I remember sitting in the filing room in the middle school where I teach and frantically eyeing the clock as my ten allocated minutes for pumping ticked away. The more I worried about letdown, the less I was able to produce. Eventually I brought photos of my kids and a tiny bouquet of lavender to help that file room feel more comfortable for pumping. Now pumps like Hygeia’s EnJoye Breastpump (pictured above) actually record your children’s cries or coos so that you can play the sounds while pumping. Brilliant! I suppose you could do a quick video on your Ipod of your baby and get the same results. What do you do while you pump to help you relax enough to letdown quickly and maximize your time? Other moms will greatly appreciate your tricks!
