And don’t be shy about it; it’s your right to express your milk at work! As part of the Department of Labour’s Code of Good Practice on Pregnancy, mothers are legally entitled to two 30-minute expressing breaks for the first six months of a baby’s life.
Many breastfeeding moms will, however, need to pump at least every three hours to avoid leaks or even mastitis, according to Kim Jurgens, a lactation consultant with La Leche League International, a voluntary organisation providing support and information for breastfeeding moms. This should be discussed with your boss before you return to work so you can make a plan to get a third or fourth break to express if needed.
Also discuss where you will express, advises Kim. If your workplace doesn’t have a designated room for expressing mothers, you can request a small, clean, private room with a chair and perhaps a table be made available, because the staff toilet is really not the ideal place to pump. Lastly, check with your employer where you can store your expressed milk – a fridge is ideal.
