Getting a Free Breast Pump (Plus Accessories!) is NOT Too Good to be True

When I think back to my time using a breast pump with my first child, my memories are pretty ho hum at best. Mostly, I remember being alone in a confined space, with a ticking clock, telling me I needed to hurry back to work as I eyed the bottles awkwardly attached to my body […]
