Medela Is This Week’s Sponsor
This week’s Art of Fatherhood podcast is being brought to you by Medela. Dads, when it comes to helping your partner or spouse with breastfeeding, only cleaning the baby bottles just won’t cut it. You need to do more. Ask your spouse what you can do to help with her transition when she goes back to work. At work if you are running a team or looking to be an advocate, talk to your team and HR department about how your office can offer support for breastfeeding employees. In addition, with the infant formula crisis, new guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics, a receding global health pandemic and a spike in inflation are all placing increasing pressure on new parents returning to work who need substantive support to continue breastfeeding.
The normalize breastfeeding drum keeps beating. Cultural acceptance is here to stay. Thankfully Medela is leading that drum beat with their Kin program. Kin is a customizable, single-source solution from Medela and Mamava that opens up a world of best-in-class technology, resources, and accessories specifically designed for new and expecting parents. Employees get the support they need to successfully balance their career with breastfeeding and a growing family. Medela is doing their part, now it is up to us. Learn more at medela.us/kin.
