I hope you enjoy my DIY pumping bra tutorial!
I have just about made it to one year of breastfeeding and what a crazy journey it’s been. Breastfeeding has had its challenges but has been oh so rewarding. Pumping has not necessarily been my favorite part of the journey, but it has had its silver linings. How amazing is it to be able to physically see the liquid gold that your body makes for your baby, and then even build up a stash? For me, that part was pretty cool.
My insurance provided me with two breast pumps. I leave one at work and one at home. I make sure I have a fully packed pumping bag in both locations with all of the necessities, including but not limited to extra bottles, storage bags, a cleaning brush, and of course a pumping bra or two.
A pumping bra is a must-have for pumping mamas. It frees up your hands so that you can use your phone, your computer, or maybe just relax for a hot minute. But pumping bras are expensive, and if you’re like me and like to have a few available for use, making a DIY pumping bra is a great option. It only takes a few minutes to make and is way cheaper than buying several pricy bras.
In the video, I show you how to make a pumping bra by using the scissor method, the nursing bra pumping hack method, and the ponytail method.
