A day as a working mom


Let's start from midnight. 

12-1am: Breastfeed baby for 15-20 minutes. Sleep. 

2-3am: Breastfeed baby for 15-20 minutes. Sleep. 

4-5am: Breastfeed baby for 15-20 minutes. Change his diaper. Carry him around the house for a while. 

5-6am: If I'm lucky, baby sleeps. If not, I'll put him on the bed and let him babble away while I pat his back. 

6-7am: Breastfeed baby if he wakes up. If not, I'll continue to sleep. 

7-8am: Talk to baby a while, might need breastfeeding if he wants it. Take a really quick shower. Gobble down my breakfast of oats, milk, cereal, and biscuits. 

8-9am: Prepare baby's warm bath water. Wipe him down. Change his diaper. Dress him up. Talk to him a while. Breastfeed him for 10 minutes until he's somewhat drowsy. 

9-10am: Put baby in car seat. Drive to babysitter's house. Depending on traffic condition, journey takes 35-40 minutes. If the day is hot with sun shining brightly into the backseat, baby will wail and I can't do anything but continue to try pacifying him with my voice while driving in the bloody jam.

10-11am: Work.

11am: Pumping time! Total yield from both breasts is approximately 2oz (50-70ml) only at the moment. Sigh.

11:30-1:30pm: Work, then lunch.

1:30pm: Pumping time! Total yield from both breasts is approximately 2oz (50-70ml) only at the moment. Sigh.

2-3:30pm: Work.

3:30pm: Pumping time! Total yield from both breasts is approximately 2oz (50-70ml) only at the moment. Sigh.

3:30-5pm: Work.

5pm: Fetch baby from babysitter.

6-8pm: Reach home. Watch TV while breastfeeding baby. Play with him a while when he's full.

8-10pm: A combination of playing, breastfeeding, and talking to him while trying to put him to sleep. His dad will carry him around for further play time.

10pm-12am: Sleep time for me! Must sleep before the next cycle starts again. :)

  1. Don't think you need to worry too much about your EBM output, usually its around 1.5-2oz per session according to kellymom.

    More important to get enough sleep, drink enough water and relax. The rest will come naturally :).
