Returning to work



Successful breastfeeding when you return to work can be achieved in a number of ways:

  1. Your baby’s carer brings your baby to your work for feed times;
  2. You organise your baby’s child care close to work so you can visit them at feed times;
  3. You leave enough expressed breast milk with the baby’s carer. Feed your baby just before you leave, and as soon as you get back. While you are at work you will need to express milk during the day to make up for the expressed milk feeds your baby is getting in care. Store the milkappropriately for future use, ideally for the following days feed.
  4. Your baby comes to work with you (small offices or self employed people may be able to achieve this)
