Getting Back to Work

What to do at Workplace?

With some advance planning, it is possible to successfully combine work and breastfeeding.

At Workplace

  • Prepare breastfeeding related products and accessories, such as breastpump, breastmilk collection bottles, Pump & Save bag, microwave bags, mini fridge (if it is not provided at workplace).
  • Look for opportunities to express and store your breastmilk at your workplace, and clothing that facilitates breastfeeding or pumping.
  • Schedule for pumping breastmilk at least twice a day for 20 minutes each session at workplace.
  • Bring a photo or video of your baby with you so you can look at him while you are breastpumping. This will help stimulate your milk ejection reflex.
  • Relax and keep well hydrated.

Pump both breasts simultaneously to save time and try to ensure they are completely emptied of milk before stopping.
