So on Thursday night, one of my worst fears as a breastfeeding mom happened. I forgot my pump at work, and I needed to be somewhere else the next day (and was going to be away from the baby the whole entire day). I began panicking and trying to figure out how to get the pump – would I go back at 5 am to get the pump before getting ready for my day? All of a sudden a wonderful thought popped into my head – Target, Walmart, they are open late aren’t they? They are going to have what I need!
It was already 9:50, and we have a Target pretty close to where I live. I hopped in the car, and less than ten minutes later I was at Target. I go to the baby aisle, and there I see a manual pump. Hallelujah. I restrain myself from shopping any more (confession, I absolutely love target and will spend hours there if let to my own devices) and go to the checkout area to buy the pump. I feel so, so relieved.
The manual pump did not work as well as the electric pump does, but it definitely saved the day.
Has this happened to anyone else?
