Lyndsay is a mom of two, the president and owner of Pumping Station, LLC, and the inventor of Pump-a-Pair Hands-Free Pumping Accessory.

How many children do you have? I have two amazing daughters: Madeline is three years old, and Zofia is two years old. They keep us busy!

How did you come up with the idea for your product?  When I returned to work after having my first daughter, I decided to continue breastfeeding and to use a breast pump while at work. I quickly discovered that the time spent breast pumping can be very tedious while holding the horns! I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on some of the hands-free solutions that were currently on the market so instead I spent the time developing a new, fast, easy and affordable hands-free pumping accessory, Pump-a-Pair!  I tested the prototypes myself while pumping for both of my daughters, making changes until I was satisfied that I had the best product possible for pumping moms!

What’s your favorite parenting tip?  Pick your battles! I have two headstrong daughters who are in the age of trying to show their independence, and I have found that by allowing them to win smaller battles of showing their independence that they truly do listen when I need them to and we are all happier for it!

How do you get your family to eat healthy food and/or exercise?  The best tip that I have to keep our entire family eating healthy food is to always have assorted fresh fruit in a decorative bowl on the counter.  We eat with our eyes first, and if you see a pretty bowl with fresh fruit that is what you will want to eat! Also, my kids know that they can help themselves to the fruit whenever they want and they love that they can get it themselves, so instead of asking for a snack that might not be as healthy they eat fresh fruit!  And it looks great on your counter too!

How do you recharge your batteries?  Almost every night my husband and I sit by our fire pit on our deck outside and catch up on our days and just sit and relax and enjoy each other’s company!  It is one of my favorite times of the day, and it can really just melt the stress away!
