MFO x Baby Mama Entry #17: One Tough Mama at the Firing Range

(Picture: That's me being timed by the instructor.Oh, I got the highest score from among the trainees -- not bad for a lactating mom!)

The weirdest place I ever expressed milk in was at the Philippine Air Force Firing Range in Villamor Air Base. I was then employed in an office that required gun-training before I could be assigned my own gun. I could not go more than 4 hours without pumping. So after a few hours as a gun-slinging tough-guy, I had to retreat to the ladies room for nursing-mommy duties. The firing range apparently did not have many women users -- the ladies' room was dark (no working lights), dusty, and waterless. There wasn't even a door lock! I positioned myself near the door so no one could come in while I pumped. Thank goodness for baby wipes, alcohol and hand sanitizer. I must have used up an entire pack of each!
