Re: work clothes--what do you wear?
Many mothers have found clothing at consignement shops to wear. These clothes aren't as expensive, so you can don't feel as bad when they get stained.
Can you bring a stack of blankets or towels to use as lap blankets, and just stash them at work, so you don't have to remember to bring a new one each day? Or maybe in the trunk of your car?
I seem to remember one mother who kept a change of clothes and a bottle of shout in the trunk of her car, for when she dripped on her work clothes.
Another mother that I know switched her shirts to all-cotton, washable shirts, and still wore her business suit and blazer over it. She would take off the blazer, take off her nice shirt, pump while wearing what was essentially a tshirt, then get dressed again. She must have had more time at work than most of us have!
I hope some other working mothers chime in with what they do, I'd love to see the responses!
