Nursing & Pumping

Public·155 members

Hi everyone! Just wanted to share that one of my biggest challenges in my breastfeeding journey is pumping at work! I'm an engineer and surrounded by men at work, I work at different sites (substations) everyday and so when the time comes (I try not to go past 2/3hrs each pump) I have to go find a spot to sit and pump (I use my wearable Youha Gen 2 pump at work & my spectra S1 at home).

We don't have fridges at site, so I bring along my coolbag & milk storage bags.


I find the cleaning/sanitizing part hard; I usually wipe down with wet wipes first that is made for wiping pacifiers & then rinse off with boiling water that I also brought from home & then further wipe it dry. It takes me 20mins to pump & 20mins for me to clean my pump parts. I do feel guilty that I have to have time out during work to do this. Just wondering if this is a good cleaning method, or should I do more: like use a ceres wash basin? Attached is a pic of my cleaning station that I set up, i'm lucky if i can find a surface to even place my pumps down on :')


I'm a ftm btw (3mths) :)
