Why pump at work

Remember that your supply will adjust to how much you are feeding or expressing. If you are dropping feeds or pumps because you’re now returning to work, then you are likely to reduce your supply. Pumping at work is an option to keep your supply up enough to feed your baby breast milk.

If you are opting to reduce your supply, try to make your change gradual to allow your body time to adjust, as a sudden drop in feeding or pumping sessions can sometimes risk blocked ducts or mastitis.
