PUMPING AND RETURNING TO WORK

Nervous about going back to work?

Here are some tips to help you prepare:

WHAT TO WEAR

  • Tank top that can be easily pulled up
  • Nursing bra
  • Clothes than can easily hide milk stains

WHAT TO PACK

  • Pump
  • Flanges, valves, and bottles with lids or breast milk bags
  • Ice pack and a cooler (for transporting or if you don't have access to a fridge)
  • Pen and masking tape (to label your milk)
  • Snacks and water (pumping makes you thirsty and hungry)
  • Something that smells like your baby, or a photo of him (to help with letdown)
  • Extra tank top
  • Extra shirt
  • Pumping bra
  • Swaddle blanket or nursing cover (if your pumping location isn't private)
  • Breast pads
  • Nipple cream

MILK STORAGE

  • Four hours at room temperature (up to 77°F)
  • 24 hours in a cooler with an ice pack
  • Four days in the fridge (39°F)

BEFORE RETURNING TO WORK

  • Discuss your return with your employer
  • Schedule your pumping sessions
  • Create a relaxation playlist

You've got this, Mama!
