Three things to distract you while you pump.

Sometimes it's a bit hard to get into the zone for a let down.

Sometimes you're just bored.

Here are three nice things to look at. We'll add to them as we find them.

If you've got any to share, please comment or drop us a line!

1 / Art

We came across these amazing drawings from the.earwig, a friend of one of Milkdrop's mentors. We love them. We really did find them sticking in our brain weeks later.

Here are a couple of our favourites.

2 / Meditation

There are lots of guided meditations out there for breastfeeding, but not so many for breast pumping itself.

Here's one we like from Carly Eastwold. Why? She works you through winding down for pumping, gives you time to get yourself setup, and even helps you use that pump sound to soothe, rather than stress, you.

Know a good meditation for pumping?

We'd love to hear about it. Add it to the comments or drop us a line to let us know.

3 / Poetry

It's not a meditation as such, but it might just leave you feeling as good. And even a bit proud of what you've accomplished.
