Are you comfortable with the idea of breastfeeding in public? Do you think it’s a totally natural thing, as Jingjing does? Or are you, like Yajun, someone who feels that breasts are too private to expose in public, no matter the purpose? What would you do if you and your child were out, and he or she needed to be fed?
Many Chinese mothers face this kind of situation every day, and for working mothers, the situation gets even trickier when you factor in business trips.
Today Grace Zhang, a communications expert for a well-known investment bank and mother of a two-year-old, shares her story with us through the lens of breastfeeding, and discusses her experience of juggling raising a baby with excelling in a highly demanding job.
