Let’s talk about pumping bag essentials! As a second time mom who has exclusively pumped with both my boys, I can safely tell you my essentials are worth every penny. Below is a list of my pumping bag essentials!
For me I knew I needed something small and compact that would work as well as my spectra. This pump checks all of those requirements. It’s important to test run your pumping bag a few times before returning to work!
I always bring both with me as I’ve had to work while pumping. Both are nice to have but Cara style pumps aren’t a guarantee to fully empty your breast correctly. So be sure to have your regular pump parts with you just in case.
I absolutely love this! It keeps your breast milk cold for up to 20 hours. Perfect if you don’t have access to a fridge or if you’re on the go. Use code EATPLAYLIV15 for 15% off here.
Spare pump parts
I’ve had my share of duckbill valves randomly go bad. I always carry extra just in case.
Branch Basics travel foam and travel bottle cleaner are life savers. Also remember to grab a bag to hold clean pump parts!
Always bring your charger with you, even if you’ve charged it the night before.
I use a poncho style cover just in case I need to pump in front of others. Check out our favorite Parker Baby Co. Multi-use Covers!
These are my essentials and they make my life so much easier while I'm on the go. Definitely do a few trial runs to see what works for you, but this list is a great place to start. I also recommend checking out an Instagram page called @onewiththepump! Tamari is full of great resources and can help you with any pumping questions. Happy Pumping!
