A hands-free pumping bra is on the Rookie Moms’ short list of real must-haves for new moms. At a birth and baby event in Berkeley last month, I met Emily, founder of The Dairy Fairy, who has even loftier goals. On her list of must-haves is a pretty hands-free pumping bra, and so she invented one. From her website:
We’ve developed an all-in-one nursing and pumping bra and tank that lets you nurse, hands-free pump, and adjust for fluctuating breast size.Â Best of all? It lets you look like the beautiful mother that you are.
Anyone who has pumped at work with a hands-free bra knows that it’s a hassle to take it on and off. If you were old school, like me, you just pumped from your nursing bra, but held the bottles and got nothing else done, except for developing cramps from trying to hold a phone or device at the same time.
Emily designed her Dairy Fairy bras to be worn all day. The adjustable cup size closure you see around the rib cage enables women who change sizes throughout the day to get the right amount of support, before and after pumping or nursing. Dairy Fairy even has matching underwear for those who are choosy about their undergarments.
