Am I crazy? My building has a "mother's room" where I pumped 2x/day for a year with DS # 1, so it's not like my cube is my only option. The room is on a different floor and we have to pick up and drop off a key each time, so it's just a hassle. I was pumping up to 5x/day total with DS # 1, so it would be nice to be able to get in more pumping while at the office. There's nowhere on my floor / closer to my desk that I can pump.
If I can do it in my cube instead, I'd be able to pump 3x while at the office instead of 2 and I wouldn't have to make up any missed work time. I'm still pregnant with DS # 2 so I have a little while to figure this out. My plan would be to discuss with my nearby coworkers, manager, and HR if necessary to make sure no one would be offended or bothered. I think the noise would be the main issue - I feel like I could pump under a nursing cover (maybe with a "pumping in progress" sign on the back of my chair so someone approaching my cube might have warning) or put a sheet up over my cube opening or something for visual privacy.
My main concern is that my cube is literally right outside 3 VPs offices - not private at all. I'm not so much concerned about my comfort as with the comfort of those walking by while I'm pumping. I almost feel like it would be less of an issue if I don't even put up a sheet, since the sheet might draw more attention than anything. I wouldn't want anyone to think I'm doing something I'm not supposed to be, or be like "why does she get to put up a sheet across her cube opening when the rest of us can't?" or whatever.
I definitely feel like it's more of an "issue" since we have a place I can pump, I just don't want to use it. Thoughts?
