Quoting MusherMaggie: It will be much easier than having to buy formula, mix it correctly and wash bottles. Some of the most successful breastfeeding moms work full-time. Nights are made much easier when co-sleeping. A baby sling or wrap is a must.
Congrats on #4! I'm sorry you're going through a divorce at this time and hope you'll have the help you need.
You will certainly be busy no matter what feeding option you choose, but nursing your babe will provide that great immunity at the start ~ and help your body recover. Depending on when you have to return to work, it'll keep you bonded for mornings and evenings, or however you need to adjust. I used to joke that it was the one time I could actually sit down during my day and relax. =) Your other kids will be a lot of help as you recover. Take good care, friend.
YEP you can do it momma!!!
Yep. Indeed, the most successful nursing moms I've known, in terms of going one year and beyond, were NOT SAHM. They were working outside the home, usually full time, sometimes full time plus extra.
