In this chapter, you’ll find information on how to breastfeed, express milk, use a breast pump and wean your infant. Information on breast milk, how it is produced and how to get milk production off to a good start can be found under Mother’s milk.

If you have COVID-19 and you wish to breastfeed, call Info-Santé (8-1-1) or consult a health professional for information on the precautions you should take.


Express: Pump or squeeze milk from the mother’s breast.
