Day in day out at work, I have a pail of water underneath my office desk. Every morning, I will carry the pail and change its water in the pantry, drawing inquisitive and judgemental stares. Some colleagues would just look at me strangely, some would comment while some would asked with much curiosity.
So far, I’ve received several comments about the pail:
#1 “Wow, you drink so much water in a day? Even bring a pail to fill it?”
#2 “Are you cleaning your desk today?”
And #3 was the funniest – “Are you rearing fish?”
Ladies & gentlemen, please meet my Anakku Tablet Sterilizer/Disinfectant. As I pump twice at work everyday, this container is used to contain and disinfect my breastpump parts. Each disinfectant tablet lasts 24 hours, hence the daily change of water. Compared to Steam Sterilizer, this is convenient and very portable. Plus, it only costs me RM30+ with a pack of tablets.
After giving a detailed explanation, especially when I mentioned “I pump at work”, the eyes would usually shift downward to my boobs. I bet their next question in mind is, “How does she breastfeed with such small boobs?” 🙂
