Do any of you ladies recommend any certain breast milk storage bags? Just curious before I go and buy a bunch.

yep, just be diligent about pumping and try to pump at least a feeding a day between when baby eats. You can pump about an hour after baby nurses, and will be fine to produce for baby again when she is ready to eat.

at work... make sure you pump on any break you can and store it. Relax, drink enough water, and bring a picture of baby to work with you to pump.. it can help.

according to this, West Virginia has no breast feeding laws in place. I'd go in and ask your HR what you guys can work out to accomodate your breast feeding committment instead of insisting you know your rights.

i used to pump everywhere walking around stores, in passenger seat of car, if i started filling up, i would hang blanket on my chest, using my bra straps to hold in place,

easy to pump with 1 hand, suction is really good I could get 8-10 ozs in few minutes...
