Introducing my BlogHer '12 sponsor: Simple Wishes!

I am so excited to be attending BlogHer '12 in New York city in just a few short weeks! I will get to meet some of my amazing bloggy friends for the first time, learn a lot from the sessions, stuff my face with amazing food (including McDonald's fries!) at the enumerable parties, and finally get to have some me-time. That's right; this will be the first time I have ever left Carina overnight - more to come on how I'm feeling about that later.

Without further ado I'd like to introduce one of the two fantastic companies who are helping me get to BlogHer: Simple Wishes!

After Carina was born, I planned on returning to work after my 12 weeks of maternity leave were over, and I was pumping daily in order to build up a freezer stash in preparation. I lamented the fact that I couldn't multitask while pumping. I felt {sort of} like a prisoner as I sat there holding the breast shields and bottles up against my chest for 20+ minutes at a time. And? Maybe I just have no stamina but my hands and arms got tired. It wasn't until a fellow new-Mom recommended the Simple Wishes hands free pumping bra that I felt like I could actually get something done while pumping.

Not me, but you get the idea. PS I'd love to work at my counter
When I returned to work part-time, and then progressed to full-time, the hands free pumping bra was absolutely invaluable for me. Instead of taking a 20 minute break 2-3 times a day to pump (which would add an hour to my work day, and mean one hour less to spend with my peanut), I could work while pumping! It took me just one minute to put on the bra and get all of the pump parts connected. I saved so much time - and frustration! My hands and arms were no longer tired and I didn't feel like a slave to the pump anymore.

After the new baby arrives, I will for sure be using my Simple Wishes hands free bustier again! I might even buy a second one if/when I return to work so I can leave one at home, as well. In my opinion it is definitely a must for anyone who will be pumping.
