Relatable Breast Pumping Mom Pumpkin Halloween Display

Anyone Who’s Ever Used a Breast Pump Will Actually Empathize With This Pumpkin

You'll never look at your breast pump quite the same way again after witnessing the latest Halloween pumpkin display to go viral on social media.

A photo — shared on the Facebook page Breastfeeding Mama Talk — shows a "mama" pumpkin standing next to a makeshift bassinet holding two miniature baby pumpkins. One of the "twins" is crying while the other sucks on a pacifier. As for their mom? She's strapped to a familiar Medela pump, with the bottles half-filled, not with breast milk but with pumpkin seeds. Her expression? Well, that is probably the most relatable part of the entire image.

While some commenters marveled at the pumpkin's "good output" and were envious of how the flanges stayed put on her chest, most all of the nearly 5,000 likes were in true solidarity.

As one commenter put it, "I don't have twins, but I do have a 5-day-old milk goblin, and I relate to this pumpkin a lot."
