Do Not Disturb: Nursing Mama Pumping
One of my least favorite things about returning to work post maternity leave is pumping. With regularity, every three hours despite being in my office or out and about I have to hook myself up and pump. I close the door, draw the blinds, and turn off the lights hoping that it would prevent disruptions from coworkers. Short of putting a sign on the door stating that I am pumping, I hope every time that disruptions are minimal. Inevitably someone knocks. Uh, "I'll be right out in a few minutes," I would say. I'm the kind that's a bit private about pumping at work and feel like I shouldn't draw attention to what is happening behind closed doors but I am wondering if I need to. Should I put a sign on my door? What should it say? What have you done and is it effective?
