They think I got lunch all the time...

it is funny, I pump at work... (actually I should be working right now...) I have an old Medela double pump that comes in a blue case that looks just like a cooler lunch box... so my male co-workers have been asking me all the time if I just go to lunch again when I get back from the pumping breack.

My team leader/suppervisor, HRs and some other ladies that also pumped when their kids were babies know.. but, should I explain them what I do and all that stuff?

Tell them flat out. "I'm pumping milk for my son." End of discussion.

I had one of those HUGE blue boxes from borrowing the pump from WIC.  People always asked what it was.

I would be honest, I would tell my coworkers I am breastfeeding my baby so I need to pump often, the blue thing is my pump.

yes it is like that... I haven't known it was from WIC.. my cousing gift it to me.... ha-ha... I know WIC program but I'm not from States.. I know she was on the Army/Navy/Marine one of them... I though she had gotten it from them...

This. They will likely never ask again. Men aren't too interested in women coworkers pumping breastmilk lol.

Not sure why you wouldn't just say you're pumping.
