Celebrating World Breast Pumping Day

January 27th marks the day we celebrate World Breast Pumping Day.  This day was created to acknowledge and celebrate the time, energy and effort moms put towards breast pumping.  There are many reasons why a mom may choose to pump their milk.  Some benefits of pumping include: 

*Pumping helps stimulate production

*Helps increase the amount of milk produced

*Helps create a storage of readily available milk

*Helps moms who struggle with their babies latching to the breast

Breast pumping is a big commitment and takes time and effort to learn how to do it correctly.  It is important to support those moms who choose to do it.  It is especially important for employers to accommodate those working moms who choose to pump in the work place.  By providing a private, clean and comfortable space to pump, employers can greatly help out their employees.

The right clothing can also make a world of difference when pumping.  Many moms have found that clothes designed especially for breastfeeding work the best.  Discreet horizontal zippers like these make it easy and more comfortable to pump.  

You may be wondering how you can observe World Breast Pumping Day.  Moms who pump can feel pride on this day for their accomplishments.  It is also important that moms share their stories and give advice and encouragement to other moms.  You can also reach out and encourage a mom who may be struggling with breastfeeding or pumping.

It’s amazing how the little things can truly make a world of difference. Little things like a few words of encouragement from your loved one, your teacher or your coworker. Or, in this case, a few words scribbled on a sticky note from a mom you’ve never met.

Sizing

Nursing Queen Size Chart

All of our designs fit true-to-size with an over-sized/relaxed fit (which compensates for extra weight and a larger chest). Our sizes are similar to maternity-wear: order your pre-baby size. If you're between sizes, size down. Typically, the best way to determine your size is to follow your pre-baby size in numbers on the chart (4/6, 8/10, etc). We realize this isn't a "one-size fits all" solution. If you aren't sure, measure your bust, waist, hips and follow the chart. If you get 3 measurements, pick the middle size. 

Plus Sizes: We follow a standard U.S. plus chart. Our plus sizes range from 1X-3X. NOTE: An XXL (in misses) is a size 1X in plus sizing.
