A lot career wise is up in the air for me at the moment, but right now it seems likely that when I return to work in a couple weeks I will spend a few days in seminars at different locations. I'm not sure how to best manage pumping. I typically use a Medela double electric, and at my work I have multiple locations in bathrooms and offices. But, for these first couple days I will have orientations and classes, where I will probably get a set break schedule when the classes break for coffee and lunch. Also, these will be a various locations, like other buildings and the local community college.
Would you just take a pump and hope to find a good space? Call your employer and ask for a space? Call the community college? Get a car adapter or something like that? I'm not crazy about that idea, but if it worked for you I'd love to hear more. Or, go with a manual pump in case an electric outlet isn't available?
I would love to hear how you all handle this, especially if you travel for work. The timing might be weird too. Would I be better off taking breaks at different times from everyone else? I really only need about 5 to 10 min with the double electric.
