Listener question: Do you have tips for discretely storing pump parts in a work refrigerator? Also, I used a Medela before & now use a Spectra: Do you have any tips for using the Medela parts, like bottles, w/ a Spectra pump? I commute 30-40 minutes: Do you have tips for transporting milk for storage & any advice for bringing pumped milk to daycare?
