Breastfeeding and working options

Breastfeeding and working options:

  • Baby with you for feeding:
    • You work from home (breastfeed when the baby needs it)
    • You work outside your home:
      • You take the baby with you to work (you may want somewhere private to breastfeed)
      • Your baby is with a caregiver:
        • You go to the baby to breastfeed (you’ll need transport and regular breaks)
        • A caregiver brings the baby to you to breastfeed (you may want somewhere private for this)
        • Your baby is at a childcare centre at or near your workplace – you breastfeed there (you’ll need regular breaks)
  • Someone else feeds your baby with your expressed breast milk:
    • Your baby is at a childcare centre (you may need breaks to express milk at work)
    • Your baby is with a caregiver – family member or nanny (you may need breaks to express milk at work)
