Q:

Hi..... Can you guide me on when shall I start expressing Breast milk for my 2 month baby as I will join back my job in coming 4 months ( when my baby will be around 6 months) , so that 5he amount expressed will be sufficient for her ..



Sonali Shivlani pl advise

Babies at six months would start one solid feed. If you will be away from home for a fixed period of time plan how many breast feeds your little one will need. Plan to give the solid meal also at the time that you are not at home. Accordingly you can start expressing around four and a half months and keep aside one or two bags of milk in the freezer. This will help you to stock pile your milk for when you return to work.

Thanks Sonali Shivlani for the advice
