Once again Amazon.com amazes me! Here’s another case of something looking or sounding totally ridiculous but actually turning out to be something you absolutely must have as a new mom. Hands-free breastpumping bras weren’t around when I was nursing. Without a laptop or smartphone that I absolutely couldn’t put down it wasn’t too much of a problem for me to spend my 30 minutes in the lactation room with one hand free flipping through a Working Mother magazine from 1983 while the other hand held the containers.
But today, you absolutely have to be doing SOMETHING if you’re going to be sitting still for 30 minutes! Texting, iPadding, Xbox Kinecting… That’s where these hands-free breastpumping bras come in. As goofy as the pictures look, they illustrate what you could be doing while you’re pumping.
I actually think that I should do a caption contest for this photo. Here are my first two entries:
- Working from home is great. As long as you have Skype you can video conference, make dinner and pump at the same time!
- Just enough cream to make the Alfredo sauce!
My lame attempt at humor is just to mask that I’m really jealous that this wasn’t available eight years ago after my son was born. Oh, technology. Read my other post on “First Visit to the Lactation Room” to hear how that all went down back in the day.
So what did the real moms who’ve used this contraption say? The 650+ reviwers on Amazon.com gave it 4.5 out of 5 stars! That said, go immediately to Amazon.com and order this amazing product. Then keep us posted on all the amazing things you were able to do while you were pumping hands-free.
