Driving While Pumping

Put the Pedal to the Metal and Pump: Have You Done It?

A friend recently told me about the ultimate mom multitask — pumping while driving! She was in a bind after a doctor's appointment ran late so she had to hop in her car and hook up. Using a travel pump and bottle attachments, she headed home while making dinner for her son. Have you expressed milk in transit?

I never drove while hooked up to the pump, but I did pump while my husband drove during a Thanksgiving road trip. Getting hooked up to the pump without flashing all of the truck drivers on the interstate was quite an interesting experience!

I haven't since my son was bottle fed. However when my daughter comes in December I may have to at some point because many members of my family live a couple hours away, and I usually go visit them on days when my hubby is at work. The pump I bought is hands free, and you can easily pull over to attach, drive while you pump, and pull over to detach.
