    It took me hours Saturday night, but i did it, I'm not sure how it will hold up in the wash...lol but i'm a handsfree pumper now!

    Last night was the first time I tried it at night, I pumped from 11pm to 1:30am. I didn't get anything on the left side, but a little bit of milk on the right side, of course nothing made it into the bottle...I will have to work on that.

    I use my nursing bra and just rig that... That might be easier!

    well that might be better during the day but i would be afraid of it slipping at night while i sleep. that is what we are talking about. oh i hope that didnt sound rude or snooty. we are talking about making a bra the you could pump while sleeping in. do you think that would work?

    I actually have used my nursing bra to snooze while pumping. Well, as best as you can snooze while sitting up! The suction from the pump holds it on for the most part... The bra just helps with gravity!

    I would think it's worth a try...

    Good luck! I hope it works out for you!!

    That sounds much easier than all that sewing I did this weekend...LOL

    Someone elsewhere suggested cutting holes in a sports bra, but I don't have one and didn't have the money for one at the time, it was only a dollar and some change for the hook and eyes, and felt.
