Okay, I will be pumping at a new work location starting Monday. I am lucky enough to have a new boss that will let me use a spare office in our area rather than have to travel to a different building for the designated lactation room. YAY!!
Question: I will not have a fridge in the spare office. I live in Arizona so it's already hotter than hades. I don't want my milk going bad. I know in the ice pack it is technically okay for 24 hours, however, if the packs are out for the 10 hours I'm gone plus then driving home in my 100+ degree heat, is it really going to stay cold enough?
Suggestions and tips please
Also, how do you handle hand washing when you don't have a sink in the pump space? I'm a little ocd with it and always wash and don't touch anything else but my flanges til I'm done pumping. I guess goin to the bathroom to wash hands right before pumping is best?
