Pump & refrigerate. But I have dumped too. Learned to cover both breasts at once and eat/work with the other hand - multi tasking, take that boys 😉

I did! It depends on the pump but mine was pretty quiet. I asked the Client if I could use an empty office down the hall and they happily gave me the key! (She was a mom herself) at another client I ran out to the car

Most clients actually now have space for this. Buy a cooler, request a fridge from the hotel and you can go through a special line if you have precheck. Flight attendants will also give you ice

Pumping is what men do in the gym to get swole, you girls are just milking yourselves. Most client sites I've seen have milking rooms set aside for this.

Pump? What the hell does that mean?

There is some new pumping device that is silent cordless and fits inside a bra. Also Uncle D will overnight it home for you.

Damn ... is uncle D hiring? Cause this shit is expensive.

I have a call with a client in a few hours regarding an upcoming settlement conference. I know she wants an analysis but opposing counsel really hasn’t been working on the case or didn’t respond to discovery. It’s a WC case so the bureau is handling the case and the judgment. He hasn’t been very helpful either. What should I tell the client? 😫
