Consumer Reports: Tips for Successful Pumping

I've just discovered that Consumer Reports has a blog online. They have a post up now on Tips for Successful Breast Pumping at work. I thought they did a good job of listing the basics you'll need to make it work, but found it bizarre that they advise new moms to skip the company outing. I don't think anyone should skip an all-day event she wants to attend either for the fun and camaraderie or the networking opportunities just because she's pumping! If yPumping_at_workour company is planning a picnic or all-day retreat, find out ahead of time where you can pump. You'll be surprised at how easy it is to find a private space to pump, even in the most public of places. Don't let pumping keep you from doing the things you need to or want to do at work.

Honestly, I can't even be that mad because they used a picture of a black mom and baby on the blog post. Yay!
