pumping bra

Does anyone use a hands-free pumping bra? Which one and how do you like it? I've never tried one, just held it with my hands, but I'm considering getting one.

Re: pumping bra

I bought the cheap 3 for $10 walmart bras and cut holes in them to hold the flanges. Works great

Re: pumping bra

I have the strap one holder. I like it cause I love my Bravado bra and just can put this over my bra.

Re: pumping bra

There's another thread by a different mama just like this! I had a deja vu moment!

I have several of the Motherhood maternity double layer nursing bras. They have a great slit opening and you just pull the top up and the bottom down for nursing. I'm no longer pumping but was able to pump hands free by simply closing the slit over the breast shield. They're $15.98 right now but sometimes go on sale for $10 to 12. Hope that helps!

Re: pumping bra

i use the easy expressions hands-free pumping corset. it actually zips on over your bra, which i found was easier for me because i could leave it at work.

i used to use it all the time, but i got tired of putting it on

nowadays 1/2 the time i use rubber bands to hold the horns in place. takes less time to set up and works like a charm

Re: pumping bra

When I pumped I used this method. Easy and cheap!

This is what I use as well. I sometimes just hold the pump now, but in the beginning I was pumping so much and caring for a newborn I had to have something that worked hands free and this worked awesome for me!

This is totally what I did, which was faster because I didn't need to strip to the waist to put on a specialty bra, and also warmer - I don't know why they need to keep the lactation rooms at the hospital at 68 degrees.
