Breastfeeding is best for your baby’s overall health and well-being. New research provides the strongest link yet between breastfeeding and reducing the risk of SIDS, but make sure to pay close attention to safe feeding and sleeping practices and be aware of the hidden dangers of falling asleep with your baby in an adult bed, sofa, chair or other unsafe place.
Many mothers who work outside the home find that breast pumps are an ideal way to express and save your milk so that your baby will not need to be supplemented with formula. There are many makes and models and most are very portable, making it easy to pump at work.

A supportive bra is great when you're breastfeeding. A supportive environment is even better.
