Oh man - I forgot my pump parts today! I went in to pump (already 30 minutes late) and got all ready only to find I had forgotten my shields and couldn't connect my pump to me!

Oh, that's a bummer :(

I don't think I ever completely forgot my pump or the parts, but on occasion I forgot my cooler w/ the empty bottles.

I just did that two weeks ago! My husband had to bring two screaming kids to work to bring them to me.. I had the pump.. just no parts!

And then this week I had a hole in my connector piece, I tried to fix it with duct tape but I got absolutely no pressure.. I had to run to the nearby hospital to steal a piece from the LC there!!

I'm leaving my Medeal Harmony (manual) pump to leave at work for emergencies from here on out!

I think when you work and pump, you are ultimately going to forget something at some time.

I forgot the entire pump once. I have an office all to myself to use as my lactation room (yes, I know I am very lucky). I keep my pump there all week and lock the door at night. I also keep one set of

That's smart... I packed a little 'emergency' bag last night w/ my hand pump, 2 bottles/lids, some diapers, wipes, and a nursing cover and put it in the back of my car. Hopefully that will help!! :)
