New mom and first generation breastfeeder Jen didn't grow up with breastfeeding moms, instead she was raised making formula bottles for her littler sisters. When Jen found out she was pregnant, she made the decision to breastfeed mostly because it will save her money (although she does did understand the health benefits for both her and her daughter). She will be returning to work a month after baby arrives and her husband will be taking charge in caring for their daughter.
Jennifer has a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Brigham Young University. She now works as a television anchor and reporter in Texas, where she lives with her husband of five years, their new baby girl and their dog Snoop. In 2008 she started the blog "Baby Makin(g) Machine"before having a baby or even trying for one, so she deemed herself as the machine that hadn't been switched "on" yet. September 2009 she decided to make it official, and flip the switch. Then in October, she found out she was pregnant.
Jennifer also blogged about her pre-conception journey for Conceive Online and her pregnancy adventures for Parenting.com's Project Pregnancy.
