There was something about making the transition from maternity leave to work, and trying to pump in my office (complete with non-locking door!), that turned me from a productive pumper to a breastfeeding quitter.

I wish I'd been able to make a better go of breastfeeding and working. That seems to be a common anthem among moms, so I was curious to hear from women who were able to make it happen.

From tips to make pumping less of a pain to advice on keeping up milk supply, these totally doable ideas can help any working mom who wants to keep the breast milk flowing.
