Hi Claire,

I'm a little confused!  Are you talking about creating a place to store her pump on her pjs?

Yes,  she has recently been approved for a pump. We are trying to figure out how to keep it in her pj top.  Her nurse suggested a pouch in the center of the back....

I would ask if the nurse has ever slept with a pump pressing up against the rib cage!  My suggestion is to thing about l=places that have plenty of cushion like the belly, or side.  If she rolls over and is on top of the pumps it could be very uncomfortable!  Take a look at the website above and if you have questions send them to pumpwear!  They're really helpful!
