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.

I loved pumping at the client site. It was a break from the team room. Great time to get work done with no interruptions

PwC covers the pump and will pay for overnight delivery too.

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.

Got asked today best way to gather our own (agency's) 1st party data.

No idea if this is right or there's a better way or where I'd start my research. Anyone want to point me in some sort of direction?
