Are you here to learn more about what it takes to be a pumping mama? Whether you’re planning on returning to work as a breastfeeding mama or looking more into being an exclusive pumper (yes, those mamas exist, and rock!!), I’ve got some good pumping tips for you!
The reality is, if you’re breastfeeding your little one and you plan on returning to work for more than 4+ hours at a time…you’ll have to get acquainted with a breast pump to maintain your milk supply.
You’re probably looking at your phone right now while your baby is taking a little nap…
You might even be breastfeeding your little one as you read this!
(Don’t worry, we all do that!)
I bet you’re still on maternity leave, and trying to wrap your head around this whole pumping thing…
I mean, breastfeeding is one thing. (It’s hard, don’t get me wrong there!)
But pumping…pumping is a whole ‘nother ball-game!
There’s parts you have to put together, valves you have to sanitize, directions you have to follow…
New words you have to learn like…
Flanges…open vs. closed system…let-down-mode…duckbill valve…
Pumping is like speaking another language sometimes…
Just ask my husband.
(He had no idea what I was talking about half the time!)

Okay, I’m sure you’ve heard about my super awesome breastfeeding class that I promote! If you haven’t check it out here!
(It’s really great!)
Well, what if I told you that I have a brand-spanking NEW pumping class to show you that is taught by the SAME LADY!!
She put together an AMAZING pumping class for all you lovely ladies who wanna PUMP LIKE A BOSS!
Let’s get a little personal…
I had to teach myself everything I know about pumping. Heck, it took me a good 2 MONTHS being back at work before I could really call myself a pro-pumper.
I mean, pumping is totally the kind of thing that most ladies learn as they go…

I had played with my pump, and pumped what I needed for work before my first day back (about 50oz), but I didn’t really take into consideration the mechanics of what I needed while I was there, how to pack my pump bag, and how to clean my parts while I was at work.
(News flash, she goes over all of this stuff!)
I was kinda unprepared…and my milk supply definitely diminished the day I went back to work.
How do I know that?
I pumped the most I EVER pumped on DAY ONE back at work…16 oz…
After that first day, my body started to say, “wait a second…you aren’t nursing your baby…this feels different” and my supply dropped.
Little did I know:
- I was using the wrong kind of pump for my body
- I had my settings all crazy
- I wasn’t pumping for long enough
And, once I started to realize all of this…it was kind of too late. My supply never got back up to where it once was (regardless of how much oatmeal I ate!).
The nice thing about Milkology’s Online Back To Work Pumping Class is that you can learn everything I didn’t know on the front end…
BEFORE you need to go back to work and pump!
Who is this class for?
Well, I’d totally recommend this class to any pregnant mama planning on returning back to work after maternity leave.
If you’re planning on exclusively pumping, this class can save you a lot of confusion as well.
Heck, if you’re planning on using a breast pump AT ALL…this class is worth it!
