Double pump bustier

Post by wattle » Wed Mar 16, 2016 4:26 pm

Has anyone had success using a double pumping bustier?

I'm returning to study and wondering if getting one of these things will actually help with double pumping?

Any experiences to share?

I never tried one as you seem to need to wear it under your clothes. I used a couple of hair lackeys :) http://kellymom.com/bf/pumpingmoms/pump ... e-pumping/ I found it really helpful, and so much easier.

I did the same as Jenny. Really easy to use, small and quickly replaceable if one broke!

I seem to remember a suggestion on the kellymom site about cutting holes in a tight fitting singlet as well?

I've heard cutting holes in a sports bra works too.

I've tried the holes in a bra method, but found it didn't work that well, just didn't sit right. I guess it's a case of finding what works for your pump and boob type though!

Elastic bands and pressing the collection bottles against the desk in front of me worked for me - if I didn't lean against the desk the bottles tilted up and the milk ran back down the flanges.

Hmm thanks A+D... I guess I'd better remember to test it at home first!

Thanks so much - It's really boosting my confidence to hear others who've done it before :)

I bought and used a double pump bustier. It worked well but was more expensive than the ideas above that seem to work well too. The one I had wasn't supportive enough to wear instead of a bra (I was a F cup), so I just popped it over my breastfeeding bra when I wanted to express.
I did find it got really grubby/stained with dribbled milk around the holes which wouldn't come clean no matter how much I washed it. So after a while it didn't look nice - but it was still functional.
