do not disturb sign is not enough- i guess!!!!!!

Postby jennellis » Wed Mar 23, 2011 9:00 am

Well since I am pumping at work. I printed out a Do Not Disturb sign to put on my LOCKED door while I pump in my classroom. But apparently that is not enough. Today I have had the custodian AND the Principal unlock and open my door while I was all hooked up :lol: not to mention that both are males!!!

So does anyone know where I can find an appropriate sign to put on my door. I was going to put one with a symbol of a mother nurseing her baby (so people would know why my door was locked) but I am not sure if that is ok for elementary school??? What do you think?

You could also just do a "Please Always Knock Before Entering" sign.

I can guarantee neither of those men will make that mistake again, though! :lol:

I have had to pump in odd locations many times b/c I am in sales...and actually had the GM of a TV station walk in on me while I was pumping in her private conference room (she knew I was there...but forgot) and she had a whole convo with me before leaving! At least she wasn't uncomfortable about it...lol!

Oh I feel your pain!! I have trouble finding somewhere decent to pump at school... I have even had kids walk in and start talking to me and I felt so uncomfortable! They looked at me every strangely! :lol: My pump is really noisy! Thankfully the males I worked with have both had breastfeeding wives so they didn't care but I'm always on edge feeding at work... But I was so glad I persisted and was able to keep feeding! Hope they leave you aone now! :D

How horrible!!! I was walked in on once while pumping at work. I'm a high school teacher and had to go to the nurse's office to pump. The nurse unlocked the door and proceeded to talk to me while doing whatever the hell it was that she wanted. She knew I was in there but didn't respect my desire for privacy. It REALLY made me mad! What it a student would have come in also. That would have been so uncomfortable for me and the student. I'll NIP no problem, but I do NOT want anyone seeing me pump. I can barely handle DH and my LOs watching me pump. I also just am not OK with people I work with seeing my breasts

I always just made a sign that said, "Pumping, please knock." I couldn't really say don't come in because I am a nurse and they might need me in critical care.

I LOVE that sign posted above with the cow! It's so cute! I definitely would have hung that up if I would have had it.

I have been walked in on too...it's uncomfortable! But luckily I keep my breasts pretty covered by my hands-free nursing bra, so even when I was walked in on, they only would have seen my nips if they would have looked directly at the inside of the horns.

Hope the new sign helps!!! Maybe get a hooter hider or other nursing cover to cover yourself when pumping if this keeps happening.

If you arent shy, I would let them get the full shot. It wont ever happen again :lol:


I work in a hospital, and was pumping in my office. I had a sign on the door ( I shared my office). So a surgeon walks right in, sits down, and proceeds to ask me questions about his diet. He sat there for 45 minutes while I pumped, and after it clicked off after 30 minutes, and just talked away. My Medela was humming the entire time. He had NO clue. It was hilarious. I honestly didnt care, but he is an awkward dude anyway, and I know he would have really been freaked if he knew what I was doing under my shawl :bbs:

How about "Open this door and I will punch you"?

I like the little cow sign. It's cute.

I have one that says OCCUPIED DO NOT ENTER with a bottle on it. It seems to work well. I'm the only one that uses that office in general though.

I would call the principal out on inappropriately barging in, and then I would ask him how to make it clear to others that your door needs to remain locked.
