Re: Exclusively pumping right now and need to get out of the house!!
Sigh. Being tied to the pump and finding private places to pump are some of the biggest challenges that exclusively pumping moms face.
I think whether or not you bring your pump over to your friend's house depends on the friend: if you explain the situation and she says "Of course, bring it and I'll hold the baby while you pump," then you bring it. If she says "Uh, that's kind of gross and I'd appreciate it if you didn't," then she's not the friend you thought she was and you should decide whether or not seeing her would be worth the price of going out and pumping in the car.
One thing that helped me when I was EPing was to keep a big basin full of soapy water next to the sink. Instead of washing stuff as it was used, I just chucked them in the basin and did one big wash-up once a day. I thought that was easier than doing a million small washing-up jobs.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
