Take advantage of your company's flexible work arrangement policy
Find a community in which you can relate to
Increase production before coming to work
Use the bottle
Choose an appropriate breast pump
Don't get a used pump
Additionally, breast pump motors become less efficient over time. A secondhand pump may not provide adequate stimulation to maintain milk supply.
Prepare the milk before coming to work
Plan your pumping schedule
If your office doesn't come with a nursing room, ask if you can have a private room for your pumping. It is important that you are comfortable.
Properly store milk
Pump according to your baby's intake
Your baby’s nutritional needs are unique, so take note of his feeding cues.
