    Default Freemies anyone?

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and have been finding the other posts very helpful. I have a 4 week old daughter and have been worrying about the logistics of pumping when I go back to work. I bought the freemies system so that maybe I could pump in my shared office without my boobs hanging out. (There is an attached bathroom where I can insert the freemies and I don't care if my co-workers know I am pumping.) Has anyone used this system? I've tried it once and it worked great but I found the clean-up more involved than my regular horns and bottles.

    I've seen it. It won't work with a Freestyle, so I didn't try it or invest in it (or I would...it would probably make pumping a lot easier for me since my family is on the move all the time!).

    Would you have to wash it every time, or could you treat it like most of us who are pumping do our horns...just leave them or wipe them down with Medela wipes or pop them in the fridge.

    However, I wonder why you just can't leave it in place all day long That seems like it would be the easiest solution. And then you could probably get more sessions in and collect more milk.

    Wiping down between pumpings or putting in the fridge are both good ideas! You cant just leave them in all of the time because they only hold up to 4 oz each though. I guess I'll have to see how they go when I'm back at work in 4 weeks.
