I mentioned earlier this week that I’ll be going back to work next month, and I’ve been getting ready for all the pumping that I’ll be doing when that happens. I’ve taken my own advice and purchased extra pumping equipment – shields, valves, connectors, etc. – as well as a hands-free pumping bra from my lactation consultant, Ellen Steinberg. The company that makes these bras also has a handy back-to-work checklist (I hadn’t thought to leave an extra nursing bra and clean shirt at work, although when I read the tip, I thought, “Doh!”).
