Expressing/Pumping and Storing Your Breastmilk

Sometimes you may need to express and store breastmilk to feed your baby for different reasons:

  • If your baby is not able to breastfeed.
  • If your breasts are too full.
  • If you need to give your baby extra breastmilk.
  • If you are going to be away from your baby.

Thawed milk may taste or smell different from fresh breastmilk. It can also look slightly blue, yellow or brown, depending on what you have eaten.

Public Health Nurses are available to provide support and information, and to answer any questions you may have about feeding your growing child. To speak to a Public Health Nurse call the Family HEALTHlineat 705-743-1000.
