My entire career, I have been on the fast track and always looked for opportunities to advance. I had my DS over 4 years ago but only BF him for a couple of weeks (BF was extremely difficulty and I still feel guilt about not trying to work through it longer) so I was able to continue on my career path with DH support. Now that I have DD who is still nursing at 20 mths (I will let her wean on her own), I have found that since her birth I have not been as career oriented. But by nature, I am very competitive and feel like I am holding myself back by not being as aggressive as I once was in my career. I also know my limitations and that I want to spend as much time with my family as I possibly can. I know she will not BF forever, in a year or so I could be back on track with my career but how do I let go of my career ambitions until then? I think this is the classic case of wanting it all right now. Funny thing is, I would stay home FT if I could, but DH is self-employed so we need the benefits and my income. Not necessarily looking for an answer here, but rather if anyone else is going/gone through this. I don't personally know anyone who has even BF for as long as I am doing now, let alone worked EBF and worked FT so I am feeling a little like an anomaly.
