The Unique Challenges of Breastfeeding in the Military

As we all know, being a new mom is tough. There are no two ways about it. Trying to figure out how to care for a newborn or multiple babies while staying sane, semi-clean, and at least slightly human is something almost all of us have had to grapple with.  But for a certain very special group of women, trying to figure out the nuances of motherhood has its own unique set of challenges. So my question for today is: How do you balance the active-duty of being a new mom when you’re literally on active duty?Today we’ll take a walk in the shoes of one woman who can tell us exactly what it’s like to care for a newborn when you’re in the military.  Join us and our special guest, Krystal Wallace,  an former active duty and current Reservist with the U.S. Coast Guard, and the Assistant Education Director for Mom 2 Mom Global, a worldwide network of breastfeeding support and advocacy resources for military families. We look forward to having you join us!
