March Sponsor: Sarah Wells Bags

Pumping, especially in the military, means having to lug a breast pump around due to separation during the workday (or for trainings, TDYs, or deployment). Milspouse mamas also have to juggle pump transportation into their workday, or frequent travel (like PCSing or travel to see family with a new baby). Sarah Wells Breast Pump Bags, a company founded by Sarah Wells (mom, wife and entrepreneur) in 2011, wants to make pumping a little easier for breastfeeding and pumping moms with their stylish and uniform compliant breast pump bags.
Sarah is a 30-something mama living in the Washington-DC area with her two girls, Maddy (6) and Abby (2), and husband, Greg. Before starting her business, she led several national nonprofits working on women’s health and consumer advocacy issues. She also traveled the world over speaking to policymakers about improving the quality of health care for Americans. Sarah became an entrepreneur due to her personal breastfeeding journey.
The idea for a stylish and functional breast pump bag came after the birth of her first daughter, Maddy. Sarah was an exclusively-pumping mom, who quickly found that carrying a breast pump (in the ugly manufacturer’s bag) plus her purse, lunch cooler, computer bag; not to mention pump accessories, keys, and cell phone brought about new and unexpected challenges. Tired of feeling like a pack mule walking down the streets of Washington, DC, and not able to find an ‘all-in-one’ bag that could separately store her breast pump and other items but not scream “I’M PUMPING”, she created her own breast pump bag. And with that her business was started!
Sarah Wells Bags has many different styles of breast pump bags to match anyone's personal style. In particular, two models, the Kelly, and the Claire, were created specifically to meet uniform regulations for military mothers.

With function and style, the Sarah Wells “Kelly” breast pump bag does it all! With easily-concealed backpack and shoulder straps, this pump bag is designed for ultimate on-the-go pumping convenience and is 100% USA MILITARY UNIFORM COMPLIANT.
The “Kelly” bag converts from a functional, sporty backpack to a chic shoulder bag with ease and is the only designer breast pump bag with a dedicated pump pocket large enough for various breast pumps, such as the Medela Symphony or the Spectra S1 or S2.
Carefully designed in consultation with a focus group of Activity Duty military mamas, the all-black “Kelly” features a uniform-compliant exterior with modern pink lining
