Re: Pumping question
what kind of pump are you using? is it new? how long and how often do you pump?
i agree with PPs - you need to do whatever you can to make yourself feel relaxed and calm while pumping. you have an extra battle, being in a bathroom that other people need to use, so you need to figure out ways of combating that. making sure you let them know ahead of time seems like a great idea, as does making sure there's a lock on the door so they don't come in accidentally, putting a sign on the door so they don't even knock, bringing headphones and a mobile device so you can listen to music or a slideshow of pics of your baby, i found it really helped to have an audio track of my baby's "latch on" sounds too, which i looped to a slideshow in itunes (super easy to do). i had a ritual of closing my eyes, massaging my shoulders, stretching my arms, then massaging my breasts (=compressions) while pumping, and that all really helped.
