    Default Pumping hands free??

    My good friend just had a baby and he was born with a heart condition. He's in the hospital and will be for awhile. Since she's pumping around the clock I was wondering it anyone knows where I can get one of those bands that allows you to pump hands free? It would have to work with the Medela double pump. I don't even know if they work well or not. If anyone has used a good one and knows where I can find one I would appreciate the info. I would love to pick one up for her. Thanks.

    I was going to go buy a bra like that, but found this website that just uses just 2 elastic hair ties. Check it out! http://www.kellymom.com/bf/pumping/h...e-pumping.html I'm going to try it tomorrow when I pump! Good luck!

    I do the hair tie thing at it works just fine. And since I cut my hair and have no need for the multitude of hair ties I have lying around, I figure I am doing my part to recycle.

    the hands free halter top works great adn its cheaper than the bustier. I have one of those and i also use a sports bra with holes cut out in th nipple spots for the flanges! this also works great!
