One thing about breastfeeding I can say for certain is that it requires a ton of accessories!!! Seriously, I feel like breastfeeding has overtaken my home!
Not only are there are lot of things that you need to breastfeed (pump and accessories, nursing pads, Boppy, nipple cream, maybe a nipple shield, a shell or Hakka to catch let downs… and the list goes on) but those things can get kinda pricey!
One accessories for breastfeeding that I wanted but didn’t want to spend money on was a pumping bra- to make pumping hands free!
Well, instead of purchasing one, I decided to make one myself! In case you’re like me, and want to pump hands free, here’s how to do it without spending a dime!
To make it, all you need is:
- An old sports bra that still fits snuggly
- A pen
I’m sure you see where I’m going with this. Just slip on the bra, find you nipples, marked the spot with a pen, and then (after taking the bra off) make a very small incision where the mark is.
And boom! Free pumping bra!
It’s not fancy, but it gets the job done! Trust me. I’m sitting here using mine right now!
