7. Breast Pump Wipes
I had no concerns using the office kitchen sink to wash my pump parts in, although it did make for some slightly uncomfortable encounters when someone stumbles upon your washing up session to grab their third cup of morning joe. If the idea of having your boob juice contraption on display freaks you out, not to worry, Medela has thought of it all; Breast Pump Wipes. Whether you use these to avoid the busy sink or just keep them on hand when your rushing to a meeting they are a lifesaver for pumping at work. I only wish I knew about them when I went back to work!
8. Hands-Free Pumping Bra
I didn’t have a hands-free pumping bra, but I regret it now for every second I spent holding onto my pumps. I originally thought I would feel more like a dairy cow with that contraption strapped to my chest, which is crazy as I’m pumping milk either way, but now I see the amazing convenience of it. I did become pretty good at the one handed pump support so I could continue to scroll my phone or type on the computer, however it would have been a lot easier to have both hands free.
9. Car Adapter
Some people feel like pumping while driving is just, weird. I was one of those people an d during my long commute back and forth to work everyday I often thought about how much time I would save by pumping and while driving. The car adapter is actually not for use while driving, because that’s SO dangerous! It’s made for those times when you just can’t or won’t pump in a traditional setting like your office. This would be especially necessary item if your job has you out of the road a lot of your day or you just need a nice private space for you to pump away from your work colleagues who constantly knock on your closed office door.
