With so many of my friends and breastfeeding support group mamas going back to work by the end of the year, I thought I would do a round-up of my favorite Going Back to Work articles (written by me, as well as some of my colleagues.)
In my previous post, we talked about some of the reasons why nursing a toddler can be a helpful transition for you and your little one.

Today, on the San Diego Breastfeeding Center blog, I'm honored to share Fakiha Khan's memoir about her battle with Insufficient Glandular Tissue. If you would like to submit your story as well, please email me at email@example.com. Thank you so much, Fakiha, for sharing your story with us! It's stories like yours that make me want to be the best mom I can be!
As I rested with my son, Ryan, tonight, I told him the story of the day he was born, exactly 6 years ago. How he entered this world so peacefully and beautifully and how grateful I am that he is my son.

There are no words to fully describe the way I love this little guy and his birth was just the beginning.
As many of you know, I birthed a new baby this past July. No, not a real human baby, but a growing, evolving, bundle of joy podcast, called The Boob Group. Over the last 5 months, this new addition to my ‘family’ has truly begun to blossom and come into her own. And, since many of you haven’t had the privilege of meeting her yet, I thought I would take the opportunity to introduce her to you!
