Introduction

Get ready to celebrate all the hardworking moms out there on World Breast Pumping Day on January 27! This day was first established in 2014 by a group of dedicated mothers who wanted to raise awareness and support for breastfeeding and pumping. Breast pumps have been around since the late 1800s, but it wasn't until recent years that they became more widely used and accepted. This day is a reminder of the dedication and love that goes into providing breast milk for babies, and also serves as a way to break the stigma surrounding breastfeeding in public. So let's raise our bottles (or bags) and toast to all the amazing moms making it work every day!
