When you’re breastfeeding, your breast pump essentially becomes another limb. You have to bring it with you everywhere. It goes to work, family get-togethers, on day trips and sometimes to restaurants. Breast pumps are not very easy to pack. There are a lot of parts, and you need an insulated area of your bag to store the breast milk you pump. If you’re going to have to lug around a breast pump everywhere, you might as well find somewhere practical and fashionable to store it.
There’s also a chance you don’t want to make it obvious that you’re carrying around a breast pump, which is why we rounded up the best breast pump bags that are discreet. They’re just ordinary, stylish bags and backpacks that you want to be seen carrying. They’re streamlined and comfortable with the makers understanding that you’ll be carrying extra stuff around with you. No one will look twice at them—with the exception of another mom, who might give you a knowing look.
Although these bags look ordinary, they do far more than your average purse. They have many pockets, made to carry your breast pump, the pumping accessories and bottles. Some of these bags even have room for your work supplies and can double as diaper bags. We included a special bag specifically for your breast pump parts if you just want a smaller supplement to your purse or a staging area for pumping. These bags will help make pumping easier.
