    Yeah, I like it so much that I have two
    Of them

    Sorry, computer went down and I'm now stuck with my
    iPod

    It's not as convienent as a bra you can leave on, and I out it on over my clothes and pull up the front, but it really fits and holds the bottles very securely.

    Since I'm pumping only twice a day at work, three times a week, I don't really need a bra all the time for that purpose...

    My coworker is EPing for twins and she turns the suction on the Lactina to max and I think that is how she does hands free pumping! OUCH!!

    You know, I haven't had trouble with the kids unplugging the pump very much. It happened a time or two, and then I think the novelty wore off. I have more trouble with them messing with each other and rooting through the kitchen while I'm trapped by the pump.

    ETA: I have got to stop pumping by the light of my iPod at night. Just filled one bottle and it overflowed on me. And I need to figure out what I've been eating to stimulate my supply. I'm back at way too much milk. The freezer -- and it's not a tiny freezer but a good sized upright -- is jam packed. I can't get any more ziolock bags with shingles in there! I dint need any more milk! But I had an extra 20 oz again when I went to make feeders for the overnight.

    I keep giving myself panic attacks, thinking the pump is broken. It's almost always just not plugged in right
