  1. I plan on going back to work sometime in the next month or so, so this will be a really big help for me then!

    I tried pumping milk before but it was so hard! Since I was already a full time mom, I just decided to breastfeed. But i’m going to have my second baby soon and I might need to actually pump. These are really good practical tips which can help me. thank you so much

  3. This is great for all the breastfeeding mamas. I didn’t supply enough milk so I was unable to breastfeed after 1 month. I was super bummed but totally understood. I’m hoping the 2nd time around I’ll be able to.

  4. Thankfully, I never had to worry about pumping at work. Being a SAHM had that advantage 🙂 However, I did pump some and those steam cleaning bags are lifesavers … I seriously am too lazy for all the work that could go into taking care of the pump parts properly, so cleaning and using those bags helped a lot!

  5. Yay! Congrats for making it work and writing this very informative article!

  6. This was great. I’m still pumping at work at almost 21 months! Never thought I’d be at it this long, that’s for sure. Having a pump that stays at work is a great idea! I hate lugging my pump back and forth every day. It would be so nice to just be able to leave it. Definitely going to keep that in mind the second time around!!

  7. We loved the Medela brand when we were breast feeding. I dried up pretty quickly when I had to pump almost exclusively.

  8. I’m a SAHM so I never had to pump away from home-and when I did pump, it was only to save milk for the few times I’ve been away. But I have used those exact storage bags, and the price difference is such a relief!

  9. I didn’t know that its a law, and companies are now preparing pumping rooms. That’s truly amazing and good to hear! Thankfully I’ve always been able to pump at home, well because I just don’t go anywhere lol. Its nice to see the system starting to support nursing mothers though!

  10. This is a great post! Thank you for taking the time to type all of this up. Baby #2 is due to arrive in early march. I am hoping that I won’t have to go back to work but whether I do or don’t this is very informative. I love the cereal box idea for freezing milk.

  11. This is such a detailed and great post. You have mentioned everything a person ever needs to know about pumping and pumping in office. I liked the pictures . I wish i had read this post while i joined office. i had to travel back home everytime because i couldnt pump in office properly.

  12. This is probably the most helpful pin I’ve ever found on Pinterest! Thank you, thank you for all this helpful advice!
