“I had no concept of what expressing would look like. I was pretty horrified when I bought a pump, tried it and saw my nipple and breast being milked like a dairy cow.”
“If my breast were really full and I went in the shower, the hot water seemed to have the same effect and I was like I had 2 milk firehoses”.
“You have to laugh – the noise of the pump is dreadful and as for the sight of your nipple being sucked into it…..”
“I’d stacked a pile of files on my desk and thought I could express in my office but sure enough I flashed a colleague more than I wanted”
“Don’t cry over spilt milk, unless it’s breast milk…..then sob”
“The number of times I leaked milk all over my top because I thought I’d just wait another 5 minutes to express!”
“I challenge anyone to look down when expressing and not think of a cow!!”
“Being up at 3am expressing whilst the baby sleeps through…feels so wrong”
“Seriously, moment of silence for the breasts”
