Since I’ve been back at work, I’ve been having to pump 3-5 times a day to keep our supply up at home for Blake to feed Ben. That takes a chunk out of my day, causing me to have to work on my days off to make up for the time I took to be a milk machine.
So I bought a pump bra. >
So strange, I know! Jenna and I saw these at Target and joked about how strange they are. But I figure it’ll allow me to go into a corner room at the office and pump while typing or doing other work. Or doing stuff at home. I thought it’d allow me to pump while driving but Blake was categorically against that for some reason (although the author of the website I bought it off of reported pumping during her commute!)…
It’s due to arrive in the next couple of days. We’ll see how it goes.
**Update: I received the bra. When I tried it on, it had slits cut out on the nips, and had padding behind it. The slits showed through clothes! I tried to wear it and a normal nursing bra over it, for both concealment and extra support. When I tried to put the pump horns in the bra, they got all stuck and then didn’t work right. I ended up in the parking lot at work for 45 minutes tangled in two bras with pump horns stuck to me. Oh it was a mess. I’m in the process of trying to send the bra back. At least I tried.
