Hi all! I'm about 1/2 way to my due date with baby #2, and when I return to work I will have to pump in my car. I have a job where I drive around to different people's homes, so there is no office or bathroom I can go to during the day...
Has anyone pumped in the car often? I have a couple times w/ my daughter, but since I'll be doing this 1-2x every day, I wanted some tips! Would it be good to get a cooler? I've heard there are plug-in ones for the cigarette lighter? That way what I pump can stay cool.... Would it be good to have a blanket to cover up so I dont feel so awkward pumping in my car? Is the battery pack or the cigarette lighter adapter more effective at getting good suction?
I'm already feeling a little anxious about how all this will work! ; ) Very appreciative of any advice/tips : ) Thanks, ladies!
