What about public breast pumping? Is that cool with you ladies?

I am having to pump every 2 hours right now and I got to thinking...CRAP! What if I have to be away from home out in public?

Do I just whip out my crazy boob sucker machine and do it? Am I supposed to go hide in a bathroom?

I know a lot of people against public breastfeeding always mention how they will have to explain a baby sucking a womans breast to thier kids....I think someone sitting there with this contraption would probably be a whole lot harder to explain.

I wouldn't mind the sight of it, but depending on where you are it would depend on if it is electric or manual. Some of the electric ones I've used were noisey!

Lol I would go into a bathroom and do it. Most pumps leave you much more exposed that a baby's head, plus it's crazy loud and would definitely draw attention.

Exactly lol. I can discreetly breast feed in public when I need to...pretty hard to discreetly pump.

It wouldn't bother me, unless its one of the really loud ones. You can still put a cover over it, which I'd recommend, a pump shows more than a baby.

You can buy a sport bra and cut a hole to keep the things in place and buy a bigger shirt to hide them in its electric
