"Pump without the Frump!™"

We adopted our first daughter at 3 days old and we could not have been happier. At this same time, some friends of ours were between houses and staying with us while preparing for the equally long awaited birth of their first child.
When Amy's baby was born, I was amazed at how much time and energy was devoted to breastfeeding. While I simply opened up a can of formula to make a bottle, she would spend an hour trying to ensure he was getting adequate nutrition. She would then rest, only to repeat the process an hour later. She was exhausted and could quite literally do nothing else. I was tired too but able to hand my baby over to my sweet hubby with a bottle while I caught a nap.
With pumping she could now allow her husband to feed the baby or go out for a little while, but the pumping process was still time intensive and she still could do nothing else while she was pumping.

What she would not have given to have known about
This is a terrific hands-free pumping support for the busy nursing mom. The brand new PumpEase™ enables busy Moms to keep their hands free for other tasks such as checking email, taking phone calls, banking online, writing thank you cards or tending to baby - all while pumping!

Designed by Wendy Armbruster Bell, an experienced Mom and seamstress as well as having spent plenty of time in the apparel business, PumpEase™ are functional, super fashionable supports that can fit over your nursing bra/garment or over nothing at all. Instead of being ugly and bulky, they are very well-made out of bright and fashionable swimsuit-like material.

They ensure proper alignment which results in excellent suction, are comfortable to wear, easy-to-use, and are designed with a 3-position hook and eye closure that adjusts to your varying breast size just like a bra does. That means no need to purchase a special bra or even worry if your pump will fit. PumpEase™ works with all single or double, battery-powered or electric breast pumps - no attachments required! They retail for between $29.00 and $34.00 and can be purchased direct or from a number of vendors. Check at for listings.

I really like the laizy daisy one, or the black and white polka dots. This would be great!

OMG I wish I had known about that with my daughter! I resorted to cutting holes in a really tight sports bra to attempt hands free pumping and even that didn't go so well.

My favorite pattern is the Lazy Daisy! Thanks for the chance at this!
