  • Working Moms Don't Need Mom Friends: (Momco is a great place to find friends.) 
  • You Can't Continue Breastfeeding: It requires planning, but it’s doable. 
  • You Can Control Your Feelings: It’s OK to be sad to leave Baby and be happy to work. 
  • You Can't Do It All: Allow yourself time to figure out your balance. Prioritizing, not feeling guilty and saying no are keys to balance. 

You can do this!
