Being a mum isn’t an easy job, let’s not kid ourselves. It’s no fun dealing with a screaming baby in the supermarket and dirty nappies stink, there’s no way of getting around it. It’s a job that we love, but sometimes… don’t always love. And as with the case of any job, mums also need a break or some secret “me-time.”
The length of time you should breastfeed your baby remains a hot and controversial topic. Everyone has a different opinion to voice and no matter what choices mums make, there are always plenty of comments and advice to listen to.
When you take a walk in the park or downtown you can see a whole range of colorful baby carriages, everything from light organic folding strollers to chunky double buggies. Subways and public buildings are increasingly open to parents with baby transporters. But historically, taking the baby with you on a trip outside the home is a fairly recent development.
