Breastfeed or pump as often as possible when you are with your baby: It's important to stimulate your breasts to produce milk as frequently as possible in the first few weeks to establish a good milk supply. Breastfeed or pump at least 8-12 times per day, or more often if possible.
Pump during the day while you are at work: If you are returning to work, try to pump at least once during the workday to maintain your milk supply. It's a good idea to pump in the morning and afternoon to mimic the natural feeding pattern of your baby.
Breastfeed or pump when you return home: As soon as you return home, try to breastfeed or pump to signal to your body that it is time to produce more milk.
Pump at night: If you are able to, try to pump once during the night to maintain your milk supply.
It's important to remember that every baby is different and has different feeding needs.
It's a good idea to consult with a lactation consultant or your healthcare provider for personalized advice on pumping and breastfeeding schedules for a working mom.
