    The only place to express is the owners office.
    Does your spectra work as a double pump?

    Mine could and I could finish pumping in 10 mins.

    Bummer. My old boss was pretty cool the new boss not so much. Mega ***** and they are the kind words. I had to go out to the feeding rooms as I'm in a westfield. The girls always had a giggle at me when I walked out with my bag and bottles

    I pumped for 5ish months. Ds was 7 months when I went back to work part time. I was only allowed to pump in my lunch break and went to a parents room at the local shopping centre or sat in my car with sun visors up. I had an avent electric and manual. I was never able to get more than about 50mls in 45 min pumping so he would have that at bed time and formula at daycare.

    I sent 3 x 150 ml bottles too.

    Given LB is not keen on anything but the breast, smaller amounts may be better.

    There are special BM freezer tray things you can buy - when i was pumping, ABA sold them, but they don't have a shop anymore. I know some people just use regular freezer trays with lids to keep out the freezer ice too. You could send frozen sticks/blocks to be put in a bottle to be warmed up as needed?

    Good luck!

    Gosh... So many people not given extra time to pump. Smokers get breaks right?

    My spectra is s double so I'm pretty sure I could pump in 10 minutes. I just have to get fast at setting up and packing up lol.
