Tuesday, January 17, 2006All this talk about breastfeeding at the pool or airing out your goodies while your kid romps in the flowers has me remembering what it was like to deal with pumping when I actually had to go places. I was exclusively pumping within a day or so of coming home from the hospital, so I never did end up having to nurse in public...but I did have to pump on a set schedule, no matter where I was.
So, the top five weirdest places that I've pumped...
5. Near the picnic area of Paramount's Great America.
4. On a plane.
3. Sitting in my car in the driveway during a horrific ice storm because our power went out and my car has a household adapter.
2. On a rifle range during the Ohio smallbore state championships.
1. In the back of a tour bus on the way to Yahoo! headquarters while having a conversation with a VP of the New York Times. (he's cool...his son was born a few weeks before my Nora was)
Almost ended up having to pump at Google headquarters too...but eeked out of that one by getting there about twenty minutes late. I will say that the two times I flew to California kind of sucked because I had to keep pumping on my Ohio schedule...that meant waking up at 3am to pump every night. Ick.
