Pumping at work 😳🤱

Mamas, the thought of returning to work and finding somewhere to pump is giving me anxiety. What was it like for you to return to work and pump? Any tips? What did your co-workers think? Did any of you stop breastfeeding before returning? I want to hear it all, good and bad! I remember reading a story about co-workers mooing at a woman who was putting her breast milk in the fridge...😩😳 (YES TO THE BREASTFEEDING EMOJI BTW!🙌)

We have a few lactation rooms at my job, they are equipped with couches, tables, refrigerator, sink, mirror etc. all you need to have a nice comfy/ private place to pump.

My job created a lactation room for me before I left I can close the blinds and lock the door an has a mini fridge I can put my milk in while I’m there they really support breastfeeding mommies I thought about pumping on my way but not sure how I would do that and I pump every 3 hrs so would need to have a place during the day

In SC each workplace has to have a “mommy area” for breastfeeding. I just used an office with a lock as it was not ready by the time I came back to work. But eventually as a manager I was able to get a nicer room with a glider and all for the other ladies that came after me.

I worked at a dental office and we had a quiet room where kids would get sedated so I’d pump there during lunch and I put a little sign up too. But in between I still had to pump like during work and they have me 15 min breaks and I’d go to my car we had a break room but it wasn’t very private and there was no where else
