Breastfeeding has enormous benefits for both mothers and newborns, but women in Lebanon are finding it increasingly difficult to find a balance between nourishing their babies and keeping up with their professional lives.Arbid also stressed that serious work is being done to implement Law 47, which seeks to regulate the baby food products market.Rana Najjar, a journalist who breastfed her now 1-year-old baby, recalled some of the difficulties she faced during the first months of her baby's life."It was difficult for me to pump milk," Najjar said. A breast pump allows mothers to fill a bottle with their own milk. "When at work the only place I can pump milk is in the bathroom and I was afraid to because there could be viruses there," Najjar said. She lamented how little support society gives breastfeeding women and the lack of facilities in place to permit a new mother to pump breast milk with ease.
