    Hello! I love this post! However, would you mind sharing how you pumped up the extra 60 oz of milk before going back to work? I am stuck on this part because I don’t know when I should try pumping the extra milk. I hope this comment makes sense! Thank you.

    Great post. And go you for doing 12hr shifts with your little ones being so young. I work in a busy vet clinic and find eating and drinking enough the biggest challenges.

  3. This is a great post. I know lots of mama’s that have to work and pump. Thanks for sharing with us at Family Joy Blog Link Up Party!

  4. I remember pumping back in the early 80’s!! What a nightmare! I love this post and you go girl!! Thanks for sharing with us at Throwback Thursday! I peeked in earlier, but didn’t get a chance to comment before now! Have a great weekend!

    love this! going back to work as an exclusive pumper was one of my biggest worries but being prepared with things like these was KEY! (plus having alllll the snacks stashed in my pump bag came in handy ;))

    Such helpful information, thank you! I’ve been coming up with a mental game plan for pumping when I return to work and this post provided great tips for me 🙂

    How did you incorporate your pumping with breastfeeding to save the 60 oz?

    All of this! I think it’s worth noting that fenugreek can make some babies super fussy. I took some supplements when I tried to up my supply before going back to work and all of the sudden my chill and sleep-happy baby was the fussiest ever and I thought *what am I doing differently the last 3 days?* and it dawned on me that the only thing I did differently was take a milk supply booster. As soon as I stopped and it was out of my system, he went back to normal. And after Googling, sure enough, other mamas had the same experience. I guess it can make them gassy? So – just a heads up.

    this is a great post. ive been researching some tips on how to pump at work. I am an ER nurse as well and returning to work in a month. Ive started building a freezer stash and I’m sort of becoming obsessed over it growing. LOL. I’m quite nervous about having to pump every 3-4 hrs. in such a crazy environment but if some women have done it, I’m sure ill be ok! Thank you!
