Mean Girl Mentality of Pumping

Mean Girl Mentality of Pumping 

What is a “Mean Girl”

Ways in which some girls firm cliques, climb the social ladder, and use relational aggression to bully and control others. 

Designed to harm the social relationships and status of an individual and aim to make you look bad to others. 

Types of “Mean Girl” Behavior 

  • Cyber bullying 

  • Gossiping  

  • Harassment 

  • Intimidation 

  • Ostracizing 

  • Verbal insults 

How to deal with it 

  • Project confidence 

  • Recognize what you can control 

  • Stand up for yourself 

  • Continue to work hard 

  • Disengage from the conversation 

  • Report the behavior 

Health ways to cope

  • Exercising 

  • Nature walks 

  • Having a hobby 

  • Journaling 

  • Practicing mindfulness 

  • Volunteering 

  • Finding a new circle of people 


  • Always do what is best for you 

  • Find your voice so you can find your peace 

  • Your journey is yours and may look different than others 

  • Someone else’s unsolicited thoughts about your pumping journey is not your problem 

I know I shouldn’t even have to create a post like this, but unfortunately, mean girls do exist in the lactation space and I hope that this helps you when it comes to coming in contact with them.
