Abstract

The present invention is a system of removable breast pump carrying case covers. These covers are made of flexible material, similar to materials used for women’s handbags. The covers slip over the outside of the case and attach securely using some type of secure fastener like snaps, zippers, or a hook and loop fastening system. When a woman wants to change the look of the carrying case, she simply detaches the cover and places a new one over the case, securing it easily.

Interchangeable breast pump carrying case covers

As medical research continues to recommend that women breast feed their babies for health reasons, more and more women are confronting the challenges involved in expressing milk while at work. For many reasons professional women may choose to carry their breast pumping equipment discreetly. Traditionally, this has meant paying more money for a breast pumping system that had its own ugly, neutral-colored carrying case. Unfortunately, these cases are unattractive, unwieldy and emblazoned prominently with the brand-name of the breast pump manufacturer. It would be a great improvement to offer a carrying case that could be accessorized to match a woman's clothing.

The present invention is a system of removable breast pump carrying case covers. These covers are made of flexible material, similar to materials used for women's handbags. The covers slip over the outside of the case and attach securely using some type of secure fastener like snaps, zippers, or a hook and loop fastening system. When a woman wants to change the look of the carrying case, she simply detaches the cover and places a new one over the case, securing it easily.
