My work involves a lot of international travel so I was very apprehensive as to how I would manage pumping in airports, managing airport security and customer meetings and dinners etc. This was really tough, I won’t lie to you, but is totally possible. I had to sigh when one security lady asked me where the baby was when she was asking about the pumps and icepacks I was carrying – would I need all of that if I had the baby with me?!
This is a picture of the milk I pumped and put in glasses of ice to keep it cold in the airport after having my icepacks confiscated!
This book, I had to order from the US but was extremely helpful. I think it is the only one of its kind though which I think says a lot about how far we still need to go in terms of women and working.
