    Default Hands free pumping?

    I've been pumping at work and am looking for a device/accessory that can allow me to pump hands-free. I've got a Medela Pump in Style. Do they make these?

    Thanks!!

    Successfully BFed until DD was 14 months old (while I was pregnant) and she decided she didn't like the taste of the milk anymore.

    I''m not sure if they make anything for the PIS, but I know the Medela Freestyle is hands free.

    There are a lot of products out there that are bra-like contraptions that the horns just hook into - they should work with a Pump-in-Style. You can also make one yourself by cutting holes in an old bra. I've also heard of people cobbling things together with elastic bands, etc. You just need something to keep the horns snug on your breast while you pump.

    Ditto on the bra bustier. I pump exclusively, and being hands free while pumping so I can hold my baby, work on my laptop, etc. is the only thing that has kept me sane through the mind-numbing pumping sessions 6x/day. highly recommend it!

    I have an old bra with holes cut in it. Works just fine and its cheap.

    the best thing I have bought was a hands free bra.

    you put in on over your nursing bra..then you can take it off and go when your done pumping.

    it was 32.00
