How to Pump Breast Milk at Work


Hello CloudMamas!

If you are a new mom returning to work after your maternity leave, the prospect of pumping breast milk at the office can be daunting. One of the biggest challenges is figuring out the “how and when” of how to pump breast milk at work. You’ll want privacy, the right breast pumping equipment, and a good amount of storage. That means, getting away from the co-workers, taking those soda cans and old lunches out of the fridge, and finding a few minutes to spare in your busy work schedule! Easier said than done. Keep watching as I walk through everything breastfeeding breast feeding working moms (outside of the home) need to know to successfully pump breast milk at the office away from baby!

    I purchased my pump bra from FSA Store online. This is a great way to use remaining flex spending dollars. They sell the medela pump bras in a variety of sizes.
    Melissa- thanks so much for all of your tips!
