Thread: Pumping on the Vegas Strip

  1. #1

    Default Pumping on the Vegas Strip

    I will be away from my baby for 3 days while on a trip to Las Vegas. I plan to pump while away to maintain my supply. I know that many of the hotels have beautiful amenities, and would love to not have to go back to my room or find a bathroom stall to pump, but didn't have luck searching out specific nursing/pumping locations on their websites.

    Does anyone have any knowledge of comfortable places to pump on the Vegas strip (ideally with an outlet and just a little bit of privacy)? I am staying at the MGM Grand.

    Welcome to the forum!

    I have no idea about the Vegas strip. But my first question is always this: any chance of taking the baby with you?

    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"

    Hi mama, my approach to this is always to call the place and ask. Because sometimes even if there is no specific lactation/pumping room, they can accommodate your request by setting aside an office, conference room etc. Those Vegas hotels are huge and it can take a long time to get back to your room to pump! (I attended a meeting at one of the hotels there and I did end up going back to my room - for that particular meeting it wasn't a big deal to skip some of the talks, and it was a short meeting - but walking back and forth probably doubled the time of my pumping break!)

    I have taken baby with me to one conference and that worked out really well, but it can be an expensive solution and may not be practical in every situation.

    also, if you're there for a conference, sometimes the organization that runs the conference will have resources - like my professional conf always sets up a quiet/relaxation room that is nice to nurse in, and has been accommodating with a more private space when i needed to pump.

    I was there for a few days when my son was 10mo. I actually did a lot of my pumping in the car with my battery pack. Since parking is free at all the casinos it wasn't a big deal to drive to wherever we wanted to go, even if it was just a couple of casinos down the strip, self park so I knew where the car was, then I would take a pump break in the car. I also didn't want to carry my pump around with me all day.
