Establish a feeding routine: Try to establish a feeding routine before you return to work. This can help you establish a good milk supply and ensure that your baby is getting enough to eat.
Express milk: If you will be away from your baby during the workday, you can express milk using a breast pump. You can store the expressed milk in a refrigerator or freezer for later use.
Coordinate with your employer: Talk to your employer about your breastfeeding plans and any accommodations that may be necessary, such as breaks for pumping or a private space to pump.
Bring your baby to work: If possible, consider bringing your baby to work with you or having someone bring them to you for feeding breaks.
Plan ahead: Have a plan in place for how you will feed your baby while at work. This may involve bringing pumped milk with you, coordinating with a caregiver to feed your baby, or finding a private place to breastfeed during your breaks.
Remember, breastfeeding while returning to work can be challenging, but it is possible with some planning and preparation.
Don't hesitate to reach out to a lactation consultant or your healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns.
