Carey Bradshaw used her breast pump exclusively (six hours a day!) and knows what makes pumping easy and efficient. Her journey is your journey. Read her story.
Hi! I’m Carey Bradshaw (no, not THAT Carrie Bradshaw) and among all the other things I do (entrepreneur, business owner, wife, daughter, sister, volunteer, friend), I’m a mom.
When my daughter was born, I had trouble breastfeeding. First of all, let me say that I think formula is fine. It was my choice to try to give my daughter breast milk for as long as I was able. In order to do this, I found that I needed to spend a LOT of time attached to my breast pump. I was happy to do it but needed to find a way to free my hands so I could play with my baby and run my business.
I bought a hands-free pumping bra and found it to be ugly, uncomfortable and challenging to use. The openings for the breast shields/flanges were fashioned in a way that caused pinching and spillage every time I tried to insert or remove the breast shields. There was so much work involved to correctly size it to my body (Velcro, snaps, zippers, straps, etc. – I mean, who puts a zipper in the front when dealing with engorged breasts!) and it took too much effort to put it on correctly each time I needed to pump. The design was not comfortable, practical or attractive in any way. What’s a mother to do? I took matters into my own hands and fashioned my own. Thus was born the Hooter Holster Hands-Free Breast Pumping Tube Top! Wow! That’s a mouthful. How about…simply…Hooter Holster by Carey Bradshaw?
Let’s face it, there’s nothing fun about using a breast pump but it doesn’t have to be all bad. Hooter Holster by Carey Bradshaw is the BEST bra for hands-free pumping available and it is also cute, comfortable and convenient. This pumping bra can be easily used with any major breast pump flange or shield – including Ameda and Medela Breast Pumps. Along with your breast pump, Hooter Holster by Carey Bradshaw is a pumping essential!
