Okay, I know I need a pump and all the parts and some bottles. I have stashed a few pictures of Mandy and my handsfree pumping bra (or will when I'm done with it.) What am I forgetting?

Thanks!

bring a medela microwave bag! i store my horns in there between pumping sessions - just throw the bag in the fridge. that way you don't have to wash/sterilize between sessions, just once when you get home.

you might also want to bring tissues to wipe the condensation from the parts between pumpings. i used an empty office at work, and we couldn't leave anything in the room.

GL! let us know how it goes!

I have some burp cloths to wipe my boob off after, and i put it on my lap while pumping, just in case. I also have some extra breast pads in case I forgot them or something. In the early days I had some lansinoh cream in there as well. I pump into bottles, but have bags in case i have extra and for the first time the other day, I had to use a bag after I filled the bottle

great tips girls.

also pack some snacks and some drinks. in case you dont have time to eat or drink, then you got something to nibble on while you pump.
and maybe a magazine to read.

good luck for tomorrow, i will be thinking of you!

I keep a sharpie in mine too just in case I dont have a pen handy ( and so I dont use my yucky work pen while Im handling milk) so that I can write the date and amount on my bags

When I pump at school I bring the horns, tubing, bottles and a cap (or two caps if you pump into bottles and think you'll get more than a bottle full), the electrical cord for the wall (its easy to forget this! ), a nursing cover just in case, a freezer pack in the insulated part to keep the milk cool, and some Medela quick clean wipes. I also like the snack/water idea! I usually eat my lunch while I'm pumping. I also have my laptop or a magazine so that I don't have to just stare blankly into space. Good luck! I know it will go smoothly for you

I always bring a book also. I have read over 25 books this year just on my pumping breaks alone.

The other ladies suggestions are exactly what I have in my bag.

How did your first day go? Let us know!
