Welcome to Room 643, the Moo-Moo room.
It was my first day on the new job. In fact, it was also my first day back from maternity leave. Baby Boy and I had finally gotten the hang of nursing, only in just enough time for me to return to work; he now needed to learn how to bottle feed, and I needed to learn how to pump. Many of my co-workers at this new job already knew that I had a newborn at home, but the subject of breastfeeding and pumping wasn’t exactly a topic covered in my new hire orientation. So, when I mentioned around lunchtime that I would like to go and pump (read: had missed what would have been approximately three morning nursing sessions, was lactating through my bra and desperately needed to empty my boobs), our HR director immediately went on a hunt for a private place for me to pump.
