    Default My company rocks!

    So ever since I went back to work, I've been pumping in a storage closet. Another lady at work is also pumping, so we wheeled a computer chair in there, and stacked up some file boxes for a table. Not the most glam of locals, but it has a locking door. Well, yesterday an admin lady came to get me to "show me something." She had worked with the facilities guys to create an actual lactation room for us! It's nice! It has a couple of comfy chairs and a real table. It even has a lamp and a picture on the wall. It's a room that you have to badge in to, and my badge and the other lady's badge are the only ones that work. How cool is that??? Totally unexpected. It's just so....progressive of them to have a lactation room.

    That's so awesome! I wish more companies would make it easier and more comfortable for mamas to pump. When I worked at Wal-Mart I had to pump in my car because there was nowhere else. I'm glad they gave y'all a space of you own!

    That is very cool, how nice of them. My building contains 3 offices leased to different companies. There is a "lactation room" in one of the other offices. I will be the 3rd woman to use it. I am glad that its there, but the only weird thing is I have to pass by people's desks to get to that room. My ex coworker said it was hard because everyone over there would stop her and ask about the baby. No wonder her pump sessions seemed to last an hour. She also said its pretty dusty in there. Boo.

    Vicki - no, so far we have always just taken turns.

    That's awesome. We have an office dedicated for meetings so I'm using that, which is nice because I can log into a computer and still work. I work with nothing but guys, but they are all very supportive and no one's even remotely weird about it. It's really cool.

    That is great! With my first, I pumped in the restroom with a cover (not in the stall, yuck!) There was a room I could have used, but it didn't have a sink to rinse my parts and it would have taken me longer to go to the room which was quite a ways away and then to the restroom and I was on a 15 minute break limit. 10 minutes to pump and 5 minutes to walk to the restroom and set up and put my milk away when done and walk back to my desk. This time I have my own office which I can pump in and a new position so I can choose to break up my lunch hour over the course of the day so it is a lot nicer.
