Happy World Breastfeeding Week! Many mothers who have or are breastfeeding find they have quite a bit in common. When you add work to the equation, it can be a recipe for potentially awkward and memorable moments. Here are a few of them in all their GIF-glory.
When you’re late for work with just 5 minutes to breastfeed your baby
When your partner packed your pump bag before you even had to ask
When you’re out and frantically looking for a place to pump
When a stranger glares at you for breastfeeding your child in public so you respond
When you find out your job offers more than six months of maternity leave
But then learn nearly 60% of women workers worldwide do not benefit from legal protections like maternity leave.
When you find out your office has an empty pump room
AND IT’s CLEAN
When someone mistakes your milk in the office fridge for coffee creamer
When you finally make it home and all the effort was obviously worth it 🙂
