Samantha is a healthy 8-month-old girl who lives with her mother, Kathy, her father, and her older sister, who is almost 3 years old. Both parents now work full-time, and both children attend day care full-time. Kathy nursed Samantha exclusively before she returned to work and built up a supply of frozen breast milk.
