Moms often experience fatigue, pain and difficulty breastfeeding during this period, causing many to reduce the frequency of breastfeeding. Howevever, the opposite is true - breastfeeding more often usually helps get rid of the infection, and the baby is still safe while feeding. Mastitis is a serious discomfort, but can be easily treated.
Breast milk is important to a baby's growth and development. When moms cannot breastfeed frequently, due to travel or work, breast pumping is the next best option to providing essential minerals found in breast milk. Handling breast pumps can be just as essential. If breast pump parts are not cared for properly mold and bacteria can build up. And if the parts are not cleaned or sanitized properly your baby can get sick.
Exclusive breastfeeding, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) is encouraged up to 6 months of a baby's life to achieve optimal development. It's also well documented that a regular breastfeeding schedule especially the first two months of feeding help prevent mastitis. Many countries around the world encourage moms to breastfeed because of the health benefits for the child. The rules by every country, however, differ when it comes to public breastfeeding. Moms Pump Here has thousands of locations where moms can nurse or pump around the world but what are the rules when it comes to public breastfeeding? We've listed 10 major countries for you.

Two nursing mothers are suing Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Iowa because they claim the insurance company denied their claims for breastfeeding support from properly trained specialists.
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court, alleges that Wellmark worked around the policy by failing to provide a list of approved professionals in its network who are specialists in breastfeeding care. This oversight, intentional or not, forced many nursing women to pay out-of-pocket for services that should have been covered.
Federal law requires insurers to provide the coverage.
What do you think? Was your breastfeeding support properly covered?
