Returning to work and leaving your breastfeeding baby with a childcare provider is hard enough- and on top of that, how do you know how much milk to send to daycare or to leave with your infant? When you’re exclusively breastfeeding you usually don’t really KNOW how much your baby eats in 24 hours and trying to figure out how much baby needs, how often you need to pump, how much you NEED to pump every day is stressful.
Don’t worry; I’ve got your back (and your front).
My back to work pumping planning sheet for exclusively breastfed babies takes all the guesswork out of making milk for your baby while you’re separated. This PDF uses your answers to calculate how often you need to remove milk while you’re away from baby, how much pumped milk you’ll need to leave for baby every day (and therefore how much milk you need to pump each day), and what your goal for each pump session will be.
This PDF does the work for you by doing the math in the background if you open it in Adobe Acrobat! You can use it over and over as baby grows and your pumping situation changes.
Appropriate for parents who are pumping while working full time, part time, or will be separated from baby for any length of time.
Please Note: The calculations in this PDF are made to work when opened and filled in Adobe Acrobat. Opening and using it in other programs may not allow the calculations to work- you can still use it and do your own math! Also, it’s printable so you can fill it out by hand.
This worksheet is single use only; you cannot give or send it to anyone else, cannot copy it, sell it, or give it away. Yes your spouse can use it. No, your BFF can’t use it.
