Let’s talk about something that a lot of new moms have to go through — breastfeeding and pumping. While many moms opt for formula, the ones who don’t find themselves physically becoming their baby’s primary source of nutrition. As the food supply, your schedule is whatever the baby’s schedule is. And waking up at 3 a.m. for a couple of months is all part of it. It can be exhausting. If you’re in a situation where you’re the only mom in your group, you can also feel quite isolated.
That’s why it’s so important for moms to support each other. Too many times there are situations where moms try to bring each other down based on their own insecurities. There’s no right way to parent — and being supportive of others, even if you don’t necessarily agree with their opinions on screen time and appropriate snacks, will make everyone’s life a lot easier.
Being a mom in the office is even more difficult since it combines your personal and work lives in a way that may be uncomfortable. That’s why this particular project, showcased by Audrey Gelman, is so inspiring. Created by women from all over the world, it’s quite inspirational and the perfect pat on the back that every mother needs to hear.
