    I'm not sure if there are any out there!! Do you know what sort of pump she would be using?

    It's almost always easier if she's got some sort of hands free set up. Even if it's the simple rubber band method.
    Facing baby away from the pump can help if she's got a baby who's old enough to grab at the tubing! The football or clutch hold with both arms under mom can work really well.
    Having enough support for baby and moms with pillows can really help.
    Also have everything ready to go before you put your baby to your breast, you don't want to be fiddling with things and losing that let down reflex for the other side!
