The ideal space would have a refrigerator to store your expressed breast milk until you go home. If this is not possible, then you can either store it in a shared refrigerator elsewhere in the building or, if you prefer, in a cooler with ice packs.
Don't cry over spilt milk
Expressing straight into pre-sterilised pouches means there is no need to decant and less risk of spilling your liquid gold. These are super handy for passing over to your caregiver too.
Your personal expressing timetable
Have a think about when will is best for breast milk expressing at work. You’ll need to express as often as your baby feeds — ideally that’s 2-3 times in the working day. With each session probably taking around 30 minutes, including prep, you might like to think about ways to fit these in. Some mums use authorised breaks, others come in early and stay a little late. Some even take work with them…the ultimate in multi-tasking!
