About 12 years ago, I always travel from the office to the small house with an insulated bag. It was full of breastmilk and ice inside. That time, I worked for more than eight hours a day in Ortigas Center. I just gave birth to my third, thus I made sure to bring breastmilk for him every day. This mother never missed pumping milk whenever she felt her breast getting heavy. I remember I could express four to six ml of milk at least three to four times a day. My officemates would often joke to borrow my expressed milk inside the freezer when we run out of creamer or milk for their coffee.
During those times, we didn’t have a breastfeeding station at the office. I stayed in the conference room whenever I pump milk. Most friends and co-workers then would refer the conference room as the nursing station.
