I have exclusively pumped for ten months. The one thing that I'd hope is addressed is the annoying noise breast pumps make. Please quiet the pump.
Quieter so my co-workers don't have to ask what the whooshing noise is?
A quieter pump, would help. I always was in a hurry to be done pumping. Anything that can be done to make it less awkward would be really great.
Hospital grade pumps are quieter. Without a quiet pump I would not be able to take conference calls while pumping, which would be a huge drain (npi) on my productivity.
It's so noisy!! The air pump on my aquarium is quieter and it runs 24/7. When I take conference calls in my office and have to pump at the same time, I just tell the people it's the printer in my office.
Quieter! In addition to the pumping noise, my pump intermittently clacks and squeaks. It's not subtle when pumping at work.
