S/O What do you do while pumping?

Hands free, hanging on, or manual?

What do you do? I just started watching movies on Netflix during my pumps breaks at work. 20 minutes at a time. Sometimes I read on my Kindle. I watch videos of DD on my phone, listen to my iPod. Anything to distract me from what I'm actually doing, and drown out the sound of the pump.

What do you do to pass the time?

I wish I could do hands free but it doesn't work for me.

I got the pumping bra thing, worked ok for lightweight bottles. When I didn't feel like strapping it on, I watched Pushing Daisies on Netflix or read Sherlock Holmes on my Kindle/phone.

I play on my phone or talk to my hubby on the phone (usually at lunch). Bless him for not minding the noise! Anything I van do with one hand as I use the other one to hold everything in place

Re: S/O What do you do while pumping?

I use one of those hands free bras. At work, once I know that everything if flowing ok, I actually put my nursing cover on so I don't obsess over how much I'm pumping minute by minute (also makes me feel more comfortable in case someone were to ignore my sign and the locked door and accidentally walk !) and then just set a timer on my phone. I'll often do paperwork and data entry, easy work that keeps my mind occupied, but not stressed. If I need a break from work, I'll surf the internet or catch up on personal email. Oh,and I usually look at pictures of dd on my phone when I first start pumping...helps with let down, and also reminds me why I'm hooked up to that ridiculous machine to start with!

Read a book on my tablet, play games, chat with my SAHM friend. My pumping session is during her DD nap.

Play Ruzzle! And browse DS of course! It's a good distraction and gives me some quiet time by myself.
