Multi-tasking while pumping milk

It’s often been said that mothers are the best multi-taskers on earth. Why is that the case? Well, it’s because they don’t have the choice of multi-tasking; they MUST multitask simply to survive and ensure their children’s survival and comfort. This is also the only way shit gets done in the house.

Here is a list of things I’ve completed while connected to my Spectra S1 breast pump. I’m pretty proud of myself, if I can say that, given that this Spectra pump, even with its built-in battery, is basically like carrying around a mini bowling ball everywhere that’s connected to both my nipples.

Cutting vegetables and fruit

Preparing toast

Mashing up avocado

Preparing morning oatmeal

Eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Brushing my teeth (I do not recommend this; this was ominous!)

Flossing my teeth

Entertaining baby in Baby Bjorn bouncer chair

Double boiling and heat aerating Chai

Whisking matcha

Disinfecting kitchen counters and bathroom sink

Scrubbing toilet bowls

Preparing breast milk and formula bottles

Wiping up baby spit up on floor

Washing dishes
