What If I Am Returning to Work or School?

Continue to express or pump while you are away from your baby.  This will help to keep up your breastmilk supply.

If you are collecting your breastmilk, carry the milk in a cooler bag with an ice pack.

If you return home and your baby has just been fed, you can breastfeed again or you may need to pump your breasts for comfort.

Your employer must provide extra time at work for pumping, according to Canada's Human Rights Code.
