Welcome back sister! Grab a notebook and pen -- you don't want to miss my best Secrets, Tips, & Hacks for Pumping, Maintaining Supply, Storing & Transporting Breastmilk while In the Field, Tactical Training Courses, Traveling, or Other Low-Resource Operational Environments.
Whether it's long days at work, nights & weeks or even month away from home due to field training, TDY, deployments, or other military requirements, we can often feel torn from our babies as moms in the military.
Balancing breastfeeding/pumping and duty is incredibly challenging.
Not only is it heartbreaking being away, but it can make us doubt whether it's possible or worth it to continue breastfeeding and pumping for them, even if we deeply desire to.
So today we're continuing the series and I'm diving into my biggest tips & best practices for the unique, often remote situations where you do want to keep it up, so you can keep going strong -- even through everything the military throws your way.
You can do this mama! Let's help you figure out how, and make a plan that works for you, and allows you to feel confident you're giving your all to both your family, and the mission without having to sacrifice this part of your journey.
